Why an enovella with Leap Books SHINE?

- Introduce readers to your young adult fiction brand / style / tone / voice / worlds by giving them a short, fun, affordable read. Snag their interest in your other projects by offering a tale sure to SHINE

Thanks for the question. SHINE respects diversity. If the writing, plot, characters, and overall entertainment value are there - we'll be interested.

Best,
Judith

Hi Judith! This is really exciting. For unagented authors, how would you prefer submissions be framed? Query first? A sample attached?
