A heads up for the writers out there

March 31, 2011

Hi all. My agent just sent me a note that may be of interest to those of you who are writers looking for representation.

Jessica Alvarez, former Harlequin editor, has joined BookEnds, LLC, as a literary agent, effective immediately. During her tenure at Harlequin, between 2001 and 2008, she worked on a variety of imprints, and was part of the editorial teams that launched HQN Books, Red Dress Ink, Love Inspired Historicals, HarlequinNEXT, and the Steeple Hill trade program. Most recently, Ms. Alvarez has been freelance editing for a number of clients, among them Harlequin/Silhouette, Scholastic Books, and Thomas Nelson.

Ms. Alvarez brings a strong editorial background and expertise in both series and single title romance to BookEnds. She is actively looking for submissions in women’s fiction and all varieties of romance, and can be reached directly at jalvarez@bookends-inc.com.

    Thanks for the heads up! Even if I AM late to the game w/your blog post! You mentioned she’s your agent. What more can you express about the agency and your general experience. Is she your first agent?

    My agent is Jessica Faust, who is also with BookEnds. I’ve been very happy with her. And yes, she’s my first and only agent. She also runs a great blog for writers on the BookEnds website. Lots of great info.
