"I am drawn to stories that have broken and flawed characters with complicated family structures and histories, but whose voice is honest as they attempt to navigate difficult relationships and circumstances. In non-fiction, I enjoy books that focus on social justice issues, the south, and history-based narratives that deal with women, the Civil Rights era, and cultural movements."

She is not interested in: Romance novels, science and technology oriented books, horror, and pop culture or fads.

How to submit: To query, please send a letter, brief synopsis. and the first 5-10 pages of the manuscript/proposal pasted into the body of the email to info@fletcherandco.com. Please do not include email attachments with your initial query, as they will be deleted.

Erin McFadden of Fletcher & Company

Erin attended Rutgers University-New Brunswick, and studied English Literature and Economics, with an Art minor.

What she is seeking: Nonfiction and fiction. "Social sciences and narrative/journalistic nonfiction stand next to capital-L Literature on my bookshelves, with some memoir and essays spread throughout to bridge the gaps. For fiction, if the characters & story are suited for it, bring on a challenging structure (think Only Revolutions), epic length (Infinite Jest), and complex intergenerational webs (Homegoing), I'll take them. Striking imagery is my weakness, especially with an emotional punch to match. And in both fiction and fact, books that fully illuminate a world - especially a vivid, unfamiliar one - are the ones that stick to me."

She is not interested in: Police dramas, High Fantasy, romance, picture and middle grade books. "I’ve also read enough dystopia to last me until the next election cycle."

How to submit: To query, please send a letter, brief synopsis. and the first 5-10 pages of the manuscript/proposal pasted into the body of the email to info@fletcherandco.com. Please do not include email attachments with your initial query, as they will be deleted.
