Querying Kaitlyn Johnson

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. Be sure that your query is 1 page, the synopsis is no more than 2 double spaced pages, and the first 5 pages are the very first ones from your book! If submitting a graphic novel, give me the pitch, synopsis of the full story, and no more than 5 pages of script.

What I really want to hear most are your book details. Keep the bio brief and save our bonding for the possible phone call. Your story is what will make me fall in love first! Also, keep the reply email that allows you to check your query status. This is also the link that will allow you to message me to report if you've received an alternate offer.

What I like to see in my inbox:

- Graphic novels - MG/YA/Adult

​Upper MG
- Fantasy, Contemporary, light Sci Fi, Horror (more creepy dolls and curses, less blood and guts), Historical

Young Adult
- Fantasy (high, urban, or magical realism), Contemporary, Contemporary Romance, Historical, Paranormal (ghosts, witches, and vampires if unique; open to new legends/creatures)

- Fantasy, Light Sci Fi, Historical, Contemporary Romance

For all ages, I really want historical that focuses on perspectives and places not in the mainstream. Give me legends, myths, events, battles that aren't the everyday titles we see all the time. I'm not huge on retellings unless it's in depth and really makes me dig to figure out what story we're rediscovering.

I am NOT accepting the following unless personally requested in person/contest:

- Nonfiction
- Chapter or picture books
- Thriller/suspense/mystery
- Romantic Suspense
- Novellas, poetry, or short story collections
- Storylines heavily dependent on religious motives/events/themes
- Storylines heavily dependent on sexual/physical/drug abuse
- Previously published works (traditional or self)
