My Manuscript Wish List®

Hello fellow book lovers! I’m Paige Wheeler, the founder of Creative Media Agency, Inc. With over two decades in the publishing world, I’ve been on a journey driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for discovering exceptional stories.

My background as an editor, tv agent, and book agent (Agent at Artists Agency; Founding partner at Folio Literary Management) proves I’m passionate about good storytelling. I’ve been honored to work with NYT, USA Today and PW bestselling authors, and I’m always looking for new talent.

At Creative Media Agency, I don’t just represent authors; I’m here to support and champion their unique voices in every way possible. I’m particularly drawn to projects that stand out – whether it’s upscale or commercial fiction or practical or narrative nonfiction. A high concept and a fresh, unique voice always catch my eye.

My motivation lies in projects that are not only commercially viable but also ones that I can’t stop talking about. I aim to be a genuine cheerleader for each project I take on. I appreciate well-organized, smartly constructed stories with a brilliant and unique voice. If your book is not just a story but a smartly crafted journey, then you’ve got my attention. Here’s what I’d like:

I’d love to see the next Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin or The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell by Robert Dugoni.

I’d love to read a manuscript in the vein of Alice Feeney’s Rock Paper Scissors or BA Parris’ Behind Closed Doors

I’d like great relatable books like Laurie Gilman’s Class Mom

I want to some funny, twisted work like Finlay Donovan is Killing It by Elle Cosimano

I want to be utterly charmed by book like Emily Henry’s Book Lovers (of course); Poppy Alexander’s The Littlest Library; or Abby Jimenez’s The Friend Zone.

I want to learn something from projects like Four Thousand Weeks by Oliver Burkeman, be inspired by books like Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
