With an international business background and following three years as a judge for the CWA’s John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger, owner, Rhian Davies has decided to make her passion her business.
She says, 'Phoenix Lit does not subscribe to the theory that the traditional publishing industry is taking its last breaths following the creation of the ereader and the ebook. Being new, Phoenix Lit aims to be flexible in the changing market in order to take full advantage of opportunities.'
The agency is looking for high-end quality commercial fiction within the crime and thriller genre. Historical novels within the genre will only be considered if they cover the period 1910 to 1980.
They are particularly interested in finding:
- excellent new female authors
