  • MORE INFORMATION

    SPECIAL INTERESTS
    • My particular interests are in literary fiction, mystery novels, historical fiction (that has been impeccably researched but is still a fictional narrative), and topical exposé non-fiction that is persuasive and/or a sustained polemic. I am also interested in scholarly non-fiction, particularly historical treatments, that are intelligent but accessible without being simplistic (examples are Augustus by John Buchan, Apocalypse by Neil Faulkner, The Sea Kingdoms by Alistair Moffat, and Sailing The Wine-Dark Sea by Thomas Cahill).
    DOES NOT REPRESENT
    • I do not handle children's books, poetry, screenplays, YA, or YA/crossover manuscripts.
    SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
    • http://www.tla1.com/agents2.php?id=33#cnt_co
    • Initial queries should be sent via email to meghan.macdonaldtla@gmail.com with your name and the title of the manuscript in the subject line (example: Query: John Smith - My Manuscript). Please send a 1-page cover letter in the body of the email and as an attachment, and attach a 1-page synopsis and the first 30-pages of the manuscript double-spaced, or thereabouts where a natural break occurs. Make sure all your attachments are free of grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. I want to see a polished excerpt or manuscript, not your first draft.
