MacKenzie is interested in both established and first time authors of fiction and non-fiction.

 

I am always interested in:

  • fiction: women’s fiction, romance, new adult, young adult with crossover appeal, historical fiction, female-driven mystery, thrillers, and crime.  
  • non-fiction: fashion, food, exercise, diet, and design; cookbooks (especially healthy eating and baking and specialty diet/nutrition); pop psychology, self-help, and relationships; and true crime

 

99.9% of the time I am not interested in:

  • science, fantasy, westerns, philosophy, sports.  

 

I am never, ever interested in:

  • Children's / picture books, middle grade, screenplays, poetry, graphic novels / comics

FAQ:

 

How long will it take you to respond to my query?  

If I am interested in additional material you will hear from me within 2 months (usually less!).    

 

How long will it take you to read my manuscript?  

I try very hard to read all manuscripts within 3 months.  

 

When should I follow up with you?  

3 months, unless you have an offer from another agent or a publisher -- in which case I do definitely want to know.  

 

Are you interested in self-published or indie titles?  

Sometimes!  It is very important that tell me in your query if you have self-published your book.  If your project is for sale in any format on any site, or is posted on WattPad or any similar website, please both provide: a link to where I can find this title; sales data; and a brief explanation of your decision to self-publish.  

 

Are you an editorial agent?

Yes!  Yes!  Yes!  I will, have, and definitely enjoy devoting time to editorial work both before work is submitted and throughout the formal editorial process.
