What I’m Looking For

Updated January, 2013

I represent books for the Christian market (CBA) as well as for the general market, and I’m now accepting queries for both.

Please note:
Read our Submission Guidelines before sending a query!

My query policy:
While we would like to respond to all queries, our policy is that if you do not hear back within 60 days, you can consider it a “pass.” If you follow the guidelines and send the query to the correct email address, you’ll receive an automated response so you’ll know we received it.

What I’m looking for:

Adult Fiction: 

General and Christian market, full-length, 75,000 to 120,000 words. Women’s, Mystery, Suspense/Thriller, Family Saga, Historical, Legal, Literary, Mainstream, Romance. No fantasy or sci-fi.


NO children’s, middle grade, or YA books.

Non Fiction:
I’m looking at both Christian market and general market projects. Memoirs, Home Life, Current Affairs, Health & Diet, Narrative Nonfiction, Popular Culture, Self-Help, Women’s Issues.

Christian theology, apologetics, pastoral, spiritual growth:
I only take on this kind of project if the author has an established platform, such as a popular blog in which the topic is already being addressed.

I am NOT looking at devotionals.

What else am I NOT looking at?
→ Gift books
→ Cookbooks
→ Poetry
→ Short stories
→ Novellas (except from current clients)
→ Screenplays
→ Graphic novels
→ Children’s picture books.
→ Science fiction or fantasy for any age.
