Thanks for querying me, but unfortunately I’m going to pass on
representation. I agree that your story sounds right up my alley! But it’s
just too long (about 20,000 words too long). It would be difficult to sell
this because of that.
I’m sure glad no one told Jo Rowling that without even trying to market her 700 page novels (with no pics) to 10 to 12 year olds. I’m thinking that 110k word novels for 20 and 30 somethings is a typical length (about 300 to 340 pages). I’m just a bit frustrated right now.
