Sub Guidelines

BookEnds has worked hard to streamline all of our processes and save a few trees. For those reasons, we ask that all submissions 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 Brooks's focus is fiction, specifically adult romance and young adult, as well as select women's fiction and cozy mysteries. 

  • To break it down further, in adult romance she's looking for high concept stories with sizzling chemistry. Some of her favorite tropes are enemies to lovers, fake relationship, and second chance romance. 
  • In young adult she especially wants to read manuscripts by authors of color and LGBTQIA authors (although this applies to adult projects too). 
  • In women's fiction she is selectively looking for modern, commercial stories with wit and humor, multicultural stories, and novels that explore the relationships between sisters. 
  • For cozy mysteries, she wants a lovable sleuth you can't help but follow for many books, with a strong series hook, humor, and pets serving as an extra brownie point.
