Anayia Cook has had a lifelong passion for storytelling in all of its many forms, and is particularly drawn to characters that make the reader feel deeply. She would love to see a young adult manuscript with character dynamics reminiscent of those in The Last of Us Part II in a contemporary setting, and children’s picture books that tackle big steps in a child's life (for example: the first haircut or first sleepover).

What Anayia Is Looking For:

  • I’m particularly interested in underrepresented voices and stories that are family-centric (including found families)

  • Children’s Picture Books

  • Middle Grade Contemporary, Fantasy, or Sci-fi

  • Young Adult Contemporary and Sci-fi

  • New Adult Contemporary (specifically, a college sports romance)

Anayia's Query Requirements:

  • Completed Manuscripts Only

  • Query letter plus first 20 pages and synopsis of the rest of the book

  • Please allow 3-4 weeks for response

  • If an author-illustrator, please include a few sample illustrations

  • Send query via email (see above)

Anayia is currently OPEN to queries.
