Literary Agent


Gail's literary agent is Kristin Nelson of the Nelson Literary Agency (NLA). If you are interested in submitting to Kristin, you can find guidelines on her website. If you are looking for tips or insider help, try Kristin's blog. Gail is not a literary agent herself. Sigh.



The Parasol Protectorate and Custard Protocol books are published first in North America by Orbit US. For audio and foreign rights information please see the relevant sections on this website.

The Finishing School
books are published first in North America by Little Brown Books for Young Readers.



The Parasol Protectorate and Custard Protocol books are edited by Devi Pillai senior editor at Orbit US. She is obsessed with cheese plates.

The Finishing School books were edited by Kate Sullivan and Deirdre Jones at Little Brown.

If you are interested in submitting to Orbit or Little Brown, you will need an agent. The wonderful Tara K. Harper offers good insight and information on the basics of getting published.

Thrilling Notes

* How do I pronounce the "g" in Carriger? It's hard, as in GIR.
* Query?
This website is kept up to date. Please do not ask for information already made available here.
* Student? Gail will not do your homework for you. She does not write for free.
* Blurb Request? Gail no longer provides cover blurbs nor reviews by request. If she has already reviewed your book on Goodreads feel free to contact her for a quote. Why is this the case?
* ARC request? Gail cannot provide you with an e-Galley or ARC of her traditionally published works, nor will she give out her publicist's email (etiquette must be observed). Please contact Hachette via their website.
* Hesitant? She's nice. No really, despite the above. And she LOVES hearing from her readers. Go on... leave a calling card.

Please read (at the very least) Gail's FAQ before you send a question.
