New Literary Agent – NICOLE RESCINITI

PLEASE NOTE: The Seymour Agency is Christian Agency and I am sure they will still lean that way even with the addition of Nicole.  But she is open to the following:

Romance, mainstream suspense, thrillers, mysteries, YA and inspirational novels are welcome. A consummate science geek and card-carrying Mensa member, Nicole would love to find the next great science fiction/fantasy novel or action/adventure masterpiece.

Nicole is a member of AAR, ACFW, RWA, and Mensa. She holds degrees in biology, psychology, and behavioral neuroscience.

So if you have a smart, tight read that she won’t be able to put down? A signature voice she’ll fight to represent?  Then perhaps you should query her to see if she is interested in you and your manuscript.

The Seymour Agency is currently open to submissions from new and established authors.
Be sure to include:
       +Genre/Target Audience
       +Word Count
       +Contact Information
       +References (conference, recommendation, etc)
Nicole accepts queries in the above genres in addition to: Action/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and YA/Children’s.
To query Nicole Resciniti:

In the interest of protecting the environment, The Southwest Florida Office with Nicole Resciniti has gone paperless. Please forward all submissions electronically.

For email queries, a one page letter will suffice. No attachments, please. Nicole prefers email queries and asks that you paste the first five pages of your manuscript into the bottom of your email.

The Main New York Office and Mary Sue accepts snail mail. Include the first three chapters, synopsis, and a SASE for our response (see contact page for address). Be sure to include the appropriate postage if you want your materials returned. Our policy is to recycle manuscripts.

To Contact The New York Main Office or Mary Sue Seymour:
Mary Sue Seymour, AAR
The Seymour Agency
475 Miner Street Road
Canton, New York 13617
Phone: (315) 386-1831

The Seymour Agency also includes a prayer card to soften a rejection. If this offends you, you may want to query someone else.  If you have a Christian focused novel, it sound like Mary Sue should be the one to query.  She is looking for: Christian, Inspirational, Romance (including category), and Non-Fiction.  To query Mary Sue Seymour:

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable for queries and partials. However, we only review complete manuscripts on an exclusive basis.

We make a conscious effort to reply to every query we receive. If you do not receive a request for additional materials within three weeks, you should assume that we are not interested in that particular project.

Talk tomorrow,
