From Jo Ann Hernandez
Adriana Domínguez has joined Full Circle Literary as its newest agent, effective immediately. Ms. Domínguez has over ten years of experience in publishing, most recently as Executive Editor at HarperCollins Children's Books, where she managed the children's division of the Latino imprint, Rayo.
Prior to her work at HarperCollins, Ms. Domínguez was Children's Reviews Editor at Críticas magazine, published by Library Journal. She is also a professional translator, and has worked on a number of Spanish-language translations of best-selling children’s books.
At Full Circle Literary, Ms. Domínguez will continue her strong list of children's picture books, middle grade novels, and literary young adult novels. She will also represent authors writing for adults in the following genres: literary fiction, women's fiction, and historical fiction. For her adult nonfiction list, she will seek women's interest, multicultural, pop culture, and how-to books.
Full Circle Literary founder Stefanie Von Borstel says, "We are very excited to have Adriana on board. Her eye for spotting and developing authors is unparalleled, and we feel her taste is very much in tune with our global interests. Adriana and I met while working on Latino-interest projects at Rayo. I was impressed by her detail-oriented editing and her strength as an advocate for authors throughout the publishing process. I am certain that those skills, among others, will make her an excellent agent."
"I am very much looking forward to helping published and unpublished authors develop their work and navigate the complex world of publishing from concept through publication, and beyond," adds Ms. Domínguez. "I am particularly excited about having joined an agency that shares my interest in publishing the work of Latino authors and that has the awards and recognition to prove that it does it well."
Ms. Domínguez will be based in New York City and will serve as Full Circle Literary's East Coast representative. She can be contacted by e-mail at Adriana@fullcircleliterary.com.
