MY INTERACTIVE BOOKSHELF

 

ABOUT ME

I am a literary agent with

the Laura Dail Literary Agency.  

I blog about adventures in agenting,

my clients, books I love, 

living in New York, my adorable cats,

and everything else!  

I also give pretty great advice.

Follow me on Twitter and

pay a visit to my old blog 

to learn more about my life pre-2019.

Publishers Marketplace Dealmaker page.

LDLA SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Send a concise email query letter to:

queries [at] ldlainc [dot] com

Along with your book's title,

please include the name of the agent

you are querying in the subject field.

This helps guarantee that your submission 

ends up in the right person's queue.

(Example subject line:

QUERY: TITLE for CARRIE PESTRITTO)

Your query letter should include

a short pitch, a short plot summary, and a short bio.

Please also include publisher

submission history and previous

publishing credits, if applicable.

If you are a debut author, do not worry.

After your query letter, paste the

first 5-10 pages of your novel

into the body of the email.

Your writing sample MUST be pasted

into the email—we do not open

unrequested attachments.

You may also include a synopsis,

but it's not required.

My (Average) Submission Timeline

Once I receive your query,

if I am going to request pages,

I usually do so by the 2 month mark.

When I receive a partial,

 it goes to my TBR pile and I try to respond

with feedback in about 3-6 months.
