    SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
    • As for query letters: unless you have been REFERRED by someone (in which case, put that in the SUBJECT LINE of your email), I do not respond to queries.
    • I look at everything that gets emailed to me, and we have readers reviewing what’s mailed in, but time does not exist for me to have a one-on-one dialogue with every query letter that’s submitted.
    • Highlight your REFERRAL and your platform in the query. That will get my attention and then I’ll look at your idea.

    FACTS/TIDBITS
    • Her authors include many New York Times bestsellers including Julia Cameron, Gregg Olsen, and Thomas Kostigen.
