Wednesday, 7 March 2012  |  Posted by Brenda Drake

As we make our final decisions on the entries for the March Madness Agent Pitch Match, we’d like to introduce the second batch of fantabulous agents playing in the final round. 
And here are the second five agents …

 Gordon Warnock

Gordon combines industry knowledge with a sharp editorial eye and experience as a college-level tutor to provide friendly and thorough aid with polishing manuscripts and book proposals. He’s looking for Contemporary Commercial Narrative, YA (Think Ellen Hopkins and Jay Asher, not Stephenie Meyer), Pets, Humor. Some of his favorites are: Super Sad True Love StoryThe Garden of EdenFeedReal Ultimate PowerUnlucky Lucky Days, and Nietzsche’s Kisses.
Judith Engracia

Judith is currently building her client list and looking for all types of fiction, especially middle grade, young adult, urban fantasy, steampunk, and paranormal romance.When she’s not reading, Judith is either training for her next martial-arts test or causing mischief with her Siberian Husky, Grendel.

 Carlie Webber

Carlie is building her agenting career on her favorite genres: young adult, middle grade, romance, horror, mystery, suspense, thrillers, literary fiction, contemporary fantasy and women’s fiction. Her ongoing submissions wishlist includes but is not limited to high-concept YA, literary suspense, grunge era nostalgia and things that go bump in the night.
 Louise Fury

Louise believes in the power of marketing and is constantly on the lookout for authors who know how to promote themselves. She is seeking well written, teen Sci-Fi and Young Adult horror.  She is also on the hunt for deep, dark contemporary YA and select Middle Grade fiction with a literary feel– it must be realistic and thought provoking and the characters must be authentic and original. Louise is a huge adult horror fan, but also loves romance (especially Regency & Victorian) and is looking for steam/cyberpunk.

 Kevan Lyon

Kevan handles women’s fiction, with an emphasis on commercial women’s fiction, young adult fiction and all genres of romance. Kevan works with her authors to help them realize their dreams of being published and to build a long term career as a writer.
