Ladderbird Literary Agency Query
Thank you for querying Beth Marshea. I am thrilled to look at your work and wI do respond to every query. Please do not submit to small presses and me at the same time, those are two different paths to publishing. Please make sure your work is fully edited before submitting your query. This is a full service agency and it does do editorial work, but your best chance of acceptance is with a publishing ready manuscript. (Also, I get sad when I request a work and it's not available ;-) ).
Good luck! Remember it's a subjective industry, what doesn't appeal to me will be the perfect fit for another agent. Someone out there is waiting for your story!!
