My Manuscript Wish List

I’m seeking MG, YA, and Adult fiction across all genres, particularly romance, horror, fantasy, and realistic. My tastes are pretty broad, ranging from clean and lighthearted to edgy and dark. Diversity of all types (ethnicity, disability, sexuality, etc.) welcome!

I’m NOT seeking: Early readers/chapter books, screenplays, poetry, and short stories.

Fun facts about me:

Linda is teaching Writing a Manuscript That Gets and Keeps Everyone’s Attention for The Manuscript Academy. She is also taking 10-minute live meetings and pitches. #MSWLMA

Submission Guidelines

I’m accepting queries through Prospect Agency’s Submissions page. Please include three chapters and a brief synopsis. Do not query by email or letter mail and do not submit unsolicited manuscripts or inquire about the status of submissions via email.

Guidelines & Details


As a new addition from The Manuscript Academy, #MSWL’s educational sister company, we are now offering ten-minute e-meetings with a select group of our agents and editors to discuss your work, what you can do better–and how to maximize your chances of success in the submissions process. You’ll be able to pick from Skype, Hangouts, or a phone call–and, yes, this works internationally. Please see our FAQ, our step-by-step guide to booking your meeting, a list of participating agents and editors–and consider joining our Facebook group, a free, friendly community of writers cheering each other on through this process.

Please note: Meetings are posted once monthly, and then often sell out. If there are meetings available, you’ll see them bolded on the calendar below after clicking “Set Time Zone.”
