The BBCHAT is designed to get the personality of the agent in the spotlight, and an enterprising querier can use this information to figure out if the agent is a good fit for them, rather than just another agent who happens to cover their genre.
The last question involves something that oddly resembles a contest, and ties in with the blog name.
Today's guest for the BBCHAT is Jordy Albert of the Booker Albert Agency. She holds a B.A. in English from Pennsylvania State University, and a M.A. from Millersville University of Pennsylvania. She has worked with Marisa Corvisiero during her time at the L. Perkins Agency and the Corvisiero Literary Agency. She is a fan of the SyFy, History and Discovery Channels, enjoys studying languages (French/Japanese), spends time teaching herself how to knit, is a HUGE fan of Doctor Who, and loves dogs.
She is looking for stories that capture her attention from beginning to end; stories that have heart, and characters that are hard to forget. She loves intelligent characters with a great sense of humor. She would love to see fresh, well-developed plots featuring travel with unique, exotic settings, competitions, or time travel. Jordy is specifically looking for:
* Middle Grade - fantasy, action/adventure, or historical.
* YA - sci-fi, dystopian, contemporary, historical (heavy on romance).
* NEW ADULT ROMANCE
* Romance and Women's Fiction
What are you reading right now and why do you like it?
Poison Princess, by Kresley Cole. It’s different from what she usually writes, and I think the characters and premise are fascinating.
Paper or plastic?
Paper. I enjoy my Kindle, but I love the feel of a book in my hands.
What's on your bucket list?
- See a play at the Globe Theatre
- Visit the Colosseum
- Knit a Doctor Who scarf
- Grow an apple tree
- Travel!!! UK, Italy, France, Greece, Australia and New Zealand
- Visit all the tennis grand slams.
Have you ever ridden a mechanical bull? (It’s on MY bucket list, so that's why it's here).
If you had a guaranteed sell, what type of story would you like to represent?
A YA (romance) set in another country, or on another planet.
