Query first please
Address queries to the Acquisitions Editor
Don’t try to be clever, as many advice columns urge, but tell us in plain English:
who you are: name, where you live; if you live “away”, what connections – if any – you have down east (former Maritime resident; related to current Maritimers; story is set in Atlantic Canada)
“green” fiction: novels and book-length collections of short stories set against ecological problems – climate change, loss of habitat, etc. – “green” fiction for children and young adults.
Mystery and fantasy novels for either adults or young adults
We are particularly interested in these themes and will consider manuscripts from anywhere on these themes. We are not, however, restricted to them.
We are currently not reading poetry or children’s books
Include a self-addressed stamped envelope if by post.
We try to reply promptly – within a day or two.
We do not want to see sample chapters, diskettes, or attachments at this stage. Your letter will tell us all we need to know.
Should we wish to explore your proposal further, we will ask for:
exclusive reading rights for three months
We are easy to approach and work with, but please do as we ask. Our acquisitions editor will not, for example, accept a manuscript that is single-spaced.
We look forward to many good manuscripts.
