I am seeking representation for my sixth book, Jaguar Paloma and the Caketown Bar, a novel of magical realism set in 1865 in the riverside shanty town of Tartatenango, known as Caketown to raucous miscreants and cast-off mothers, muleteers and forgers, drunken monks and bridesmaids, Romany and bastard children who flout the borders between legitimacy and illegitimacy. The mayor of the city on-the-right-side-of-the-tracks is bent on their destruction, but they are led by Jaguar Paloma, a woman with an ability to control weather and water, the fecundity of animals, and the blooming of flowers. She is co-founder with her estranged best friend, a shrouded woman of extraordinary but unseen beauty, Orietta Becerra.
An entirely original work, Jaguar Paloma and the Caketown Bar is inspired by the cast-off women of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Macondo who lived one hundred years of servitude.
If you can recommend a great agent, please post their name and number in comments. Thanks!
