Welcome to my new website! Thank you to my aunt for making it look pretty for me. If you have any website needs, check her out at http://www.lizmsolutions.com/home/ .
Let me start off by introducing myself. I’m Tia Mele, junior agent and assistant at Talcott Notch Literary Services. I started at TN as an intern when I was a senior in college and they just couldn’t get rid of me! I’m so lucky to have found a home with some incredible women from whom I’ve learned so much about publishing and life.
As an assistant, I take care of queries, manuscript submissions, sending out royalty statements, mailing contracts, etc. for the agency. It definitely keeps me busy!
As an agent, I work on my own query inbox as well as sending my clients’ work out on submission. Again, it keeps me busy!
I’m actively seeking more clients. I currently only represent middle grade, young adult, romance, women’s fiction, and select non-fiction projects. Check out my MSWL for more specifics: https://www.manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/tia-mele/
When I’m not reading submissions, you can probably find me at a baseball game or watching football, depending on the season. I also recently discovered a love for line dancing. My dogs and my rabbit are my best friends, and we hang out frequently. I love going on hikes and hanging out with my friends (the pet and human varieties). All of these things tend to seep into my professional life, so if your book includes any of my hobbies or interests, please send it to me. I’d love to read it!
I’m excited to use this space to give query tips, writing advice, and talk about life in general. Keep an eye out for regular blog posts!
Thanks for checking out my website. Come back soon!
