Submission Guidelines

Please visit my website. I try to respond to all queries I receive.

However, I do not respond to queries that are not specifically addressed to me by name. And I do not respond to queries in attachments.

I prefer straightforward query letters that get right to the point about what the project is and which show the author to be familiar with the marketplace and my list.

If you’re submitting fiction please include the first few pages of the manuscript with the query. 

Tips From the Agent

In fiction I’m looking for literary or commercial projects in either contemporary or historical settings. I’m open to anything with a strong sense of place, voice, and, especially, plot. I don’t handle science fiction, romance, supernatural or young adult.

In nonfiction I’m especially interested in narratives in history, memoir, journalism, natural science, military history, sports, pop culture, and humor. 

I’m also interested in visually-driven and illustrated books. Whether they involve photography, comics, illustrations, or art I’m taken by creative storytelling with visual elements, four-color or black and white.
