WERONIKA (Veronica) E. K. JANCZUK [WEKJ] is the founder of, president of, and literary agent at the NYC-based JANCZUK LITERARY AGENCY (JLA).

Founded in 2021, JLA is a full-service boutique literary agency specializing in a broad range of fiction and non-fiction for young adults and adults.

The agency’s mission is to identify and nurture the best writers, looking to build lifelong careers. We offer literary representation for print and digital media, and partner with the best agents to place translation, film/TV, and other subsidiary rights for our authors and their projects.

+ On Hugo-, Nebula-, Campbell-, & Locus-Winning && Internationally Bestselling Author Max Gladstone's THREE PARTS DEAD, the first in the Craft Sequence:
"Stunningly good. Stupefyingly good." —Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times-bestselling author of The Name of the Wind

WEKJ was just nineteen-y.o. when she and Max found one another. That origin story is here.

+ On Zoe Hana Mikuta's GEARBREAKERS && GODSLAYERS: [who was just eighteen-y.o. when she wrote the first!]
"Zoe Hana Mikuta’s GEARBREAKERS will ruin your life, and I mean that in the best way possible . . . Will blow your mind." —Culturess

"A brutal and commanding debut . . . Mikuta has delivered an extraordinary novel that perfectly balances high-octane action with intimate character development and tender hope." —Vulture

"Even more entertaining than a big summer blockbuster." —PopSugar

"An absolute joyride of a story set in a vivid, arresting world. GEARBREAKERS is sci-fi at its very finest, combining the grandeur of mecha fighting machines with the intimacy of (splendidly feral) found family. Zoe Hana Mikuta is a talent to be in awe of." —Chloe Gong, New York Times-bestselling author of These Violent Delights

"Dark, fierce, thrilling, and tender, GEARBREAKERS will make your blood sing . . . An electric heart beats on every page of this breathlessly paced cyberpunk adventure." —Nina Varela, author of Crier's War

+ On Teresa Frohock's MISERERE:
"With richly developed, complex characters and a talent for portraying the horrific nature of evil, the author relates a compelling tale of faith rediscovered, trust regained, and hope reawakened." —Library Journal, starred review & SF/F debut of the month

"This stellar read is profoundly human . . ." —Booklist [commenting on a later title in a parallel series, but so true to the Frohock canon, it hurts!]

+ On Amanda Harlowe's CONSENSUAL HEX: [which received JLA input before Harlowe turned client!]
"An intense, unflinching, and supernatural coming-of-age tale." —Kirkus, what-should-have-been-a-review-starred!

"Gloriously angry and deliciously weird, CONSENSUAL HEX is oh-so-satisfying—a tale of rage and revenge that's delivered with both heart and savage wit. Darker than a midnight sky on a new moon—I devoured it in a single, breathless gulp." —Katie Lowe, author of The Furies

+ On Sara J. Henry's LEARNING TO SWIM: [which received JLA input before its publication!]
winner of the Anthony Award for Best First Novel, the Agatha Award for Best First Novel, and the Mary Higgins Clark Award
"A stunner. This disturbing, moving, compelling book will keep readers engaged until the very last page. It is smart, intense, and full of unexpected plot twists." —Tucson Citizen

"A mesmerizing confluence of intrigue and suspense." —Jamie Ford, author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter & Sweet

JLA is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI).
