2 New Agents Seeking Clients - Fantasy, Sci-fi, Nonfiction, Thrillers, YA and more

Updated 5/23/20

Here are two new agents looking to build their client lists. Moe Ferrara (BookEnds) is seeking science fiction, fantasy, and romance. Amanda Rutter (Azantian) is seeking fantasy, science fiction, and YA contemporary.

ALWAYS check the agency website before submitting. Agents may switch agencies or close their lists and submission requirements may change.

If these agents do not suit your needs, you can find a comprehensive list of new and established agents seeking clients here: Agents Seeking Clients.


Moe Ferrara of BookEnds Literary Agency


About Moe: "Becoming a literary agent was fitting for the girl who, as a small child, begged her dad to buy her a book simply because "it has a hard cover." Growing up, she had a hard time finding YA books outside of Christopher Pike and R. L. Stine, and instead tackled Tom Clancy or her mom's romance novels. Though her career path zigzagged a bit—she attended college as a music major, earned a JD from Pace Law School, then worked various jobs throughout the publishing industry—Moe was thrilled to join the BookEnds team in May of 2015 as a literary agent and the foreign rights manager."

What she is seeking: Moe is interested in science fiction and fantasy for all age groups (no picture books). She loves a bit (or a lot!) of romance in her fiction, so the right contemporary or historical romance will spark her interest. She's LGBTQ friendly, so send her that male/male erotic romance in your back pocket! At this time she's not looking for nonfiction, women's fiction, or cozy mysteries.

Amanda Rutter of Azantian Literary


About Amanda: Amanda started work in publishing with Strange Chemistry, the YA imprint of Angry Robot. After moving on from this role, she began a freelance editor/proofreader career with such companies as Wise Ink Publishing, Cornerstones Literary Agency, Aconyte Books, Black Library, and Titan Books. She was also a literary agent with Red Sofa Literary Agency, representing YA and adult science fiction and fantasy. Amanda is keen to find timeless stories in SFF, with lush writing and memorable characters.

What she is seeking: Amanda is looking for adult, YA and MG fantasy and science fiction. She is particularly keen to find hopeful science fiction, political fantasy and fresh takes on familiar tropes. Stories that definitely agree with her include: enemy to friend dynamics, women in STEM environments, antagonists with realistic motivations, and characters that overcome challenges in surprising ways. Stories that don't appeal include steampunk and zombie fiction! She would like to see witty dialogue, strong world building, and tales about characters from diverse backgrounds that don't concentrate on issues, but explore all facets of life.
