Below I've posted my submission letter for my latest manuscript: Adam & Eve. It will give you an idea of the submission process.

I’m pleased to submit my new historical novel, In the Beginning: Adam & Eve, complete at 82,000 words.
Many questions have been asked and speculated upon pertaining to our first parents, Adam and Eve, and what may have transpired in the Garden of Eden. Answers are difficult to come by, but in all my research I have sensed one thing more clearly than any other. Eve made an informed and intelligent choice. Does this mean that she and Adam understood all the ramifications of eating the forbidden fruit? Perhaps not all, but enough that she knew the choice had to be made in order to bring about the human race.
In Women of the Old Testament, Camille Fronk Olson quotes Deborah Sawyer, saying, “Let us put to death the Eve of patriarchal fantasy, and raise up in her stead the Eve who, created in the image of God, takes responsibility for human progress, liberates herself and her husband from the playground of paradise and engages with the real world” (13).
It is with this objective in mind that I re-created the story of Adam and Eve in fictional form, with the intent to bring to light the true nature of Eve and her choice in the garden—a choice which became the second most significant event in humanity, second only to the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
I would also encourage the evaluators to read the Preface, it will explain some turns of plot that take place in the first 100 pages. I look forward to hearing from you.
