Query Emily Forney at BookEnds Literary Agency
Hello, wonderful creatives, and welcome to my Query Manager!
I'm really grateful you are taking your time to query me. This process can feel just as nerve-wracking for me as it is for you, because I look to fall in love with new stories and it's incredibly exciting.
Before you begin, I encourage you to check out my manuscript wishlist via my website to know a general list of what I am looking for and what I am NOT a good fit for. You can find that here: https://www.emilykaitlin.com/manuscript-wishlist
Please note I am NOT accepting unsolicited picture books, chapter books, or graphic novels.
For queries, I typically look for a good understanding of the major plot points, but I also want to feel as though I can viscerally see your characters/mood, which is why I have include three totally optional questions at the bottom to get a better sense of the work. Don't feel obligated to fill them out; your manuscript will speak for itself, too.
For transparency, I’ve been a bit slower to getting to queries because of some personal responsibilities, but will do my best to get to yours as quickly as I can and I really appreciate anyone considering me!
