Frequently Asked Questions About Submitting Queries, Manuscripts and Book
Proposals for Representation

QUESTION #1:   Are you taking on new clients?
Yes. Most new clients of the agency are experienced, professional authors, including
journalists and academics who have a history of publication, in book form or otherwise, or
they are author-experts with serious credentials and established media access in their areas
of expertise.  In most cases, a new client will have a polished book proposal or manuscript
already in hand.

QUESTION #2:   How should I send in my query?
You should email your work to query@mendelmedia.com.  We no longer accept or read
submissions sent by mail, so please do not send inquiries by any other method. If we want to
read more or discuss your work, we will respond to you by email or phone.

  • Fiction queries: If you have a novel you would like to submit, please paste a synopsis
    and the first twenty pages into the body of your email, below a detailed letter about
    your publication history and the history of the project, if it has been submitted
    previously to publishers or other agents. Please do not use attachments, as we will
    not open them.

  • Nonfiction queries: If you have a completed nonfiction book proposal and sample
    chapters, you should paste those into the body of an email, below a detailed letter
    about your publication history and the history of the project, if it has been submitted
    previously to any publishers or other agents. Please do not use attachments, as we
    will not open them.
You can download guidelines about writing a book proposal here.

QUESTION #3:   Did you receive my query?  Why haven't I heard back?
If we want to read more or discuss your work, we will call or email you directly.  If you do not
receive a personal response within a few weeks,  we are not going to offer representation.  In
any case, however, please do not call or email to inquire about your query.
