  • Any fiction other than Middle Grade or Young Adult.

If we haven’t mentioned a genre or topic here, we are open to considering it, if it’s the right project.  If your submission is for a genre or topic that we specifically mentioned above as NOT being interested in, your email will simply be deleted.

You can submit to us in one of two ways, either through email or through our new Authors.me platform.  Please only choose one method.

To submit through email:  For non-fiction submissions, please send a query letter to nonfiction@lkgagency.com, along with a Table of Contents and two sample chapters.  The Table of Contents should be fairly detailed, with a paragraph or two overview of the content of each chapter.  Please also make sure to mention any publicity you have at your disposal.  For middle grade and young adult submissions, please send a query, synopsis, and the three (3) chapters, and address all submissions to mgya@lkgagency.com.  On a side note, while both Lauren and Caitlen consider young adult and middle grade, Lauren tends to look more for middle grade, while Caitlen deals more with young adult fiction.

If we are interested in a project, we will let you know.  All subsequent materials should be sent as email attachments, in .doc or .docx format.  Please do not send any attachments as a pdf.  We make an effort to respond to all relevant queries within two to three months.

Please note: due to the high volume of submissions, we are unable to reply to every one.  If you do not receive a reply, please consider that a rejection.

To submit through Authors.me: Just click on the button below.  You will need to sign up with Authors.me, which is FREE, and fill out a detailed profile for your work.  However, you will be able to track your work — when it gets received, when it’s read, and what our ultimate decision is regarding your submission.
