Signs of spring are appearing in the blossoming trees and climbing temperatures, and we are more than ready to leave what seemed like the chilliest winter ever behind. In a couple of weeks, a few of our agents are fleeing to even warmer temps out west to attend the RT BookLovers Convention in LA. In the news section, you'll find a list of the panels we're on, so make sure to check us out if you're going to be in the area.

March has proved to be a busy and exciting month so far. We were thrilled to learn that Rob Thurman's sixth Cal Leandros novel, BLACKOUT, debuted at #19 on the New York Times mass market list. We also had another uber successful Speed Date competition with well over 400 aspiring authors vying to participate

in the contest for Knight Agency representation. This time our Vice President of Sales, Pamela Harty, joined her sister and fellow agent Deidre Knight to help with the judging. The two whittled 125 participants down to three talented finalists -- Bob Martinez, Rhea Ference and Brandy Shockley. Stay tuned to our blog for the winner's announcement on March 28th.

Last, but certainly not least, we want to invite you to the first chat of the spring season with Katherine Garbera, a prolific romance author with more than 50 novels under her belt. We are celebrating her sizzling Miami Nights series with a chat event that's sure to be great fun and super informative this Thursday, March 24th @ 9pm ET.

The Knight Post - Interview with Katherine Garbera
Katherine Garbera

USA Today bestselling author Katherine Garbera figured out she wanted to be a writer early on, but her career in the world of imagination began at the Walt Disney World Company rather than publishing. A jack of all trades, she did everything from being a hostess on It's a Small World to a production page on the New Mickey Mouse Club. Now, as the author of numerous novels, she is delighted to be able to share the inner workings of her own imagination with her readers.

TKA: As the author of more than 50 books, you seem to have no shortage of new ideas. Where do you look for inspiration for your stories?

KATHERINE: I find inspiration in everything. I read a bunch of different magazines each month and am addicted to CNN. I find that the things I like often inspire the ideas I come up with.

TKA: In what ways did your Floridian upbringing figure into the storyline of the Miami Nights series?

KATHERINE:
I was born in Miami and I was lonely for my home state when I proposed the series to my editor. I wanted a hip and happening town with a lot of celebs and Miami seemed perfect.

TKA: The first book in the series, TAMING THE VIP PLAYBOY (TTVP), spotlights ex-baseball player Nate Stern, who owns a popular Latin nightclub with his two brothers. He falls for one of his employees, dance instructor Jen Miller. What do you think workplace romance is such a lure for readers?

KATHERINE:
I love a boss/secretary romance. I think I have to blame that the early Harlequin books I read when I was in seventh grade. I just loved the power play of the boss/secretary scenario and how it changes once he falls in love. I think they are a lure for readers because most of us work and spend all of our time at the office and may have meet a past boyfriend or spouse at work.

TKA: What are some of the emotional obstacles Nate, a well-known playboy, faces that prevent him from committing to a serious relationship? What sort of rewards do you receive as a writer through helping a character like him journey through the phases of personal growth?

KATHERINE:
Nate's obstacles are many, but they all stem from the fact that he has taught himself to keep moving on. If he doesn't commit to anyone or anything than he can't be hurt when it ends. And he knows that everything ends. For me, helping him through the struggles of accepting that Jen is more than the "girl for now" is rewarding because it reassures me that people can grow.

 

TKA: The heroine of TTVP, Jen, is a professional dancer who once performed on the national circuit. One of the biggest reality TV crazes right now is dancing-themed shows, such as Dancing with the Stars. Did the prominence of those types of shows inspire Jen’s character at all? Why do you think people are so captivated by dancers in general, and do you have any dance experience yourself?

KATHERINE:
I love Dancing with the Stars and it was part of my inspiration for writing TTVP. I'm captivated by the drama behind the scenes of the show and I think that is why so many people tune in and watch it. I also love the beauty and strength needed for dancing. I have no professional dance experience except on the dance floor at the Harlequin party every summer! And of course my little girl dreams of being a prima ballerina.

Dancing With the Stars
 

TKA: The arc for Miami Nights includes not only Nate’s story, but his brothers Justin and Cam as well. What were some of the differences in the brothers’ personalities and the dynamics of their individual situations that made the subsequent Miami Nights books, SEDCUCING HIS OPPOSITION and REUNITED…WITH CHILD, fresh and exciting to write?

KATHERINE:
I'm the oldest of three sisters who are very close in age, so the dynamics of siblings and their relationships with each other was something that I am very familiar with. The differences in the Stern brothers are marked, each of them are very different. Cam is the oldest and feels the mantel of responsibility when their parents died young. Justin is the middle child, bookish smart and cunning and then Nate is the baby and was indulged all of his life, he took his ability playing baseball and turned it into a career.

TKA: What professional advice would you give to an aspiring author specifically interested in writing for Harlequin?

KATHERINE:
Read whatever line you are interested in writing for so you know what is being published. Listen to what editors say when they tell you what they are looking for, and, if at all possible, don’t' be emotional about your work and make the changes you are asked for. I also have found it helps to never say no. Everyone wants to work with an agreeable person!

TKA: What are some of your upcoming projects?

KATHERINE:
After the Miami Nights series, I have THE REBEL TYCOON RETURNS in August, which is part of the Texas Cattleman's Club. In 2012, I'm launching a new series about a reality TV matchmaking service.

You Ought To Know: From the Desk of Nephele Tempest

Nephele Tempest

Word on the Street

Thanks to technology, you no longer need to work in New York to be a literary agent. For years now, many of us have done business from every corner of the country—and world—with a little help from the internet, smart phones, and unlimited long-distance plans. But most major publishers continue to call the Big Apple home, so we at The Knight Agency make periodic pilgrimages in order to meet with editors face to face. Earlier this month, I did a quick jaunt along with Elaine Spencer, and now I’m here to share with all of you.

Our New York trips tend to be a bit of a whirlwind. Though it’s tempting to succumb to the lure of all the city has to offer—shopping, theater, etc.—we’re there to work and so we try to pack as many appointments into our time as we possibly can. On this particular trip, we arrived late Wednesday morning and left at noon on Friday, and met with approximately a dozen editors. The goal is always to mix it up, meet some new editors and learn what they’d like for their lists, as well as touching base with editors with whom we already work. On this trip, we chatted with people from Berkley, NAL, Viking Children’s, Thomas Dunne/St. Martin’s, Disney/Hyperion, Simon Pulse, Simon & Schuster Children’s Books and HarperTeen. We heard about

a lot of great upcoming titles and what recent purchases have these editors truly excited, saw some fun cover art (and were sworn to secrecy), and discussed the industry and all its ongoing changes. But most vital to our own efforts—and the ultimate purpose of our meetings—we got an idea of what these editors are looking for in the way of submissions.

“Trend” is a word that gets thrown around a lot in publishing. Everyone always asks where the market is going, what the next hot genre will be, or where things are trending. The truth is, short of getting your hands on a really fabulous crystal ball, you won’t get a definitive answer. Most trends are only recognizable in hindsight, and there are no guarantees for the future. But editors still know what they’re looking for—and what they’re tired of seeing. So here is what we heard, much of which meshed with our own feelings when it comes to what we want as agents:

New York City Aerial
 

Virtually everyone is tired of vampires. This goes for young adult and adult fiction, though there’s more wiggle room with literary imprints, given that there’s been far less of a glut there.

Paranormal/fantasy is still hot, but less creatures, more “creepy.” In young adult, the more mysterious paranormal books are gaining traction while vamps and werewolves are fading. That doesn’t mean creatures aren’t still selling, but it’s likely that new authors will find it very difficult to break out with these types of books since established writers are filling the slots. Same for paranormal romance, where they’re still looking for something different.

Urban fantasy is still popular, but the market is getting tight. This is particularly true of urban fantasy romance and straight urban fantasy, where the field is extremely crowded. Editors want something that really jumps out as very different or special. In young adult, urban fantasy continues to be popular, but again—something different—and editors are looking for strong emotions and distinct characters.

 

Dystopian continues to grow, but editors want variety, especially in young adult. They’re seeing a lot of “the next Hunger Games,” when there are so many different ways to create a dystopian society.

Contemporary young adult needs a strong hook. Editors really aren’t interested in the more traditional, sweet young adult novels that address simple issues of growing up. They want something much more dynamic, tense, and driven.

Most editors still looking for dark, edgy, emotional stories in genre. Some would like lighter fare, both in romance and young adult, but it continues to be a harder sell and the projects need to be special and fresh.

Character-driven, emotional stories still popular in women’s fiction. Editors are still looking for strong characters, relatable emotions and a sense of place/atmosphere. Also, stories about women finding their own place in the world. Historical women’s fiction continues to be popular, as well.

Trends aside, editors (and editorial boards) are getting tougher to please. In such a tight market, they are looking for work that needs less rewriting, stories that are outstanding, and writers who are committed to helping to market their books. But the good news? They’re dying to find it. Every editor we spoke with is still passionate about books, publishing, and the writers on their lists.

Off the Record with Lucienne Diver

Lucienne Diver spent several amazing days exploring Greece with her husband and son. The globetrotting agent visited the Parthenon and the Theatre of Dionysus, among other awe-inspiring sites. She's sharing tons of pictures and trip details on her personal blog -- Varkat. Greece at Night

The Watercooler

The Watercooler

Each month, we list what our agents are currently looking for and/or a particular type of book they've heard editors are asking to see. The watercooler items will be adjusted as agents receive new information or develop new interests. Therefore, some items may be repeated from the previous month's watercooler item if interests have not changed.

Also, pleased be advised that this is not a complete listing of the types of books TKA will represent. For a listing of the types of titles we rep, please visit www.KnightAgency.net.

Deidre Knight: I’m really on a YA reading kick and would love to find some wonderful debut (or established) authors in this category, along with Middle Grade. Additionally, I'm hungering for a fresh romance in the contemporary category, something with a strong series hook. Also, I'm always looking for lyrical-commercial fiction of any kind. Think TIME TRAVELERS WIFE or David Cristafano’s THE GIRL SHE USED TO BE. (Last Update February 2011)

Lucienne Diver: I've got a very full list, so I'm not taking on many new clients at this time. That said, I'd love to find some really wonderful southern women's fiction (with or without a magical realism angle) and a great epic middle-grade series (think in the vein of Rick Riordan, who I love). (Last Update February 2011)

Melissa Jeglinski: I've just finished THE HUNGER GAMES trilogy and would love to see a dystopian YA project. I'd love to also see some historical YA and middle grade projects. I'm always in the market for great romance and women's fiction projects--something a little out of the ordinary would also be welcome.. (Last Update January 2011)

Nephele Tempest: I’m looking for great young adult—particularly something set in the real world as opposed to fantasy/paranormal—with a strong voice and that tackles difficult issues in a realistic, sympathetic way; I’d love some new women’s fiction, again with a strong voice, and not necessarily a romantic story but with strong relationships of all kinds; in romance I’d love some contemporary and romantic suspense. I still love the paranormals but it’s getting very hard to find something fresh and I feel a bit overwhelmed with them all at this point. (Last Update December 2010)

Elaine Spencer: It seems like the Writers Digest “Hot List” queries have finally subsided. If you submitted one and I didn't get to it, please resend according to the guidelines! I'm not changing what I was looking for last month, but I'm going to add to it a bit: high concept romantic suspense, something beyond the typical serial killer on the loose story, great historical romance or historical fiction, (for me, this means pre-1900s), and strong boy-protagonist young adult or middle grade stories, something with a great voice and strong writing, and any compelling women’s fiction, particularly witty commercial stories about women facing life in their mid to late twenties. Also, I would really REALLY love to add a great Harlequin presents author to my line up. I absolutely love the luxe and drama associated with those books.(Last Update December 2010)

Pamela Harty: I am always looking for romance, but in particular romantic suspense and contemporary. I am also interested in women’s commercial fiction. I love my YA authors and would love to see more of this genre. Additionally, I haven’t had many nonfiction queries lately and would like to see more including parenting, self help, motivation and health. (Last Update October 2010)

On a trip to the family cemetery, Martin wanders among the tombstones of his ancestors and discovers a disturbing pattern: when one Martin is born, the previous Martin dies. And---just his luck---Martin's aunt is about to give birth to a baby boy, who will, according to tradition, be named Martin. Martin must find a way to break the curse, but every clue seems to lead to a dead end. And time is running out.
