Querying the Virginia Kidd Agency
We are currently accepting
queries from prospective and published authors.
VKA is seeking quality, marketable fiction with an eye toward strong
character development and fresh storytelling. While our focus remains on
science fiction and fantasy, we will represent works beyond that if the
story is compelling. We consider SF/F, dark fantasy, historical fiction,
popular fiction and adventures. Cozy mystery and romance too. Overall,
the characters, their story and the quality of the actual writing are
more important than the genre.
We only consider manuscript in Standard Industry Format.
Please be aware that turnaround on queries is generally about three months.
If you can offer extremely high quality work, and you prefer to send
