    about fountain literary





I am accepting queries in the following areas: fiction (literary to commercial and everything in between, except sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, and romance), health, parenting, memoir, pop culture, humor, self-help, food and wine, pop science, current events, women's issues, and big “think” books. I am not looking for spirituality, new age, finance, or sports. While I’m a huge fan of fiction and open to taking on debut novelists, I also subscribe to Henry James’ philosophy that “the only obligation to which in advance we may hold a novel without incurring the accusation of being arbitrary, is that it be interesting.”

I accept electronic queries only. Please send submissions with the letter in the body of the email and not as an attachment, and I’ll get right back to you asking to see the project, or politely rejecting.

Please don’t include a lengthy synopsis in your query letter; a one-page letter that briefly describes the project and gives some biographical information should be plenty.

All submissions should be sent to:

Thanks for your interest. I look forward to hearing from you, and learning more about your project.
