Dawn Dowdle, Blue Ridge Literary Agency

Please note, I only represent Romances and Mysteries. At this time I am NOT accepting any queries containing ANY fantasy or scifi elements. No previously published works. NO manuscripts over 100K. Make sure to submit chapters 1-3 in ONE Word document.

Please make sure to attach THREE chapters in one Word doc to have your query considered. Your synopsis should tell the story from beginning to end (including the ending), with all the main points of the story included.
