New Agent Looking to Build List

amanda-leuckAmanda Leuck started at Spencerhill Associates as an editorial assistant and last August was promoted to agent. She is actively looking to build her client list.

She started her career in various facets of the media, including work on a TV talk show, at a fashion magazine, as a print journalist, and as an on-air traffic reporter. After graduating from New York University,

Amanda went on to study literacy and literature at the post-graduate level. It was then that she developed a passion for the publishing industry.

Amanda is seeking: strong, character-driven stories, written with an unforgettable voice. She’s looking for literary and commercial YA, new adult fiction, urban fantasy, and romance in all genres, including edgy romantic suspense, contemporary and paranormal with a fresh twist.

Amanda has sold 5 books right out of the gate. Publishers for those books were Harper Impluse, Harper’s Love Inspired, and Harlequin Desire. Spencerhill has a strong romance background, but appears they may want to spread their wings with Amanda.

How to submit: Send all submissions to submission [at] Send the query letter in the body of the email. Address the query to Amanda. Include the pitch, and information about past publishing credits in the letter. Attach a detailed synopsis, and attach the first three chapter in .doc, rtf or txt format to the email.


I am posting the address below, but do not use it to query.
