What agents rep Paranormal mystery/romance or urban fantasies? It's a new genre i'm trying my hand at.

Well, I do know that Rachel Vater eats up that genre--it's one of her favorites, if not her all time favorite. It's a totally hot genre right now.

Toni, I just PM'd you a list I've culled over the past six months (sans agency, sorry. I was lazy and just cut and pasted from my Excel sheet).

Double check for current-ness on their web sites, but these should give you a start.


Here's the crappily formatted list for anyone else who's interested. I got rejections from most but gained two full requests and multiple partials.

i think you're right, waylander.

Also, I should have noted that the agent at Wendy Sherman Associates who requested a partial of my PR is Michelle Brower. Seems like she's new and is building her list.

FYI, WSA doesn't do genre fiction, apparently (culled from their website):

"What we are not looking for includes genre fiction such as category romance, mystery, fantasy and science fiction. We do not handle children's books. We do not handle screenplays."

Toni,
Try agentquery.com. Just click on horror or fantasy. Try Ginger Clark and Chris Lotts. Good luck! ;)

go figure, huh? the agent who requested the full of same 'script has *nothing* about paranormal on the web site bio of him. it's only because i read the agency blog that i discovered he might be interested. i'm beginning to understand more and more the need to 'query widely,' as Her Snarkness always says.
