Temporarily Closing To Submissions

Due to the wildfire situation where I live in Sonoma County, California, I am closing to submissions temporarily. My family, home, and I are all safe. But we are on constant advisory for potential evacuation pending wind patterns and our community is busy with evacuees from neighboring affected areas.

Because the majority of my focus is on this new reality, I have fallen way behind. Any extra time or energy I have must be used to meet my client needs. Therefore I apologize, but I won’t be reading any submissions, including those already in my inbox, at least until the fires have been contained, and our community has begun to pick up the pieces. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.

If you do wish to withdraw your submission, please respond to the auto-response you received after you filled out the submission form. If you receive an offer of representation or publication please do keep me updated.

As of this afternoon, the situation in my neighborhood looks positive. My family and I have been lucky, but so many are not. If you are looking for a way to help, here is a gift card donation drive by a local club:

    Dear Mary,

    My warmest thoughts to you and your family and to all those in harm’s way. Your collective efforts to help each other are all that makes us better, and really makes us so human.

    Be safe, Chris
