What We’re Looking for in 2010

As promised, here’s a wish list of the sorts of projects we’d like to see this year.

On the nonfiction front we would prefer to receive narrative nonfiction in the fields of popular science, politics, and contemporary issues. Authors we currently represent in these areas include Linda McQuaig, whose latest book is THE TROUBLE WITH BILLIONAIRES; Derek Lundy, who’s recently written a memoir about his motorcycle ride along America’s two borders; Jessa Gamble and her book on circadian rhythms and how they affect our day-to-day lives; and Timothy Caulfield, Canada Research Chair in Health Law & Policy, who has written a brilliant analysis of the relationship between the media and scientific research.

In terms of fiction we would love to receive commercial fiction of all types but in particular, impeccably crafted crime/legal thrillers set in Canada.

We are also actively looking for genre fiction right now, but not hard SF or epic fantasy. Urban fantasy, paranormal (YA or adult), and commercial novels that borrow science fiction or fantasy tropes, are preferred.

Please send all genre fiction queries directly to me at monica@mcdermidagency.com. All other queries may be sent to info@mcdermidagency.com.
