Literary Agent Assistant Mallory C. Brown at TriadaUS Literary is seeking young adult, new adult, women’s fiction, and non-fiction. She is especially drawn to pieces with strong character-driven plots and witty humor. She loves contemporary fiction, low fantasy (think realistic world with a fantastical twist), and romance. Mallory also appreciates a well-placed comma and hopes you do, too.
Some of Mallory’s favorites at the moment are: Gone Girl, Outlander, and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
When querying Mallory, please include the first ten pages in the body of the email.
General Submission Guidelines:
We prefer to receive queries via email. Paste your query into the body of the email. We will not download attachments unless we request them.
We do not respond to postal submissions that aren’t accompanied by a SASE and will not return any material unless a SASE accompanies the submission. Do not send personal checks, money orders, or cash. Additionally, because of new postal regulations, we cannot use metered mail for returns. All self-addressed envelopes must include stamps. If you send a snail mail query, please, send it to:
Dr. Uwe Stender
Triada US Literary Agency
P.O. Box 561
Sewickley, PA 15143
If we haven’t responded after two weeks, we have not received your query.
If one of us rejects your query, do not query the other agents at Triada. If we think that it would appeal to one of our colleagues, we will share it with them and they will be in touch with you.
We strive to keep our response time one of the fastest in the industry. On average, we respond to submissions in one week.
Many agencies can take several months to respond to even solicited submissions. We will respond promptly. If you do not hear from us within two weeks, we did not receive your query. We also encourage you to check with us regularly via email about the progress of your submission.
Lastly, if we request a full manuscript and ultimately decide to reject it, we will explain to you our reasons for doing so.
**Because of the large volume of submissions that we receive, we will only respond to those that follow the above guidelines. Submissions made that do not follow our protocol will be discarded.**
