About Brittany: Jordy Albert is a literary agent and co-founder of The Booker Albert Literary Agency. She holds a B.A. in English from Pennsylvania State University, and a M.A. from Millersville University of Pennsylvania. She has worked with Marisa Corvisiero during her time at the L. Perkins Agency and the Corvisiero Literary Agency.
She is Seeking: Jordy is looking for fun, witty middle-grade, and young adult contemporary, science fiction, and fantasy (romance is a plus). She’s also looking for smart, sexy contemporary and historical romance (Jordy definitely has a soft spot for a fantastic Regency). She’s drawn to strong, intelligent characters (snarky, but still likable). Please note that while it isn’t necessarily a deal breaker, she tends to shy away from novels with trigger topics, such as suicide and any type of abuse.
Jordy is not accepting picture books, nonfiction, or screenplays.
How to Submit: Please send your query and the first ten pages of your novel to email@example.com. Do not send as an attachment.
