I exclusively represent nonfiction works across a range of subjects, but particularly history, social issues, popular science, food & culture, and cookery. Both published and unpublished authors are welcome to submit their work, just bear in mind that I can only agree to represent a very small number of new clients in any given year, and I will gravitate towards authors who are well established in their field. To submit your work for consideration, please follow the below guidelines:
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Write QUERY and the title of your book in the subject line.
In the body of your email tell me briefly who you are (including your publishing history – don’t be dissuaded if you are a debut author!), a short book pitch, and a plot synopsis/overview… i.e., the traditional query letter.
Attach the full proposal, which should include a detailed TOC and a sample chapter.
Format your proposal as a PDF. This ensures that I can open and read the attachment from whatever device I happen to be on.
If you don't receive a response within three weeks, please resend your query and indicate that you're sending it again. I will try to read and respond to all emails quickly, but sometimes may need a second prompting.
