Send a Query to Jennifer Chevais at The Rights Factory!

Categories Jennifer is accepting queries for are:

- Fiction (commercial including speculative - completed manuscripts only);
- Graphic Novels (projects do not need to be completed, however, there should be roughly 30-40 pages complete, with illustrations);
- Memoir (finished or proposals), and
- Other non-fiction (proposals).

***November is National Native American Heritage Month in the U.S., and, as such, I would love to see queries by Indigenous creators from Turtle Island and anywhere else they call home.***

NO Self-Help
NO modern military operation / warfare timelines
CAUTION on vampire stories (I love vampires and am currently at my limit of clients who write mostly vampiric fiction. If you write other spec fiction along these lines, you should either lead with that project or indicate in your query that you write other types of stories too)


A special note on word count: manuscripts over 120,000 are very hard (bordering on impossible) to place right now. Please ensure that your manuscript’s word count is within the norm for your genre. Thank you!
