If the guidelines don't specify what's expected in a submission package, what is the norm?This is what I like to see and it would probably satisfy most publishers who don't specify what they want.
- Query letter—1 page
- Outline/synopsis—a chapter by chapter breakdown of the basic plot line; 2 to 3 sentences per chapter. And yes, I want the ending.
- First three chapters
- SASE (I actually prefer to reply by e-mail but some publishers prefer the letter)
