On GEARBREAKERS, GODSLAYERS, & A Little Zoe’s Precocious Genie

The unfolding of my return to agenting, this September, confirms a stunning trinity, of a kind — many years ago, when I first entered the world of book publishing as an eighteen-year-old, genie and precocious in intent and more, I had the great luck of working with marvelous writers, agents, and editors, unto published authors, communities, conferences, and more.

In those early years, I had the great love of helping Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Max Gladstone find his home with David Hartwell at Tor (may this giant of a man rest in peace), beginning the launch of a career that I hope endures him forever. Some years later, given the passage into eternal life of a mother, a broken system among some editors who refused to launch a mini, and a drink over a bar that caused an uproar, I elected to scaffold gently out of an industry that has showed some degree of abuse. I came back once, and now twice, for an end.

In 2018, post-resigning from a non-profit career that I had for five years endured, I came back into the tumble, and was thrilled to place a parallel to Max, a parallel in some form but yet not, a distant one in many dimensions — little Zoe Hana Mikuta’s GEARBREAKERS, a tale of two gals over deities in town, into 2022’s GODSLAYERS.

Where GEARBREAKERS was expected to publish in April, it debuted this summer, and is off to a genius start, and when fortune took its fall, and some sickness entered my life, I was overjoyed that, at least for now (eh, eh, oh? unto battles and wars!) the beautiful Laura Rennert took over for this soul.

This industry is magic, genius, ever-innovative, and ever-abeatin’, and I’m so happy to be back, to network in some greats, forevermore. I promise.

Check out what Max has, over the years, been up to: as a 2011 start, a 2012 publication, into a 2021-2022+ renewal (LAST EXIT, into Weronika’s last entry, to stick around until time ends) brings forward this gift of a soul of a man, who from Yale into China into Weronika’s heart, ever-once-fell. Cheers to Zoe, to Max, and to all the mechas out there.

Be sure to check out the one whom they have acknowledged.

An agent for life,

Dear Friends, Foes, Writers, & More:

2019 brought on sudden, unexpected, and extended illness, of a form, then Covid came about — and, during this time, I was unable to work. It’s with great joy that, weeks, months, and years later, I’m jumping back into the game, in order to bring about some glories, some beauties, some genius genies, and more.

Everything from the 2019-2021 period has been deleted. Reach out again if you didn’t hear back.

As of this morning, I’m open to queries. Send moi more!

Cheers,
