So you haven't been able to find an agent. That's okay. We accept submissions "over the transom" directly from authors. But we have to be honest, submissions that come in directly from authors are going to be read after submissions from agents. Think of agents as a filter that helps narrow down the search for good books.
But we know what a subjective business publishing is. A book one agent hates might be one another agent loves. There are, you know, plenty of stories of writers who were rejected over and over, only to become best-selling authors.
So, we're keeping an open mind and an open submission policy. We'll look at everything that is submitted to us and we'll respond to everything. It just might take a while. So thanks in advance for your patience and thanks for sharing your work with us!
