Velma Dinkley- Our Scooby Doo detective is on the case for Adult Romance with heat, strong characters, and strong story development. (Not seeking Historic Romance) In New Adult, Velma would like to see edgy ideas, stories that evoke strong emotions, and manuscripts that are current and fresh. Velma's taste in Young Adult leans towards memorable characters in powerful relationships with the kind of angst and heart-fluttering moments YA readers crave.
The Tardis- Our Dr. Who inspired agent interests include talented, hard-working new authors with a fresh, unique voice and hook. Her specialty is commercial fiction, with an emphasis in children’s literature (from picture book-teen), romance (contemporary, paranormal and historical), upmarket women’s fiction and select nonfiction. Specific likes include historical, multi-cultural, paranormal, sci-fi/fantasy, gritty, thrilling and darker contemporary novels, middle grade with heart, and short, quirky picture books. (note no PB accepted in this contest) The Tardis is always drawn to an open and positive attitude in an author, good grammar, and fantastical, engaging and sexy plots.
Princess Leia- Our Star Wars Princess of Alederan won't take no for an answer! She wants fiction, especially science fiction and fantasy, young adult fiction, women's fiction, cozy mysteries, and romance.
Annie Oakley- Annie has her eye on a bulls-eye! This American sharpshooter is looking for strong literary fiction that emphasizes craft and style equally, and doesn't sacrifice plot and character for beautiful sentences; young adult of all genres; very selective middle grade that connects me to a strong main character; science-fiction and fantasy; and smart detective novels (more Sherlock Holmes than cozy mysteries).
Rose from Dr. Who- Our British television star is looking for Middle Grade: contemporary, fantasy, action/adventure, or historical. YA: sci-fi, dystopian/post-apocalyptic, contemporary, historical, BUT it must have a strong romantic element. New Adult Contemporary Romance and just plain Romance! Rose would jump in the Tardis to find a YA or NA romance set during WWII (and/or the 1920s) with a time travel element.
