Welcome Katie Bucklein!

I’m excited to introduce my new client, Katie Bucklein!

I’ve been searching for a fantasy rom-com for ages and I finally found one! Katie’s story is great for fans for RED, WHITE, AND ROYAL BLUE and CARRY ON!

You’ll love WORK OF ART if you like:

  • Nonbinary rep.
  • Ex-best friends to lovers
  • “Oops, I raised the dead.”
  • Grounded fantasy in an alternate USA
  • Awesome sibling relationships

Katie Bucklein started writing at the age of twelve when a friend challenged her to a dare: who could finish writing a novel first? Spoiler alert: Katie won, and has since written contemporary, historical fiction, and dystopian, but found romance and fantasy to be her true love. The middle child of five, she grew up in California, went to high school in Arizona, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree for history in Idaho. Now pursuing a Master’s degree, she spends her days spelunking in museum basements and her nights writing, fueled by music and insomnia.

Welcome Arielle Guevara!

I’m excited to introduce my new client, Arielle Guevara!

Isn’t Arielle’s artwork beautiful! She has a wonderful story she is currently working on that I’m so excited to read. I adore her passion for the environment and the ocean that she builds into her art and stories.

Arielle Guevara is an illustrator and character designer. Born and raised in the Philippines, she graduated with a BFA in Animation from Savannah College of Art and Design. She is very passionate about sharing her Filipino culture and her advocacy for environmental conservation through her art.

When she isn’t drawing, Arielle enjoys a good iced coffee, listening to 80s music and freaking out over french bulldogs. She also co-hosts the podcast Hey, Hire Us where she interviews her artist friends and hypes them up to get hired.

Welcome Brandi Payne!

Brandi Payne is a designer, illustrator, and cartoonist from the Appalachian Mountains who loves whimsical stories, goofy characters, and colorful worlds. She draws inspiration from old JRPGs and late nights spent making up stories with her sister and friends. Brandi has a Bachelors in Graphic Design from Maryville College but has spent her entire life scribbling comics wherever they’ll fit

Welcome Viane Londoño!

I’m excited to introduce my new client, Viane Londoño!

I absolutely love Viane’s work. They have such a wonderful and versatile style, so when I reached out to them and learned they were also writing a graphic novel based on their mothers hometown stories about brujas in Colombia, I knew I had to sign them.

Viane Londoño is a Colombian-Costa Rican illustrator and comic artist. They are the author/illustrator of the webcomic From The After World, and they run the @DisabledArtists Collective. They currently live in San Diego, California, with a tuxedo cat who has a penchant for eating plants.

Welcome Natasha Siegel!

I’m excited to introduce my new client, Natasha Siegel!

I’ve always been a fan of historical fiction, but it takes a unique author to make me fall in love with the book. I’d say I’m pretty picky, but Natasha had me falling all over her queer kings and writing. It’s so lovely, and fans of Madeline Miller will fall in love too.

You’ll love SOLOMON’S CROWN if you like:

  • Queer historical figures
  • Beautiful literary writing
  • Characters that use logic over heart
  • Characters that are all heart
  • Political rivals to lovers, but will always be political rivals

Natasha Siegel is a British-American author of historical novels. Her poetry has won accolades from Foyle’s and the University of Oxford. She is particularly interested in exploring underrepresented historical voices, particularly those of the LGBTQ+ and Jewish community. She splits her time between Copenhagen and London, where she lives with her lurcher and an endless supply of history books.
