Queries will be responded to by:

Keep in mind we are a small publisher, meaning we can only accept a few authors each season to give them the attention they deserve.
That said, we will have to pass on many manuscripts.
Please do not let that deter you.
Your words matter.
Brittany & Tara will do their best to personally read and consider each query. They will also try to respond thoughtfully to each one, however, if time does not permit, and it has been six weeks or more--assume we will not be requesting a full manuscript or offering a contract for publication.
If we have requested a full and it has been six weeks or more you may also assume we will not be offering a contract for publication.
You may nudge us or inquire if you may resubmit in the future, but please do so politely.
Brittany does work full-time outside of LCP and has a lovely daughter and three kooky cats to care for.
