Submissions

I am open to queries!

In your subject line, please include the title of your book and its category and genre. (e.g. [Title], [Category], Genre])

For nonfiction, please send your query letter in the body of your email and full book proposal and marketing/publicity plan as an attached document.

For fiction, send your query letter and first 25 pages of your manuscript in the body of your email.

I will respond to all initial queries and try to respond within 6 to 7 weeks. If you have not heard back from me by then, feel free to send a follow-up email.

If I have requested your full manuscript, please allow 12 weeks for me to read your entire work. As above, if you have not heard from me by then, feel free to send a nudge.

Suggestions

I want you to find the best home possible for your book, so don't feel like you need to submit exclusively to me. Find other agents who you think will represent you well too. 

Please query me with projects I will represent. If you have multiple projects you are querying, consider which one you think might be best suited to my MSWL.

 

Personal bios in your query letter are encouraged! I enjoy knowing the person whose work I am reading.

There are some great resources out there to help you write a great query letter and learn more about the writing and querying process! I recommend taking a look at:
