Create a folder and place your manuscript inside. Name the folder with your name, the date and manuscript title.

I only accept complete works. I will also accept cover letters, query letters, and synopses.
Note to perspective clients:
Since I use assistive technology called a screen reader, I put my comments in text.

I’ll also accept completed submission packages, which include a cover and query letter, and synopsis for the above genres. This package must be written for a traditional publisher of the above genres, not necessarily the one you’re using or plan to use.

Turn Around Time
I will take up to three manuscripts. Sample manuscripts will be responded to within one month.
Revisions are also accepted for a small fee.
