We're interested in adult literary and commercial projects that pull us in and keep us up at night.

Please read our guidelines before sending your query.


Query Guidelines


 

What We Want

  • Adult literary fiction and adult commercial fiction (including historical fiction, women's fiction, mysteries, and thrillers)

  • Queries that clearly state what the book is, what it's about, how long it is, and who it's by

  • Queries with the subject "Query: [Title]"

  • Polished, proofread, and enthusiastic queries

What We Don't Want

  • Nonfiction, children's books, or screenplays

  • Unsolicited manuscripts sent without a query letter (we won't read them)

  • Queries for books that aren't yet written 

  • Queries with attachments (we won't open them)
