Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Abby Saul of The Lark Group

Abby Saul is a literary agent with The Lark Group.

Abby founded The Lark Group after a decade in publishing at John Wiley & Sons, Sourcebooks, and Browne & Miller Literary Associates. She’s worked with and edited bestselling and award-winning authors as well as major brands. At each publishing group she’s been a part of, Abby also has helped to establish ebook standards, led company-wide forums to explore new digital possibilities for books, and created and managed numerous digital initiatives.

A zealous reader who loves her iPad and the ebooks on it, she still can’t resist the lure of a print book. Abby’s personal library of beloved titles runs the gamut from literary newbies and classics, to cozy mysteries, to sappy women’s fiction, to dark and twisted thrillers. She’s looking for great and engrossing adult commercial and literary fiction and is a member of the AALA. A magna cum laude graduate of Wellesley College, Abby spends her weekends—when she’s not reading—cooking and hiking with her husband and son. Find her @BookySaul on Twitter.

She is seeking:

  • Adult literary fiction
  • Adult commercial fiction (including historical fiction, women’s fiction, mysteries, and thrillers)

She does NOT want:

— Science fiction, nonfiction, children’s books (including YA), or screenplays
— Unsolicited manuscripts sent without a query letter (we won’t read them)
— Queries for books that aren’t yet written
— Queries with attachments (we won’t open them)
