Last week I saw a notice from literary agent Jill Corcoran. After 4 years with the Herman Agency, she is opening the Jill Corcoran Literary Agency.
My ears always perk up when I see something with Jill’s name attached because she is the agent of my writing pal Kelly Milner Halls and the fabulous Martha Alderson (Plot Whisperer). Take a look at the photo on Corcoran’s site and you’re going to see books that you recognize, books that make you go Oooooo.
At this point, Corcoran is not taking any submissions, but I remain hopeful. After all, in this day and age when so many people preach gloom and doom for the publishing industry, I’m encouraged when a talented agent like Corcoran strikes out on her own and also when I see books on her table that have met with amazing success.
