Agent Looking for Clients – Karly Caserza

Karly Caserza, Associate Agent at Fuze Literary

Associate Agent Karly Caserza was born in the Philippines and immigrated to Northern California as a child. She obtained her Business Marketing degree and has been a Freelance Graphic Designer for over 10 years. In addition to designing a wide range of print and web promotional material for clients, Karly creates book covers for Short Fuse and promotional graphics for Fuse authors.

Professionally, Karly began her career in the publishing industry as a reader for Tricia Skinner at Fuse Literary. Her responsibilities quickly grew and she was promoted to Literary Assistant, a role that also included a spot on the production team of Short Fuse.

She is also the Marketing Coordinator of the San Francisco Writers Conference, held every President’s Day weekend. In her spare time, Karly is an Adobe Technical Trainer, freelance graphic designer, Young Adult author, video game geek, and art noob.

Karly has a deep love for characters with a strong voice and seeks out stories she can get lost in. Diversity in genre fiction is a major bonus. She specializes in middle grade and young adult genre fiction – Fantasy, Science fiction, Contemporary, Action/Adventure, Commercial, Fantasy, Middle Grade, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, Thriller, Young Adult.

She wants:

  • Gutsy, spirited protagonists who aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo or pursue their dreams.
  • I want more smart, ingenious kids who utilize STEM to tackle their problems/achieve their goals.
  • Immersive and captivating but low-concept world-building. I’m not the right fit for your work if I have to keep backtracking to read world-building details in order to understand the story progression.
  • Where are my #ownvoices, diverse, underrepresented, kickass authors? Send me your work.
  • Asian/African/Latin mythology retelling/twist/elements. Send them my way.
