Query Letters for i Literary Agents
Submissions or Query Letters
Due to heavy volume of submissions, please include a link to a Query Letter as the first step in submitting your work.
We also expect any author to have
a. Their own website (not a blog on wordpress.com)
b. Titles already selling on Amazon
c. Active Social Media Accounts
We have no interest in any author without multiple titles and a real website with actual sales on Amazon as well as an engaged social media.
It is 2016 and if you wish to be an AUTHOR you need to take the bull by the horns and learn to PROMOTE YOURSELF as an author, that means you own your PENNAME.com and have social media connected to it and have already ventured into self publishing and had sales.
In 2016, a publisher looks to see if a new author is really interested in their career as a writer. An author with a website and active social media that is at least attempting to sell their work is an author that is up to speed it is 2016.
If you want a publisher to help you broaden your reach in 2016, then you need to show a publisher you aware it is 2016 and not 1999.
If we are interested in your Query we will email you to send us a partial or full manuscript.
Query Letter Guidelines
Please include in any Query Letter
A. Biographical Information including writing experience.
B. General Author Information as to amount of titles you have written and how many were published.
C. A general proposal for the manuscript you are submitting a Query Letter for.
D. A fiction Query Letter should include the first chapter.
E. A non-fiction Query Letter should give biographical information about yourself as to why you are qualified to write such a work. The first chapter or a proposed chapter outline of the work should be included in the Query Letter.
F. We do not allow attachments at the initial contact between our firm and you, so you must create a Query Letter for us and then upload the Query Letter to a site and create a dynamic link that we can then download from.
