Please follow the guidelines provided on this site.

Do not send the same proposal to all of us at the same time. We tend to talk to each other so a writer who spams all of us would be considered unprofessional.

If we are interested in your project, we will be in contact within six to eight weeks or sooner. If we do not think your project is something we can represent, we may or may not be in contact, depending on current workload. If you sent an e-mail proposal and don’t hear from us within 60 days, you can assume we are not going to pursue your project.

Hard copy: If you send a hard copy proposal please include an SASE or you will not get a reply. However, if you do send a hard copy proposal and an SASE you will receive a response.

E-mail: If you are sending an e-mail submission please include it as an attachment in a Word document or a PDF (do not paste the proposal into the body of your e-mail).

If you are wondering how to best address the cover letter, read this article. There is no need to call our office to ask that question.

International authors frequently ask how best to contact us because of the challenges of sending hard copy through the postal system from overseas. We have a number of Canadian clients, one in New Zealand, and another who lived in Panama for a year, but all the rest are based in the United States. If you are from another country you can send a proposal via e-mail to any of our agents but let us know that you are living in another country. Do not include the text of the proposal in the body of the e-mail. If we are interested we will contact you within six to eight weeks. Otherwise you can assume that yours was not something we were looking for.

The Steve Laube Agency phone number: (602) 336-8910.
(please do not call to pitch your idea. We’d prefer to see the actual writing first. But read the Guidelines page to see if it is something we are interested in.)
