Bits and Pieces from Reno

Here are some bits and pieces I've heard about chick/lady/hen lit in Reno:

  1. RDI is focusing on the 18-34 market. Manuscripts with heroines 35+ are being sent to NEXT and NEXT is actively buying.
  2. Pocket is looking for chick lit novels about women who are dealing with today's issues for a broader 30- to 40-something market.
  3. Tor is open to manuscripts with "mature" chicks.

And as an addendum, I just read something about Avon having a line for the 40+. I may need to do a little more research but it looks to me, ladies, that hen lit is just coming into its own. I'm very excited about it.

    Thanks for sharing, Kathy. I remember submitting a query to Avon about a year ago for another book. If you hear of what this new line is, post it, okay? Sounds interesting for this second one I'm shopping around.
