N is for Negovetich
Today I want to introduce to you Sarah Negovetich, my agent. Don’t worry, she’s fully aware that no one knows how to pronounce her last name, and she's okay with that. :)
Sarah and I have known each other for a little over a year, as we are both bloggers and my first introduction to her was through her blog, but we’ve had a professional relationship since February this year.
Sarah works for the Corvisiero Literary Agency, which is based in New York, but she lives in Texas. Her background is in Marketing and she uses her experience to assist Corvisiero authors, like myself, with platform building and book promotion.
Sarah is an author herself. Her book is titled Rite of Rejection, and interestingly enough – it’s self-published. She divides her time between writing YA books that her husband won’t read and working with amazing authors as an agent at Corvisiero Literary Agency. Her life’s goal is to be only a mildly embarrassing mom when her kids hit their teens.
Sarah is currently only accepting MG and YA fiction manuscripts. She is open to any genre within those age groups, but prefers speculative fiction. Contemporary is not her favorite, but she will look at it. She is not interested in seeing poetry, novels in verse, short stories/novellas or anything focused on saving the environment (she's all for recycling, but doesn't want to represent it).
Together, Sarah and I are working to bring my YA novel MOVING FEAR to a bookstore near you. Needless to say…she’s one of my favorite people! :)
