Win a Critique from agent Patricia Nelson!

Patricia NelsonIt’s a month long celebration here at Sub It Club, and today we’re excited to feature agent Patricia Nelson of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.  To help us celebrate two years of Sub It Club, Patricia is giving away a first five page manuscript critique! Hooray!

Patricia has been with Marsal Lyon Literary Agency since September, 2014. Before becoming an agent, she was an intern at the Angela Rinaldi Literary Agency and in the children’s division at Running Press.

Adult and Young Adult fiction are what Patricia represents. Her agency bio says, “On the adult side, she is interested in literary fiction and commercial fiction in the New Adult, women’s fiction, and romance genres. For YA, she is looking for contemporary/realistic fiction as well YA mystery/thriller, horror, magical realism, science fiction and fantasy. She is also interested in finding exciting multicultural and LGBTQ fiction, both YA and adult. In general, Patricia loves stories with complex characters that jump off the page and thoughtfully drawn, believable relationships – along with writing that makes her feel completely pulled into these characters’ lives and worlds.”

You can learn a lot about Patricia by looking online:

Patricia is actively building her list so if you write in the genres she is looking to represent you definitely want to consider putting her on your list of agents to query.
