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?
Please do not send inquiries by email or fax. Instead, please follow the procedure below.  If
we want to read more, we'll ask for it by email or phone.  If you would like a response, in the
event we can't take on your project or don't want to read more, you should include a pre-
addressed return mailer with sufficient return postage already affixed for the return of your
materials -- or just include a standard self-addressed stamped envelope, in which case we'll
respond with a note but discard the submitted materials.  Our mailing address is:

  • Fiction queries: If you have a novel you would like to submit, please send the first
    twenty pages and a synopsis by regular post to the address above, along with a
    detailed letter about your publication history and the history of the project, if it has
    been submitted previously to publishers or other agents.

  • Nonfiction queries: If you have a completed nonfiction book proposal and sample
    chapters, you should mail those by regular post to the address above, along with 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.  You can download
    guidelines about writing a book proposal here.

QUESTION #3:   Did you receive my query?  Why haven't I heard back?
We try to respond within a few weeks to all queries that include a self-addressed stamped
envelope or other return mailer.  Sometimes we fall behind a bit, but eventually we get to
them all.  If you have not received any response to your query, the most likely reasons are that
it was not delivered or it did not include a return mailer.  In any case, however, please do not
call or email to inquire about your query, as there is unfortunately no way for us to track
individual submissions.
