Double posting today, but we always have a full week at Musetracks.
Becky Vinter is out guest agent this month for Agent Shop!!!
Check her out here
Becky’s eclectic tastes span the whole spectrum of women’s fiction, from literary to “bookclub” to romance of all subgenres. She is also in the market for voice-driven YA fiction, particularly stories with a strong romantic or suspenseful hook. In nonfiction, she is looking for both prescriptive and narrative nonfiction on the topics of food, travel, spirituality, pop culture, health and wellness, as well as select memoir. Some of her favorite recent reads include Ann Patchett’s State of Wonder, Tana French’s Faithful Place, Helen Simonson’s Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, and Dave Egger’s Zeitoun.
Becky began her career in publishing at the Feminist Press in 2006 before moving to NAL/Penguin, where she acquired and edited commercial women’s fiction. She joined FinePrint in 2011. Becky grew up in London and earned her BA in English Literature from the University of Leeds. She now lives in Brooklyn.
