Agents Seeking Paranormal Romance Writers

Paranormal romance is reaching market saturation - especially vampires - which means agents are moving on to the Next Best Thing. But that does not mean your touching love story between a time-traveling intergalactic pirate and a kleptomaniac housewife can't find representation.

There are still a number of good solid agents looking to represent paranormal romance. All of these agents are accepting queries as of this writing. Make sure you read the agency website and the agent's bio before submitting.

A word to the wise - do not send queries during the "Dead Month." Wait for the fall.
