If you’ve queried BookEnds anytime this week you might have noticed one very big change. We are no longer accepting queries via email, instead we are now taking them via Query Manager, a very exciting new platform by the creator of Query Tracker.
If you’ve already queried any of us via email do not worry. We still have your query or submission and we’re still considering it.
In my many, many years I’ve been in publishing there have been a number of services that offer agents an “easy” way to find new clients. Usually they forced an author to pay to upload their material to their websites so agents could peruse it. They never worked. In a world where agents receive hundreds of queries a week there is no need to add an extra step to the process. Query Manager however presented an entirely different platform. It’s something I’ve never seen anyone else do and it contains all sorts of great features that we couldn’t resist. In addition, the owner, Patrick, has been wonderful about adding and modifying things based on our feedback.
All of our submission information is always on the Submissions page of our website, but if you’re looking to query any agent at BookEnds, here are the direct links to our Query Manager submission forms:
We are super excited about this change and I know the powers-that-be at Query Manager, as well as the agents-that-be at BookEnds welcome any input authors might have about how the new process works for them.
