Linda Scalissi of 3 Seas Literary Agency seeks women’s fiction, thrillers, young adult, mysteries and romance

3 Seas Literary Agency
P.O. Box 8571
Madison WI 53708

3 Seas is a small (just three agents) full-service literary agency. The agency represents more than 50 authors especially romance authors, but also women’s fiction, science fiction/fantasy, thrillers, young adult and middle grade fiction as well as select nonfiction titles. Here’s what they have to say about themselves:

“In the fourteen years since the agency doors were opened, our agents have successfully sold into all the major publishing houses. Our clients consistently appear on the New York Times, USA Today and Publishers Weekly Best Sellers lists. They have been nominated, and won, many prestigious industry awards, including, the RITA, the Golden Heart, the Holt Medallion, the RT Reviewer’s Choice, the ALA Best Book for Young Adults, the School Library Journal Best Book, and the Bookseller’s Best.”

Linda Scalissi is the newest member of the team and like all new agents, she needs authors! For Linda, not only has reading been a lifetime passion, but she has a strong background in professional proofreading, editing and sales.  She’s looking forward to receiving submissions and building strong, long-term relationships with her clients.

Linda is interested in representing authors of women’s fiction, thrillers, young adult, mysteries and romance.

She’s thrilled to be a part of the publishing industry as it will allow her the opportunity to read to her heart’s content - guilt free! She resides with her husband, two dogs and four rescue goldfish.
