New UK literary agent

Post by EC2 » Wed March 25th, 2009, 4:37 pm

Forwarding in case anyone's interested.

Former Headline Publisher Anne Williams is embarking on a new career as a
literary agent, in association with Kate Hordern, ex- Foreign Rights
Director of Victor Gollancz, who established her Bristol-based agency eight
years ago. Anne, who will be based in London, worked for over thirteen
years at Headline where she edited such top-selling women's fiction writers
as Lyn Andrews, Sheila O'Flanagan and Dee Williams. She is actively
looking for sagas, contemporary women's fiction and historical fiction, as
well as crime and thrillers.
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

I've just received an announcement that an established media group in the U.K. (The Leo Media Group) is expanding their books section and looking for submissions. They're interested in acting as a traditional literary agent as well as developing film projects. If anyone's interested, I've posted the announcement on my blog at www.HistoricalNovels.info.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info
