What should I include with my submission?
For fiction, we like to see a concise cover letter and three sample chapters – the first three. For non-fiction, please send a full proposal. Attachments are fine.
I haven’t heard from you in a while, what should I do?
Be patient. We do try to respond to everyone, but sometimes it can take a little while. We aim to respond to queries in 6 to 8 weeks. Please don’t call to ask.
