  1. Dear Sanchari,
    By way of introduction, I’m an agent at Folio Literary Management, who specializes in representing literary fiction, upmarket commercial fiction, narrative non-fiction, and select YA. If you don’t already have representation, I’d welcome the opportunity to hear more about your novel-in-progress, BLOOD RED SKY.
    A few of the writers I represent are Daniel Levine, author of the New York Times Editor’s Choice book Hyde (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt); Iowa Writers’ Workshop graduate Stacy Tintocalis; historical novelist Jennifer Laam (The Secret Daughter of the Tsar, St. Martin’s Press); Time Magazine contributor and former Newsweek correspondent Carla Power (If the Oceans were Ink, Henry Holt; forthcoming); and Huffington Post writer and Dad blogger Brian Gresko (When I First Held You: 22 Critically Acclaimed Writers Talk about the Triumphs, Challenges, and Transformative Experience of Fatherhood, Berkley/Penguin).
    Please be in touch!

    All best,
