Get to Know a Literary Scout in Attendance: Brittany Smith of Metamorphosis Literary

Screen Shot 2019-12-21 at 2.59.47 PMBrittany Smith is a literary scout for Metamorphosis Literary. At the 2020 KY conference, she will be taking pitches on behalf of several of her co-agents (Amy Brewer, Patty Carothers, and Erica Christensen).

She is taking pitches for:

  • romance of all kinds; if your plot revolves around love or angst or both, that’s a good thing. Also looking for general/mainstream fiction, LGBTQ+, women’s fiction, book club reads, and quirky humor.
  • nonfiction, graphic novels, children’s book illustrators.
  • upper young adult, new adult and adult romance in most subgenres, ranging from clean/sweet to high heat in any pairings. Also seeks mysteries and thrillers (bonus points for cozy mysteries and psychological thrillers). Also, picture books with diverse characters that bring valuable lessons to children in an entertaining and lighthearted way.

For as long as she can remember, Brittany has had a book in hand and story ideas whirling in her mind. A voracious reader and lover of ice cream, she often dreams of owning a personal library to rival Belle’s. A former mental health counselor, Brittany is currently working on a nonfiction book and preparing to launch her blog Real Life Real Well. “A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.” ~ Madeleine L’Engle
