Query for Ramona Pina at Bookends Literary Agency

Thank you for trusting me with your work! I know this is an important step towards publishing, and am grateful you've considered me on your journey to finding an agent.

1. Please be sure to select the correct genre for your book. I will reject miscategorized queries in genres I'm not open to.
2. For PICTURE BOOKS, only upload illustration samples if you're submitting a picture book as an author/illustrator.

I won't reject a manuscript for a typo or a misplaced comma. I want to know you and your book as I consider. So in your query, captivate me with your HOOK, then tell me about the BOOK, and don't forget the COOK (you).

If you believe we're a good fit, please note that I plan to carefully read each query and reply within 4-6 weeks of receipt. For requested proposals and completes, my response is usually within 10-12 weeks. I look forward to reviewing your work.

Thank you, and write on!
