We are absolutely delighted to announce that Tess O’Hara, who heads the editorial team, has signed up with Eve White literary agency with her novel, The Shelter. Sara says: Tess came to Bluepencilagency just over a year ago and fitted into the BPA team instantly. We were lucky to meet each other once when Covid restrictions were eased the first time around. It’s been an interesting year for us all. I loved her novel and felt it was a good moment to put it out there.
Tess says: I am so grateful to Sara Sarre and Christian Livermore at BPA for providing perceptive and very wise feedback on the novel and to Emma Haynes for recommending it to Eve’s agency. She actually sent it to Ludo Cinelli first, and it was encouraging that he passed it on to Eve knowing she was a better fit. Literary agents really do read submissions with care! Eve has such a strong vision for my novel and works with incredible focus and dedication – I’m thrilled to have her representing me.
