About the webinar:
Whether it's the bone chilling suspense or a psychological thriller, the twists and turns of a good cozy mystery novel, or the satisfaction of unraveling a page-turning who-done-it, mysteries and suspense novels have fascinated and entertained readers for centuries. Now it's your turn to write and publish your very own mystery, thriller, or suspense.
Learn the ins and outs of the current market and how to successfully conceptualize, construct, and sell your adult, YA or middle grade novel. Find out what publishers are truly looking for, and learn how to craft your pitch and query letter so that your book stands out from the crowd. Find out how the industry has changed in recent years - and what this means for you, your book, and your career.
Andrea Somberg has been a literary agent for over 15 years, representing a wide range of fiction and nonfiction, including mysteries, thrillers, and suspense for the adult, young adult, and middle grade audiences.
