Who: Jessica Sinsheimer with the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency
Here’s a little more about Jessica, in case you don’t already know:
Jessica Sinsheimer has been reading and campaigning for her favorite queries since 2004. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, she went east for Sarah Lawrence College and stayed for the opportunity to read soon-to-be books for a living.
Now an Associate Agent at the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency, she’s developed a reputation for fighting office members to see incoming manuscripts first—and for drinking far too much tea. Her most recent sale is RIPPER, a paranormal/historical YA novel, about a Victorian girl who takes down Jack the Ripper–and its sequel.
Always on the lookout for new writers, she is most excited about finding literary, women’s, and Young Adult fiction, and—on the nonfiction side—psychology, parenting, self-help, cookbooks, memoirs, and works that speak to life in the twenty-first century.
And just like our other April events, this will be a Live Queries Work-through.
If you somehow missed the others, here’s how this works: At a designated time, we’ll open a special thread in our forum, and you guys will be able to post your queries in there–up to 40 queries. Then, during the event, Jessica will go through the queries in the thread the same way she would work through her slush, and give her thoughts on whether she’d request, reject, and why. It’s a lot of fun and a rare opportunity to climb inside her head and see what she really thinks as she reads queries. Trust me, you’ll learn a LOT–even if your query isn’t one of the ones in the batch.*
