Steve Kasdin joined Curtis Brown in 2012 as Director of Digital Strategy.
He supervises Curtis Brown’s eBook program, consulting with Curtis Brown’s agents in developing custom digital opportunities
for their clients with eBook publishers and digital retailers. Previously on the Kindle team at Amazon.com,
Steve has been in the publishing business for over 20 years. He has served as Marketing Director at St. Martin’s Press, Scholastic and Harcourt,
as an agent at the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency, and as a buyer for Barnes & Noble.
Steve is now taking on clients. He is seeking commercial fiction, including Mysteries/Thrillers, Romantic Suspense (emphasis on the suspense), and Historical Fiction); Narrative Nonfiction, including Biography, History and Current Affairs; and Young Adult Fiction, particularly if it has adult crossover appeal. He is NOT interested in SF/Fantasy, Memoirs, Vampires and writers trying to capitalize on trends. Please send a query letter about what makes your book unique, a 1-3 page plot synopsis, a brief bio (including a description of your publishing history, if you have one), and the first 40-50 pages of your manuscript as an attachment to the email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
