Sub Guidelines

BookEnds has worked hard to streamline all of our processes and save a few trees. For those reasons, all submissions should be made electronically through the Query Manager database.

Here is the link to Rachel's submission form, as well as a brief description of her most current preferences below.

Rachel is looking for fresh stories in women’s fiction (commercial or upmarket)romancemystery, and YAShe'd like to see more books featuring POC protagonists, LGBTQIAP+ protagonists, and QPOC protagonists, particularly when #ownvoices on any of the above; second and third generation immigrant stories; complex multi-generational family dynamics; food, community, and culture intertwining; non-western retellings or mythological influences; complicated sibling relationships; unapologetic feminist characters; and secrets from loved ones which are not rooted in cheating.
