Submission Guidelines
Send only a query letter by postal mail or email.

From the website:  "If we are interested in the idea presented, we then contact the author and ask to see more material. For novels, we typically ask to see a detailed synopsis plus 3-5 sample chapters. We prefer to see sequential chapters, usually the first chapters from the book. If we like what we read, we would then ask for the full manuscript. For non-fiction, we would ask to see a full proposal plus 1-3 sample chapters."

Postal-mail queries without stamped, self-addressed envelopes for reply are discarded.
Interested in
The agency is most interested in commercial women's fiction, especially sweeping historicals, edgy, fresh teen/chick/mom/lady lit, and Christian Booksellers Association women's fiction by established authors.  It is also interested in literary historical mysteries and literary YA novels.  Timely non-fiction projects are also of interest, especially prescriptive how-to, self-help, sports, humor, and pop culture.
Not interested in
