Conference Appointment with Pam van Hylckama Vlieg!!

Please find general information on the conference here.

Pam van Hylckama Vlieg (Larsen Pomada Literary Agents)

Interests: "High concept young adult in any genre. Middle grade in these genres: fantasy, science fiction, dystopian, paranormal, literary. Romance in these categories: historical, fantasy, and erotica. New genres:
 commercial science fiction, fantasy, and literary fiction. New Adult in all categories will be considered.

I am now open to submissions in upmarket women’s fiction and historical fiction. I’m looking for books with particularly well-developed characters and strong authorial voice. In historical fiction in particular I am particularly interested in books that bring the setting to life and that maintain balance between historical accuracy and strong plot choices. I am also very interested in mystery, fantasy, and occasionally romance approaches to these genres as well." - Please check the links above for more information.

  1. I feel like a cheat b/c I may have won the other appointment with Pam, but there's a bit of rule debate there, so $9.

    I can at least help the bidding progress.

  2. $15 Hi Sarah! Have you gotten a confirmation yet?

  3. Just saw a tweet from Cupid and the bid after 27 can be $3

  4. Ahh--I recognize this tactic--the old, Mexican standoff :)

  5. Yes, Cupid actually wrote a little bit about that at the tail end of our discussion (on Pam's other appointment).

    Good luck!

  6. Also, NOW I'm able to just straight up enter comments. When I was bidding, I had to do the capcha thing every time.

    If it makes you feel better, I had to combat capcha to get my $30 bid in.

  7. Maybe she took the captcha off because I haven't had to use it this time.

    1. Yes, I did. I always forgot to take it off for things like this.

      If I leave it off, the spam attacks! It's insane! :)

  8. $30

  9. I think we're allowed to bid against ourselves? Otherwise nobody would ever bid the $27, right? ;)

  10. Yes. You can bid against yourself on the last bid. Cupid confirmed that in the other Pam van Hylckama Vlieg post.

  11. Winner!! Ronni Arno Blaisdell!!!
