New Literary Agent Alert: Kara Leigh Miller of Corvisiero Literary

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Kara Leigh Miller of Corvisiero Literary) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.




About Kara: Kara Leigh Miller is a new agent at Corvisiero Literary. Find her on Twitter, and see her official website here. She began her venture into the publishing world as a wet behind the ears author back in 2010. She started as an intern for a small press and worked her way up to Senior Editor within months. From there, she moved on to become the Editorial Direct at Anaiah Press, LLC. Now, as a well versed author and editor, she’s excited to switch sides to become an agent.

(Querying? Read advice on how to find the most target agents to query.)

She is seeking:

— romance for adults or teens or new adult (contemporaries and romantic suspense are her forte, but she’s willing to consider just about anything as long as it’s well written [except things comparable to 50 Shades of Grey], including paranormal and urban fantasy
— mystery (teens and adults)
— thrillers (teens and adults)
— horror (teens and adults)
— inspirational fiction (open to all forms of inspirational fiction, not just those that are focused around the Christian faith, for teens and adults).
