Quick submissions update
A note on submissions policy–I (Holly) have recently changed my submissions autoresponder. I’m still acknowledging receipt of all submissions (if you send to the submissions address: hollysubmit (at) waxmanagency dot com, you will get a confirmation; if you send to any other address it won’t kick in) but will only be responding if I want to see more materials.
I’m trying it out to see if it helps tighten up my response times on requested fulls & partials–it’ll take a bit of time for that to trickle down. If I am interested you’ll hear a response on your query within 2 weeks. And my goal is to be able to read your materials, should I request them, faster too.
And just for kicks, here’s my current wish list of fiction genres:
-Middle grade, all stripes
-YA (I like funny; if it’s going to be dark I tend to like more literary; open to paranormal, contemporary, you name it)
-Women’s fic, “book club” or very well executed commercial
I do rep romance, urban fantasy, and the occasional mystery. My bar for those is particularly high at the moment, but if in doubt, please do give me a try because I’m always happy to take a look at a query.
As always, thank you for sharing your queries with me–I take them very seriously, and have found (and still am finding!) great authors through queries, so it’s important to me to find ways to keep that line open.
