Melissa Richeson is open and accepting picture books, middle-grade books, and for young adult, Melissa typically looks for high concept contemporary or historical manuscripts, but a light scifi or a fantasy in a fresh world can draw her in, too. Also sweet romances with authentic dialogue and page-turning stakes. Nonfiction projects for all ages are welcome as well. Melissa is not a good fit for horror, paranormal, or graphic violence. Less nightmares, more daydreams, please. Our response time may be anywhere from two to eight weeks (and possibly longer), depending on the projects at hand. If we find that we are not able to represent your project, we will always attempt to provide appropriate feedback of some sort, realizing the path to publication is a journey, and not always a fast one!
