Are you a YA writer? If so, Strange Chemistry, an imprint of Angry Robot is looking for unagented submissions. Strange Chemistry is a global imprint, based in the UK, and publish high quality Young Adult science fiction, fantasy and everything in between. Physical and eBooks are as standard, and since being launched in September of last year, they have built up a reputable list of authors.
So, what are the details?
Your overall book length should be between 70,000 and 100,000 words, but they do allow flexibility, and of course your manuscript should easily fit into the Young Adult genre. If your manuscript fits into this, and is as polished as it can be, then get in touch with Amanda Rutter, editor in charge of the Unagented Submissions Entry 2013. You will need:
– one page, containing your name, address, social media outlets and a one line pitch for your novel
– two pages, containing your two page synopsis of your novel
– 5 chapters of your novel, or 10,000 words (depending on the length of your chapters)
You can check out their unagented submission page for more details and email them your submission in Microsoft Word or PDF to SCsubmissions[at]angryrobotbooks[dot]com
All I can say is this is a must for any wannabe YA writers out there – you really don’t have anything to lose with sending them your manuscript. You never know, if they love it, you could be well on your way into print!
