kevan_lyonRead the chatscript from the January 27, 2014 session of #litchatbetsy with Kevan Lyon here.

First up in our #litchatbetsy Literary Salon is agent Kevan Lyon of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. With clients such as Erika Robuck, Renee Rosen and Shelley Noble, Marsal Lyon is among a few dozen agencies that prove you don’t need to be in New York to be successful. Kevan has an eye for strong characters and complex plots. She is a self-avowed historical fiction fanatic, but doesn’t restrict her choices to historicals. Kevan handles women’s fiction—with an emphasis on commercial women’s fiction—young adult fiction and all genres of romance. She is also interested in non-fiction, representing authors in the areas of current events, narrative, memoir, environment, parenting and pets/animals. With non-fiction projects she looks for topics that she is passionate about or that speak to issues of particular concern to women and families. Kevan works with her authors to help them realize their dreams of being published and to build a long term career as a writer.
