INSTINCT by Jason M. Hough

Art. Patience. Strategy.

My passion as an agent is strategizing profitable long-term careers with my authors. I want clients to love the books they write and make money writing them. Crafting that kind of balance between artistic and commercial success takes communication, teamwork and a focus on "Art. Patience. Strategy."

In terms of personality, I tend to be chatty with clients. I aim to set clear expectations and explain publishing processes so authors can focus as much as possible on writing. To that end, I communicate regularly and keep my client list small in order to support each author effectively.

I represent authors who write middle grade novels (all sub-genres), young adult novels (all sub-genres), romance novels (all sub-genres) and science fiction/fantasy for the adult market.

I try to answer professional questions as time allows on twitter @SaraMegibow


Always LGBTQIA+ Friendly!
