BookEnds Literary

Since opening its doors in 1999, BookEnds Literary Agency has never strayed from our original goal: Achieving dreams and doing what we love. Representing fiction and nonfiction for adults and children alike, BookEnds agents continue to live their dreams while helping authors achieve theirs.

First opened as a book packaging company, we were originally looking to take our own fresh and fun ideas and find just the right people to create the books publishers and readers were looking for. Over time, we missed working on fiction and seeing what could come from an author's imagination as well as an author's platform. So not two years after opening its doors, BookEnds changed its literary status to Agency.

While the industry has changed, and BookEnds has grown, the one thing we've never lost is our passion and love for books and the authors who create them.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS
Moe Ferrara is interested in fiction for adults, young adults, and the middle-grade reader. When it comes to all subsets and ages for science fiction and fantasy, she loves easily-accessible sci-fi, imaginative fantasy locales, and pain-in-the-ass heroines. She's looking for most MG and YA genres including contemporary, horror, magical realism, and anything LGBTQ-centric. She also loves being surprised by books she never knew she wanted! On her adult romance radar are all things m/m and m/f—plus everything in between—within all heat levels and genres, including both category and single-title romance. For the most up-to-date wants, see her #MSWL tweets, #MSWL page, and various #MSWL posts on the BookEnds site.

She is not a good fit for picture books through early chapter books, women's fiction, or inspirational romances.
