Pitching an Agent and a Call for Nominees

fullcircle.jpgToday Rachel Kramer Bussel profiles the Full Circle Literary agency:

Lilly Ghahremani, Esq., came to publishing from a legal background, having worked as an attorney at a firm that represented many authors, though she also did a stint as a freelance editor during law school. Her favorite part of agenting is working with authors and “becoming as excited about a project as the person who started it.” Stefanie Von Borstel has a decade of diverse experience in trade book publishing, including working with the editorial and marketing departments of Penguin and Harcourt. She’s done everything from book publicity and advertising to trade shows and catalogs and likes to work closely with authors to help them best promote their books. Both agents have found writers via writing conferences, blogs, the slush pile, and even Craigslist.
