Writers Digest: Brittany Booker Carter of The Booker Albert Literary Agency

About Brittany: Brittany Booker Carter is a Literary Agent and co-founder of The Booker Albert Literary Agency. She has a B.A in English and a minor in Journalism from The University of Arkansas at Monticello. She has worked with Marisa Corvisiero during her time at the Lori Perkins agency and the Corvisiero Literary Agency.

 

 

She is Seeking: She is looking for novels that keep her up at night and transport her into the pages.

In YA and NA she is looking for well-written contemporary and paranormal romances. In NA she is looking for lots of sexual tension, and a sexy demanding hero never hurt anybody!

As for adult works, she’s looking for witty contemporary, and slow burning friends to lovers romances.

She’s always on the hunt for rich characters and unique plots.

She is a big sucker for happy endings. (She doesn’t represent books without a HEA, they make her sad. She believes every person deserves a Happily-Ever-After. Maybe it’s just the Disney Princess inside?)

She also has a passion for books set in the south. Bring on those big ol’ cowboys, ladies. She’ll take any man with a slow, southern drawl!

How to Submit: Please send your query and the first ten pages of your novel to query@thebookeralbertagency.com. Do not send as an attachment.
