Query Guidelines

Please email complete manuscripts in PDF. Submissions with only a summary or sample chapters will be immediately deleted. This applies to all submissions, not just picture books. The body of your email should include a short synopsis, your current place of residence, and an indication if it is a multiple or exclusive submission. Due to the volume of submissions received, further enquiries will be sent only for submissions being actively considered. If you have not received a reply within twelve weeks, you can assume there is no further interest.

EQ 3/31 #MSWL

ER 'fun and interesting story. I'm hoping for contemporary neighborhood stories with no fantastical elements."

I queried it as supernatural elements. It was hard to define, thought 3 of my beta readers called it magical realism.

I'm querying a new MG. I plan to bring this story back. one day!

I sent my query shortly before Christmas and received a response (rejection) shortly afterwards. Ms. Ocampo's letter to me was kind and showed that she read at least part of my manuscript - thank you Ms. Ocampo, for giving me a chance!
