A polished submission will make you look more professional and help your queries, proposals, and synopses stand out from the crowded field. I prepared a handout on this topic for a presentation at a writer’s conference. It can be downloaded as a PDF file by clicking on the image below.
Services offered to writers include review of book contracts (never sign the version the publisher gives you), agent agreements (many warrant tinkering, a few are really egregious), enforcement of publishing agreements (nonpayment and reversion of rights), and opinions regarding copyright, defamation, and privacy issues.
I also act as a literary agent on a conventional commission basis. Areas in which I am particularly interested are science, health, psychology, and history. I am not taking on new fiction clients at this time and discourage such submissions. If you have a book idea that fits the above description, please feel free to send a query by e-mail. Queries should not exceed one page. Please do not call or send manuscripts instead of a query. Queries should concisely describe the subject of the book, the intended audience, and your qualifications to write the book. Some recommended books on preparing queries and book proposals can be found on this Amazon.com list.
