23 Why Agents reject things with Jennie Goloboy

Listen to the PODCAST

In my interview with Jennie Goloboy, a talented and ambitious literary agent for Red Sofa Literary, We talk about:

Rejecting manuscripts (and the sub-genres that used to be really popular but are now becoming passe)

WorldCon 2013 (stay tuned to learn what turns out to be hot this year)

Ray Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles (and the horrible things on the edge of happening)

On following trends: “You read something and you think ‘I would like to do this, but better.’ And it’s a great way to start, but not a great way to finish.”

The mystery writer Lawrence Block and his book Telling Lies for Fun and Profit

50 Shades of Grey (is this really the first time I’ve referenced that book?)

Groom of the Tyrannosaur Queen!

Maryrose Wood and The Mysterious Howling

Paranormal romance+sasquatch+Hugh Jackman=…shaving creme scene?

Didactic literature

Der Struwwelpeter describes a boy who does not groom himself properly and is consequently unpopular. 🙁

On Tyrannosaur Queen: “People find a way to make things better by…connecting better.”
