Well based on that client list she sounds amazing! :D

Natalie Aguirre said...

Thanks for spotlighting Amy. I'm excited because she represents Shannon Hale and Jessica Day George.

K. L. Hallam said...

She and I have the same tastes. Nice. Onto the list you go, Ms. Amy Jameson. Thanks to you both for the interview. :)

I'm with Natalie on that comment. I love who she represents. I was hoping she's be a match for Lupe, but it doesn't sound like it.

Okay, garden, cooking, singing, and reading really great books! We're twinsies, Amy! *wink* (Of course folks run the other way when I start to sing. Hahahaha. The only ones who love my sing songys are my little doggy and my horses.

I am almost ready to query my MG. *gulp* She's on my list. (Even though she takes very few new clients, who knows? Right?) *waving*

Amy sounds like a wonderful agent. Will add her to my list.

I hadn't heard of Amy. So great to know about her and her interests. Thanks to you!

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Honestly, Amy looks way too young to have had so much fun. Best of luck, Amy. Thanks for the introduction, Natalie!

Kimberly Gabriel said...

Thanks for another great spotlight! I love learning more about agents I haven't researched yet.

Lydia Kang said...

Another great spotlight. :)

Thanks for all the info on Amy. You're on my blogroll now, so I'll never miss a post or an update. You rock! :-)

Kristin Lenz said...

Thanks, Casey! I hadn't heard of Amy and her agency before this. I could swear Shannon Hale had a different agent before, but I see she's represented by Amy now. I wonder if she switched, or if I'm just not remembering correctly.

Shannon Hale is represented by Barry Goldblatt. I think Jameson may have represented Hale in her early works, but it is very misleading that she is still pictured on her site.

Middle grade fiction is the best. Not too long like adults books, but not too short and childish like picture books.

And a literary agent career sounds fascinating.
