  • You are a writer looking for a literary agent for their romance novel
  • You are curious about how a literary agent chooses romance novels for representation


Romance novels represent a profitable, exciting and artistic field of publishing. Readers are voracious, publishing houses are acquiring and authors are making money. Yet, writing a romance novel can be intimidating and pursuing publication even more so.

Sara represents New York Times and USA Today bestselling romance authors and discusses the objective and subjective elements of writing these books as well as the specific steps an author can take to pursue publication.

Publishing is subjective? Yes, but there are objective aspects of craft needed to prepare a romance novel for its readers.

Pursuing publication is confusing? Absolutely, but there are reliable steps an author can take to find a literary agent or publisher, vet that literary agent or publisher, write and submit queries, and/or pursue self-publishing.

In this presentation, Sara tackles romance novels from both the writing/art angle and the publishing/business angle.


  • How to review your own manuscript for the objective elements needed in a romance novel
  • How important is craft in wooing readers
  • Places to pick up hints as to agents' and editors' subjective preferences
  • How to make a list of literary agents and/or publishers for your book
  • How to vet those literary agents and/or publishers
  • Successful query tips
  • A checklist for evaluating your publication options (literary agent, publisher, self-publishing)
