We look forward to reading your work and falling in love this Christmas season!


One thought on “Wishlist Wednesday

  1. I’m a literary agent trying to find your submission guidelines. Are they the same for all genres, or do they differ from genre to genre. I’d also like to know how long you’ve been releasing books. Have any of them sold more than 2,000 copies? I notice a note about memoirs–have you had success with any of them?
