Meet ShoreIndie Editor Julia A. Weber

Julia Alexandra Weber is a Germany-based literary agent-turned-editor who realized that she finds helping authors make their work shine way more rewarding than having to send out rejections on a daily basis. She is extremely passionate about well-crafted stories, compelling characters, and engaging writing, and specializes in editing commercial Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult, Romance, and Women’s Fiction as well as Suspense and Psychological Thrillers—in both German and English.

Julia holds Masters of Arts in Communication Studies, Creative Writing, and Publishing, and her years as a very hands-on and editorial literary agent have helped her develop an eye for detail as well as the skill to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a manuscript. She knows how to get your manuscript in shape without compromising your voice.

When she isn’t reading or editing, Julia is a big sports enthusiast, day dreamer, night thinker, and cake batter eater.

For ShoreIndie 2017, Julia is excited to accept...
  • (Commercial) YA, NA, and Women’s Fiction
  • All the sports themes
  • Contemporary summer camp, sports camp, fat camp, boarding school, farm/ranch, small town, or reality/casting show settings
  • Sliding door scenarios
  • Stalker thrillers
  • All the Romance/HEAs
  • Thoughtful and sensitive “issue books” about eating disorders, OCDs, rape…
  • Stories told in unusual formats (blog, diary, scrapbook…)
  • Stories about modern technology and its consequences (cyber-bullying and/or viral pictures, stories, and videos…) 

Follow Julia on Twitter, check out her Website, and ask her all your questions during her #ShoreIndie #AskEditor sessions on Sunday, May 28th at 3pm ET and Thursday, June 1st at 3pm ET.
