Partially Closed to Queries for the Summer

Happy (almost) Independence Day! In that spirit of freedom, we are partially closing to queries through the end of August. Or at least, Kate and Hilary are closing to queries. Renee remains closed, although Sara and Hannah will continue to consider your amazing work. Full details are available on our submissions page.

While we announced this partial closure a few days ago, I’m a little behind in posting it, so I will aim to read and respond to all queries received through the end of the day today, July 3rd. Anything received by me or Hilary after that point will be deleted unread.

I can’t wait to use this time to get caught up on my beach reading! I have a pile of great books on my TBR, including LEGENDARY by Stephanie Garber, FRONT DESK by Kelly Yang, and CROOKED KINGDOM by Leigh Bardugo. And I keep adding new ones everyday! What’s on your summer reading list?
