We are SO happy to add Bri Johnson to the HG Literary team. We've known and admired her for many years--now we are excited to work with her!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Agent Brianne Johnson Joins HG Literary

New York, May19, 2021

Literary Agent Brianne Johnson has joined HG Literary, bringing her best-selling list of authors including Wesley King (OCDaniel, The Wizenard series), Joya Goffney, (Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry), Kate Scelsa (Fans of the Impossible Life) Edgar-nominated Greg Howard (The Whispers), Heather Fawcett (Even the Darkest Stars) and Camilla Bruce (You Let Me In).

“I am deeply grateful for my fourteen years at Writers House, which was my first “career home” after half a decade spent working at independent bookstores. I’ve long admired the work that Josh, Carrie, and the entire HG Lit team has been doing for years. This move feels very right for me, and for my clients. I am absolutely thrilled,” said Johnson, who had been with Writers House since 2007.

“Bri’s impeccable taste, fantastic list, and strength in the YA market really round out our Children’s division,” said HGL Partner Carrie Hannigan. “We are delighted to welcome her to HG Literary.”

HG Literary, led by partners Carrie Hannigan and Josh Getzler, represents a broad range of adult and children’s book authors, including Brit Bennett (The Vanishing Half), Vashti Harrison (Little Leaders), S.A. Cosby (Blacktop Wasteland), Chris Grabenstein (Mr. Lemoncello’s Library), and Rev. Al Sharpton (Rise Up).

We are thrilled to announce that Carrie Hannigan and Josh Getzler are now co-representing the amazing Chris Grabenstein, multiple New York Times Bestselling author of the Mr. Lemoncello's Library Series, Shine, and the Treasure Hunters and Max Einstein books with James Patterson. Very, very happy to welcome Chris into the HG Lit family!

And right off the bat, we have a promotion. If you (or your kid(s)) have nothing going on this Thursday, March 26, between 2 and 3 PM, Chris will be featured in a "Facebook Live" event. Come join and hang out with Chris!

To our clients, colleagues, and friends:

As of this Monday, March 16, HG Literary will be moving to a virtual office, with our agents working from home as a precautionary measure until further notice.

Please bear with us if things are a bit out of sorts for a little while, as we adjust to working from home and we put a few systems in place. But we are all healthy and working, and will be performing all of our usual jobs. Just, you know, in sweats.

Let’s hope this pandemic comes under control quickly, and with as little further disruption and illness as possible. We are in some uncharted territory here, and we really appreciate everyone’s patience and good will.

Now wash your hands!!!

Carrie Hannigan, Josh Getzler, and everyone at HG Literary.

03/03/2020

Very disappointed to announce that HG Literary won’t be attending next week’s London Book Fair. The combination of health risks to our attendees from Coronavirus and the number of co-agents and publishers not attending made us determine that we’d be better served staying home. We look forward to seeing everyone in Frankfurt in October (and on the children’s book side, in Bologna in May, assuming it takes place).

In the meantime, stay healthy and wash your hands!!!

A Trace of Deceit: A Novel

Huge Happy #PublicationDay to Karen Odden on the release of A Trace of Deceit. Karen's third Victorian novel (and second with HarperCollins), A Trace of Deceit is a story of art, loyalty, murder, a little flirtation, and London. It's wonderful, as are all the books Karen writes--and if you want to immerse yourself in another time and another place over the Holidays, pick up A Trace of Deceit. Congratulations, Karen!!!

My Darkest Prayer

Welcome to the #HSG family to Shawn A. Cosby, Thuglit contributor, author of the upcoming novel "My Darkest Prayer" (Intrigue Publishing, Jan 1), and a man who performed the most polite, gentle, devastating put-down of an anti-immigrant racist we've ever seen, during a Bouchercon panel last month. We've read 50 pages of Shawn's next book, and...well...just remember "Plymouth Duster" and "Drag Race."

We all have causes we deeply believe in, that we're truly passionate about, and we support them to the best of our abilities. On Thursday night, October 26, at 7:00 PM at the charming 15th STREET GALLERY I'm presenting an entertaining evening of music and mystery, perfect for the Halloween season. All the money we raise will go to the student scholarship fund of the Citizens Climate Lobby - Salt Lake City. These scholarships will enable students to go to regional CCL conferences and the national annual conference in Washington, DC, where they will learn how to participate in our democratic process in a positive, productive, respectful way, and to meet with our members of Congress. The event on the 26th will be A TOTALLY FUN NIGHT! I'll be talking about how music with diabolical stories inspired me to write murder mysteries, including my latest--Spring Break ("a joy to read"), and my Devil's Trill audiobook ("combining the deductive reasoning of Sherlock Holmes with the rhetorical finesse of Don Rickles")--and I'll be playing music from the books, including the "Devil's Trill" sonata, "Danse Macabre," and "Spring" from Vivaldi's Four Seasons. The evening will be topped off by a delicious, seasonally inspired reception provided by the Avenues Bistro on Third. The recommended donation for all of this is only $40 for adults and $25 for students. In addition, we'll be partnering with The King's English Bookshop and will be making a donation to the scholarship fund with every book sold that evening. What better way to help such a worthwhile cause! For more details, please call 801-671-0351 or email [email protected]. I look forward to seeing you there on the 26th for a fun night and to support a great cause. Please bring your friends and family! And if you decide to wear a Halloween costume....well, we won't stop you. PS If you absolutely can't make it to the event, you can still help out. Until Thanksgiving $5.00 will be donated to the scholarship fund for EVERY download of the critically acclaimed Devil's Trill audiobook: http://www.alisonlarkinpresents.com/product/devils-trill/
