Finding and representing the next generation of authors
Do YOU need a literary agent?
We NEVER charge reading fees for considering work, nor do we charge for standard copyediting of accepted submissions.
We are always looking for good fiction. We especially like science fiction, fantasy, thrillers and historical fiction.
We always seek good how-to books, biography, self-help, narrative nonfiction and creative nonfiction.
We are not reading children's books, plays, poetry or scripts at this time. We do not consider graphic novels--we simply do not have the expertise.
We DO NOT represent previously published books (If it has an ISBN do not submit).
Send queries as email text only--we do not open unsolicited attachments. Do not sent queries to any address other than those indicated in these pages.
