Janet Reid is a literary agent with JetReid Literary. She says: “I am a literary agent in New York City. I keep a blog at JetReidLiterary.blogspot com that answers questions from writers and allows me to rant on things that drive me crazy in publishing and reasons I love my job and the city.
I also run QueryShark.blogspot.com a blog that posts (with permission) and critiques queries and revisions from writers. To submit a query click on the link “how to submit a query to the shark.” It’s all volunteer.
My clients include New York Times bestselling Patrick Lee (The Breach series and RUNNER); Jeff Somers (WE ARE NOT GOOD PEOPLE;) Laird Barron, the multiple-award winning author of most recently THE BEAUTIFUL THING THAT AWAITS US ALL; Dana Haynes; Lee Goodman; Terry Shames; and Phillip DePoy.
You can subscribe to my newsletter about clients here.
My list is largely crime novels and thrillers, and narrative non-fiction in history and biography.
I am a member of AAR; Sisters in Crime; Mystery Writers of America (NYC chapter); International Thriller Writers; the Organization of American Historians; the American Historical Associaton; the Civil War Roundtable of NYC; the Womens’ National Book Association (NYC chapter); Biographers International Organization; and the Authors Guild.
I live in Brooklyn and currently tormenting myself by painting my apartment. Yes, 27 color samples later, it’s almost done.”
