I’m the new ottoman at Red Sofa Literary. I’m looking for books that entertain, educate, and engage readers — plus any other “e” verb that fits.
My current wish list:
Adult: Nonfiction humor with a strong platform (no dating memoirs).
Adult: Humorous fiction.
Middle-grade with a great voice–especially funny and/or spooky.
Adult/MG: History with a commercial hook. No 20th-century topic pitches, please.
Nonfiction that walks on the weird side — all age groups.
Adult: Mystery with a humorous bent.
Unless specified above, I am not looking for: YA, fantasy, sci-fi, short stories, thrillers, memoirs, or screenplays.
To query, please send a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If I would like to see more, I will request the first three chapters of your manuscript or a finished book proposal. Good luck!
