Karen Laniata

Agency: M. Cassini Literary Associates

Karen- I am a huge fan of literary thrillers. I am looking for mystery and suspense/thriller novels, as well as horror novels with a unique voice. I'm looking for a great steampunk story. Please, no vampires, werewolves and psychic detectives.

Marco- I am looking for dark, edgy and sinister YA fiction. Absolutely no fantasy/steampunk. Anything in commercial fiction with a voice that can grip me from the very beginning. If you make me miss my subway stop, I am sold.

We are closed to non-fiction submissions until September 2012.
