Dear Weronika Janczuk,
I’m seeking representation for my YA fantasy novel SIMON’S PARADOX, a teen-ified ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND meets FRANKENSTEIN. You mentioned on your website that you're interested in fresh fantasy and books with a very strong voice, and I wondered if my novel might be a good fit with you.
Seventeen-year-old Alice has a supernatural problem, and it has nothing to do with vampires. [Removed sentence with spoiler.] Side effects include: uncontrollable ability to sap the life out of anyone in reach—sometimes with lethal consequences—and a friend list permanently stuck at zero. Anytime a miracle wants to come along, that would be just peachy.
When her (really screwed up) miracle finally arrives, she awakens in an eerily familiar parallel version of colonial America where bloodthirsty magic is as conventional as afternoon tea. She meets Damien, a bandit on the run from a twisted organization of magic devotees called the Scholars, and discovers two things: life-sucking powers plus first love equals one big mess, and the Scholars are keener on capturing her than Damien. [Rest removed due to connection with earlier spoiler.]
SIMON’S PARADOX, my first novel, is complete at approximately 101,000 words. Thanks so much for your time and consideration.
