We are interested in picture books under 600 words. Rhyme is accepted, if it is done well. Genres will change, but currently we are looking for fantasy, fun, and child-centered stories.
We want to inspire children to find and keep the joy of reading. Middle-graders love historical fiction and fantasy. We are looking for novels under 60,000 words in those areas.
We're looking for author/illustrators and illustrators interested in working with authors to bring their stories to life. Also, if you are interested in designing book covers for MG novels, and/or inside illustrations, please query us with your portfolio link.
Submission will open in January 2024.
At that time, we will be looking for MG novels (with series potential) in FANTASY or HISTORICAL FICTION.
We want stories with fresh, innovative presentations that children will read and recommend to their friends.
We will contact prospective authors whose work we are interested in with 60 days of submission. We will try to send a personalized response.
When the submission window opens, please send your QUERY, a full SYNOPSIS, and the first 3 Chapters of your work posted in the body of the email.
NO ATTACHMENTS WILL BE OPENED, unless mutually agreed upon for full submissions.
Include the words: TROWBRIDGE BOOKS - Manuscript Title - your name in subject line.
