With the exception of memoir, non-fiction does not need to be completed.  A detailed book proposal with a strong marketing plan and platform is absolutely necessary.  I will not look at non-fiction unless accompanied by a book proposal.  Initial query must highlight the marketability and qualifications of the author in order for me to consider requesting the proposal. 

For agenting services, there is never a charge for reading manuscripts.


In general:


I consider professionalism just as important as quality writing.  

This is a business - I expect a business letter.

No attachments in the query. They will not be opened.  
unsolicited manuscripts. 
calls regarding queries. 
Make sure the query is addressed to me, otherwise I consider it spam.
Indicate whether or not this is an exclusive or simultaneous submission, or if a partial or full manuscript is out to other agencies or publishers.  

During conference times, a response could take a number of weeks.  Please review my conference schedule to determine my busy times.  Thank you in advance for your patience.
