A shower of flower petals and thanks to this month's lovely Secret Agent, Beth Campbell of BookEnds Literary Agency!
After an academic career filled with publishing internships, Beth joined BookEnds as a literary assistant in September 2012 and was promoted to Assistant Literary Agent in 2015. She's diligently building her client list and is always excited to meet an author with an excellent story. She's also spent years as the company's rights coordinator and now works alongside Moe to continue selling foreign and audio rights.
Beth's obsession with books began with a distinct fantasy/sci-fi flavor, and she's happily never kicked the addiction. She is primarily interested in signing clients within those genres, YA, romantic suspense, and mystery. She loves seeing diverse characters (sexuality, gender, race, you name it!) and strong friendships across all genres.
Beth currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and their cat. Outside of reading, her personal hobbies include drawing, cooking, gaming, and spending far too much time on the Internet.
What Beth is currently looking for:
I'm currently accepting submissions in fantasy, sci-fi, YA (no middle grade), mystery, and suspense. Right now I'm particularly interested in YA of all sub genres and am always on the lookout for diverse characters and stories that feature strong friendships and/or found families.
Many thanks, Beth! Winners forthcoming.
