Representing Adult Authors

Submissions

Evan is currently developing his list and is looking for submissions in the following genres:

Literary fiction, featuring unique voices, intriguing characters, writing ranging from real to the surreal, and stories that ponder big questions – even when narrow in scope.

Historical fiction, literary rather than genre, featuring epic settings, multi-generational legacies, and compelling character drama.

Fantasy fiction, written for adult readers, meaning mature themes more than mature content, laced with intricate lore, tangled politics, and relatable motivations.

Science fiction, set in unique and evocative locations, challenging elements of contemporary society through a futuristic lens or alternative reality.

Sports history and memoir, ideally narrative driven and reflecting to some extent on bigger issues or the wider world beyond sports.

Submissions by email only, please, including a short biography, synopsis, and 20-page sample in Word or PDF. Replies will be sent only for submissions being actively considered.
