Send a query to Jessica Alvarez of BookEnds Literary

Please note that I reply to all queries and make an attempt to do so well within 2 weeks of receipt. Honestly, you'll probably get a response to your query within days, if not hours, but it sometimes takes me longer. For requested proposals and completes, I'm not as speedy but my response is usually within 12 weeks.

Despite what it says in the form below, for nonfiction, please don't paste in your entire proposal. Just a few pages of your sample chapter, please.

I am not the right agent for any project involving graphic depictions of rape and sexual abuse, nor do I represent sci-fi/fantasy, young adult, or children's books. If your book falls into one of those categories, please take a look at www.bookendsliterary.com/submissions to see if one of BookEnds' other agents would be a better fit.

I look forward to reading your query! Thank you so much for thinking of me.
