Jules Devito (JulesKD on QT) has signed with agent Caitlin McDonald of Donald Maass Literary Agency.
I am seeking representation for my adult SciFi novel BLUESHIFT, in which a brain-injured teacher in an alternate-history 1920s travels back in time to prevent a despot from becoming a technological god.
Leander Forest has just made the biggest mistake of his life. A physics professor with the ability to “blueshift,” he bends the fabric of the universe and ends up stranded in the 1600s - right before the Cataclysm that tore a rift in the fabric of space-time. In a nightmare version of his world's past, reanimated corpses walk the streets, powered by crude batteries. Zealots predict the coming of the god Rakanar, imprisoning non-believers. They hunt Leander, striking him with a lethal plague that affects only those who don't worship their deity. If he doesn’t find where and when in space-time Rakanar is lying in wait, Leander—and his entire reality--will be erased from the continuum.
BLUESHIFT is complete at 94,000 words, and will appeal to fans of Ursula K LeGuin's LATHE OF HEAVEN, and Roger Zelazny's LORD OF LIGHT. I have had several short stories published through HitRECord, including one that was featured on Joseph Gordon Levitt’s “HitRECord on TV.” You can find me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/JulesKDevito
I've followed your Tumblr and Twitter for a long time and I find it very helpful (and fun!) I'm also still active in many fandoms, old and new. You've mentioned your interest in representing novels with diverse casts and LGBTQ characters; as this is important to me, as well, I thought you might be interested in this manuscript. I've pasted a synopsis and the first three chapters in the body of this email. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.
