You Have Chosen to Query: Saritza Hernandez
Thank you so much for considering me for your representation! Please complete as many options below as possible, and I will get back to you as soon as I am able.
When querying me:
• Avoid using passive voice in your query. Hook me with your first sentence and keep me engaged throughout your query, synopsis and sample pages.
• Keep your synopsis to 2-pages, single-spaced. It should show characterization, setting, conflict, resolution and for romance, the HEA or HFN.
• Follow submission guidelines to avoid receiving an automated rejection letter.
• In fiction, I am more interested in your work than your writing/pub credits so make sure it's the Work that stands out in your query.
• In nonfiction, your platform is key. Make sure that's clearly evident in your proposal. Tell me what makes you the right person for this work: (ie: Chef with 15 years of culinary experience, YouTube sensation with more than 1 million followers, etc.)
• I require a one-sentence pitch (or tagline) of your work. If you pitched this to me via Twitter, copy and paste the tweet in that section of the form.
• Romance works should meet the romance novel criteria as defined by the RWA. If your story does not meet the criteria, it is not a romance.
Remember, I am NOT accepting the following:
• Picture Books, Chapter Books
• Short story collections
• Inspirational works including religious overtones
All the best,
