SUBMIT

I am currently closed to unagented/unsolicited queries.  Agents, if you feel your client's book is right for me, feel free to submit! If you don't have my personal email address yet, submission details are HERE


Before submitting, please check out my wish list and genre lengths tab (if you are not spot on with the genre length don't worry, but you need to be close). Don't see your genre? I may not be the right editor for you. But don't despair! Check out City Owl's website to see what our other editors are looking for. Once you are sure your polished work is for me, follow the guidelines below:

Send along a query letter email with the word Query and the title of your manuscript in the subject line of the email. In your query, please be sure to state the genre and length of your manuscript. As it is often overlooked, I must reiterate that City Owl does not publish YA, and your novel must have at least a little romance in it. Below your query (pasted into the body, NOT as an attachment) please put a short (1-2 page synopsis. If it is not apparent already in the synopsis, be sure to touch on the romantic elements in your book. They are a must for City Owl!) and the first ten pages of your manuscript. If you don't follow guidelines, the chances of a rejection go up 50%, at least. 

Response times vary from a few hours to a few weeks on queries and a few weeks to a few months on full manuscript requests. I look forward to hearing from you!
