  • I love YA/Juvenile Novels and Graphic Novels.  I'll need a 1-2 page synopsis, along with sample chapters and/or art.

    Update as of April 2010:  I am not considering any YA Fiction for the rest of 2010.  I will accept submissions for this category starting again in 2011.
  • Initial queries (i.e. query letters) need to be sent via U.S.P.S. or electronically.  If there is an interest in one's project, a FULL book proposal needs to be ready and available, as it will be requested.
  • If a manuscript is requested, it will be read and responded to.  Assume it will take anywhere from two to six weeks, depending on the time of the year.
