We accept email queries only.
Please email your submission to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Email queries sent to any other address will not be read.
The subject line should begin as follows:
QUERY: (The title of the manuscript or any short message you would like to relay to us should follow.)
We are no longer opening email attachments, unless requested by our agents. Your entire submission must appear in the body of the email and not as an attachment. Also, emails that contain “automatic picture downloads” will not be opened.
Please email the first chapter and synopsis along with a cover letter. Also, be sure to include the genre and the number of words in your manuscript, as well as pertinent writing experience in your query letter.
Please email your full non-fiction proposal including a query letter and your first chapter. If you are uncertain how to prepare a non-fiction proposal, there are many books available on this subject.
YA and Middle Grade:
Please email the first chapter and synopsis along with a cover letter.
Also, be sure to include the genre and the number of words in your manuscript, as well as pertinent writing experience in your query letter.
Please email the complete picture book text. One sample illustration may be included. Please do not email all the illustrations you plan to use. We will request illustrations if needed.
We read every submission we receive, however, due to the extremely high volume, we will only reply if we are interested in your project. If you do not hear from us in 12 weeks, please consider this a polite pass. Please be patient with us as we give your work the attention it deserves.
You should receive an automatic response that we have received your email. If not, please feel free to resubmit.
We are not responsible for emails which we do not receive; i.e., emails that are not delivered to our inbox for one reason or another. We are also not responsible for email replies to you that are returned to us as “undeliverable,” especially if an email address has changed. Because of the volume of emails we receive, we cannot attempt to match queries that are returned with any future email that says, “my new address is…” However; you may resend your query and state you have a new email address.
Finally, we welcome multiple submissions, but only ask that should you receive an offer of representation elsewhere that you inform us as well.
Thank you for your queries! We wouldn’t be in business and be able to sell the number of books we have sold without them.
