Alyssa Roat is a literary agent with CYLE Literary Elite.
She is seeking:
- any kind of young adult (but especially fantasy and speculative)
- middle grade fiction (any kind)
- women’s fiction
- contemporary fiction
- unique historical fiction
- sometimes children’s picture books (more likely with nonfiction or STEM elements)
- some nonfiction (large platform only)
- occasional Christian titles
- a rare thriller/mystery/suspense
She does not want to receive Western, horror, or erotica.
“I’m especially interested in anything with these elements: Southwestern settings; non-western contemporary, fantasy, and historical settings; Amish fiction; lesser-known mythologies and mythological creatures; humor.”
Hailing from Tucson, Arizona, Alyssa’s love of words blossomed while she spent her days hiding from the scorching desert sun in dim rooms with thick books. She emerged from her dark, bookish cave to attend college, where her articles were featured in several publications. Now, she is often found writing and editing in the much cooler sunlight of the Midwest.
