I know, it’s confusing. I’m a guy in publishing, I watch the Bachelor, I like to wear orange shirts, I watch a lot of sports, I attended RWA…. So I just want to make it clear:
Yes, I represent women’s fiction.
I know! Women’s fiction. Not just for women anymore.
Now, when it comes to romance romance, I should probably clarify a few things: I don’t represent category romance, and if it’s too squarely in pure romance territory there are probably agents out there who would do better by you than me.
I did attend RWA though, because in addition to more mainstream women’s fiction and memoir I’m also interested in what I like to call “romance plus.” As in romantic suspense, romantic sci-fi, romantic (fill in the blank).
All this said, especially because all of these genre distinctions blur into each other I still stand by my main sentiment on the subject — when in doubt, query me.
Hope that clears things up.
