Free Fall Friday

Last Friday I announced that I would have a new agent read the first pages submitted from the picture prompt.  You have until August first to submit a first page to kathy (dot) temean (at) gmail (dot) comFour first pages will be picked and reviewed by Liza Fleissig from the Liza Royce Agency and posted on August 12th.

I met Liza Fleissig and Ginger Harris-Dontzin in June at the NJSCBWI Conference.  This year Liza along with Ginger took the step to open The Liza Royce Agency to represent established authors and new writers of children’s books.  She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business with a degree in Finance, and the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law with a JD.  Liza & Ginger bring 20 years of litigation and negotiating experience to the publishing field.  Liza says, “After years of been inundated by friends and colleagues to help represent their various works, I decided to take the plunge and I couldn’t be happier”.

Liza has a large adult based clientele from established authors of fiction and nonfiction to writers in the earlier stages of their development.  On the children’s side of publishing, she is interested in everything from picture books, middle grade and young adult.  Although the books she has represented leans towards suspense/thriller, commercial woman’s fiction and comedy, she is open to anything that really speaks to her.

Thought this might be a nice way to introduce her and a first page might be a nice way for you to introduce yourself to her.

Talk tomorrow,



  1. Kathy, with how you just phrased the “you meet her, she meets you” thing, I started hearing “Fiddler On the Roof”… *singing*…Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match… 😀

    I was going to call you a Yenta, but after looking it up, that’s actually the incorrect term! A Yenta is a gossipy busybody. The correct term is a Shadchen! 🙂 Oh, Kathy, you Shadchen, you! 😉
