Your awesome query will go to Kristin Nelson | Nelson Literary Agency

Thank you for thinking of me. I'm interested in:
• Voice and character driven stories well told. How you tell that story doesn’t have to fit into a neat little category.
Literary or literary/commercial adult novels (Hotel on the Corner of Bitter & Sweet, Where’d You Go Bernadette?, A Man Called Ove)
• Historical/literary adult novels
• Big crossover adult novels (literary or upmarket level writing) w/one foot squarely in genre (Wool, Station 11, Lexicon, Ready Player One)
• Literary Speculative Fiction
• Voice & character-driven thrillers, science fiction & fantasy
• Voice & character-driven upmarket women’s fiction, upmarket and smart Chick Lit and Rom Com (Think Crazy Rich Asians, The Kiss Quotient)
• Young adult & middle grade novels (all genres including contemporary, #ownvoices, boy adventure, magical, girl power, STEM girls are my jam, characters who use brains over brawn)

Nelson Literary Agency does not represent:
• Memoir
• Screenplays
• Short-story collections
• Poetry
• Material for the Christian/inspirational market
