Rick Lewis, Literary Manager
SCAM ALERT: If you are contacted by a "Rick Lewis" from Rick@directacquistionsteam.com be warned it is a scam operation! The real Rick Lewis is a literary agent for Martin Literary Management, and he does NOT reach out to authors unsolicited nor does he ever charge authors for any advance services, ever.
Rick Lewis represents speculative fiction (SFFH) authors.
Rick is looking for character-driven stories with genuine emotion and meaning struggles. And maybe a dragon or a spaceship, too. But mostly the genuine and meaningful stuff. He wants you to take him on a journey to a highly imaginative new world that illuminates our own in some significant way.
He is open to queries for Adult and Young Adult novels, as well as graphic novels.
He’s most interested in:
- Epic Fantasy & Space Opera (Classic empire-spanning stuff!)
- Dark Fantasy & Gothic Horror
- Contemporary Fantasy (Especially portal/hidden worlds)
- Paranormal Horror
- Magical Realism
He also loves:
- Stories that celebrate diversity and inclusion
- Miraculous technology gone too far
- Fairytale retellings
He’s very skeptical of vampire and superhero novels, but maybe you can win him over? But he’s not at all interested in cocky, wise-cracking YA protagonists who are cynical and world-weary by the age of 18.
All queries must be submitted through Query Manager.
