Agents Seeking Paranormal Romance Writers

Updated 10/28/17

In spite of dire warnings, paranormal romance is not reaching market saturation - except for vampires.

That means your touching love story between a time-traveling intergalactic pirate and a kleptomaniac housewife can find representation.

There are 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. Submission requirements frequently change, and agents may close their lists or switch agencies.
