10-Minute Phone Consultation with Agent Karen Grencik
Agent Karen Grencik of Red Fox Literary is offering the following:
- She will provide a 10-minute phone consultation (which may go longer, depending) in which you can ask any questions about children’s publishing and literature.
Note: Karen does not represent illustrators, and so this call will likely work best for writers.
Karen Grencik became a literary agent because of a man she admired. She wanted the world to know his story. In 2001 she accomplished her goal when Double Luck, Memoirs of a Chinese Orphan, written by Lu Chi Fa with Becky White, was published by Holiday House. Double Luck received many awards, and it is still in print in hardcover to this day. Karen’s next sale, George Hogglesberry, Grade School Alien, written by Sarah Wilson, was acquired by a brand-new editor, Abigail Samoun, at Tricycle Press. George Hogglesberry went on to win the coveted Golden Kite Award for Best Picture Book Text in 2003. Many other award-winning titles followed. In February 2011, Karen and Abigail joined forces to open Red Fox Literary, LLC, a boutique agency that specializes in children's books for all ages. Karen, Abi and Red Fox Literary regularly make the Top 10 Children’s Book Agents and Agencies lists each year.
