pmarino300 - I only saw that they did not accept unsolicited manuscripts. I saw nothing on their website about queries.

On Friday I requeried Samantha Shea with Venom--today I've heard back from her--not a right fit for her. I'll try her this summer with Chain Reaction.

Dear Author,

Thank you for your query. However, I don’t think this project is quite right for my list and will, therefore, have to step aside.

Best of luck,

Samantha Shea
