Annie Bomke is a literary agent with over a decade of experience in the publishing industry. She represents a wide range of projects—from hard-nosed business books to otherworldly historical novels. Annie has loved the publishing industry since internship at Zoetrope: All-Story, a literary magazine founded by Francis Ford Coppola.

Pitch Preferences: She is looking for adult and YA fiction and nonfiction, including commercial and literary fiction, upmarket fiction, mysteries (from hilarious cozies to gritty police procedurals and everything in between), historical fiction, magical realism, women’s fiction, psychological thrillers/suspense, literary/psychological horror, self-help, business, health/diet, cookbooks, memoir, relationships, current events, true crime, psychology, prescriptive nonfiction, and narrative nonfiction. She’s a sucker for locked-room mysteries, books set in the Victorian era, books about evil children, and unreliable narrators. In any genre, she is looking for character-driven stories and is especially interested in books that feature diverse characters.
