New Agency Accepting Romance
New literary agency, BresslerScoggins Literary Management, is shifting their attention from a large array of subject to a narrower focus. Specifically, romance. "After receiving hundreds upon hundreds of submissions, we have decided to specialize in romance categories, including romantic suspense, paranormal romance, contemporary romance and young adult romance. We also are looking for women's fiction and a very select amount of women's nonfiction (parenting, motivational, business written for women). This also fits in with our new partnership with Mamapalooza." In case you're wondering, Mamapalooza, Inc. is: A company by Women, Promoting (M)others for cultural, social and economic benefit. Dedicated to serving, promoting, celebrating, encouraging, inspiring and awakening ALL mothers through the media and performing fine arts. Musicians, authors, comics, dancers, filmmakers, designers, craftswomen, educators, and community leaders coming together in a collaborative effort to highlight the challenges of motherhood in an ever-evolving personal, social, cultural, sexual and political landscape. Our mission is to empower, encourage and enlighten all women to claim their voice. Establish a new art form that speaks to the unique and collective perspective of women who are mothers, while sharing this with the world. Act as a resource and lifestyle guide for mothers seeking support in mainstream and alternative settings. To support the choices mothers have made, and educate them financially, in order to support these choices. I've heard of Mamapalooza, as my cousin's band, The Mydols, who I blogged about recently, played at a Mamapalooza Festival, but I really didn't know what it was all about.
