Welcome to Inside the Publishing World Wednesday. Today I am spotlighting Natalie Grazian from Martin Literary Management.
Who is Natalie Grazian?
Martin Literary Management. She has a BA in English and Minor in Spanish from Santa Clara University. Upon graduating, she worked as a sales representative for W. W. Norton & Co. and interned for two literary agencies, including Martin Literary & Media Management. For two years, Natalie was the Fiction Editor of The Santa Clara Review, the oldest literary magazine on the West Coast.
What is she looking for?
Natalie is eager to build her adult fiction list. She is currently accepting queries for commercial, upmarket, and literary adult fiction. Natalie would love it if you sent her contemporary fantasy (in the vein of Lev Grossman’s The Magicians). She’s drawn to dark comedy that still carries a beating heart—because at the end of the day, she turns to books to find humanity. She is highly interested in reimagined myths and fairytales from different cultures, historical fiction, and a good quest narrative in any genre. More than anything, she looks for complex characters who make the unrelatable relatable, and for a smart, distinctive narrative voice. At this time, she’s not seeking military thrillers, sports stories, or romance novels.
How to Query-
Natalie Grazian accepts queries for Adult Fiction only.
She’s especially interested in upmarket book club fiction; mainstream fiction with a speculative twist; smart, witty women's fiction; thought-provoking, literary page-turners; psychological suspense; retellings of myths and classics; coming-of-age stories; and romantic comedies.
