No snail mail queries please. Pitch your project and talk about yourself: Do you have prior publishing credits? Attach the first three chapters and synopsis, in .doc, rtf or txt format to your e-mail. "We do not have a preference for exclusive submissions, but do appreciate knowing if the submission is simultaneous."
Other agents at Spencerhill are also accepting queries. The agency is currently considering submissions from published and un-published authors in the following genres: commercial, general-interest fiction, romance including historical romance, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, erotic fiction, category romance, literary fiction, thrillers and mysteries. Jennifer Schober is looking also for exciting YA projects and selected non-fiction projects.
