Stacey Kondla, Literary Agent - The Rights Factory

Stacey is currently looking for narrative nonfiction projects for Adults, Young Adult, and Middle-Grade in the categories of science, nature, ecology, medicine (not naturopathic), and history. Very interested in science topics presented in fresh and exciting new ways.

She is also now open to horror queries for Adults, Young Adult, and Middle-Grade. Psychological and/or supernatural horror is preferred. Loves gothic fiction. Please no gratuitous torture. Stacey loves horror fiction with substance.

She would love to see more #ownvoices queries from BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ authors and scientists. She would also love to see some awesome representation of middle-aged and older women in fiction.

Stacey is CLOSED to all picture book queries as her list is currently full for that category.

NO memoir, politics, or self-help.
NO general fiction, scifi, fantasy, mystery or literary for any categories.
