Please include a query letter, a synopsis of your manuscript (one or two pages) including character development, plot, and conflict/story resolution, and your complete manuscript for review.
Make sure to include your contact information, including your physical address and phone number.
We are looking for excellent, well-written stories, independent of subject matter. Your story can have cowboys, spaceships, ghosts, goats, vampires, explosions, fights, pets, special powers; as long as it is good, we are interested.
Please stick to Middle Grade themes and avoid "hot button" topics such as sex, drugs and rock-and-roll.
If you are trying to teach a child something, please make sure your intentions are not obvious. Make the "lesson" an integrated part of your story.
Books can change people. Make sure the change you bring is positive.
Please polish your stories the best you can before submitting. While we will most likely go through several rounds of editing between us and the author, we will give your story more attention and more credit if it is well written and easy to follow from the start.
