Submit a query letter via e-mail to email@example.com that includes a brief author bio and synopsis of the work. Outline and sample chapters should only be sent upon request. Any material sent should be single-sided, double-spaced, and in twelve-point font. No phone solicitations, unsolicited manuscripts, handwritten material, or electronic versions will be accepted. Attachments to query letters will not be opened (unless material has been specifically requested). Nothing else should be submitted unless specifically requested.
Due to the volume of queries submitted, it is impossible to reply personally to each query received. If writing samples or manuscripts are requested by us, we try to respond as soon as possible, but usually between three and four weeks from receipt of the requested materials.
