- @jdhowa2 I expect it would be less fun after a while, but still.
- @jdhowa2 how much money would I have to pay you to quit your job and just tweet from the state fair from now on?
Courtney is currently seeking women’s fiction, romance, and historical novels, as well as nonfiction projects on unusual topics, humor, pop culture, and lifestyle books. For nonfiction, a strong platform and excellent credentials are a must.
She represents a limited number of children’s book authors, and is especially drawn to middle-grade and YA fiction with voices that jump off the page. She is not currently seeking new picture book manuscripts.
While she prefers that authors query about one project at a time, Courtney is passionate about growing writers’ careers, and is always looking for clients who feel that they have a lot of great stories to share with the world.
Courtney began her career in publishing at Random House, where she spent a number of years in subsidiary rights sales and in contracts before joining Sanford J. Greenburger Associates in 2005. A member of the Romance Writers of America, she works closely with authors to help them reach their full creative and commercial potential.
Courtney holds a B.A. in Literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz and a M.A. in English from The Johns Hopkins University. She lives with her family in Southern California and travels frequently for meetings and conferences. She strongly prefers to receive submissions via e-mail at cmiller [at] sjga [dot] com.
PLEASE NOTE: Courtney does not represent screenplays.
For fiction: please include a brief synopsis (no more than five pages) and the first three chapters of your manuscript with your query.
For nonfiction: please attach a book proposal and a C.V. or author bio to your query.
