I feel like this is a longshot but felt it still prudent to ask the question nonetheless--does Paizo allow for up-and-coming authors to try their hand at writing novels set within their universe?
Generally, not without direct permission. There's nothing to stop you from writing Fan Fiction, or you can publish on Pathfinder Infinite and make a little money. That's a third party deal with DriveThru RPG. Maybe look into it. But writing something then presenting it to Paizo is not okay. Also, selling anything you write outside of a third party publisher is also breaking Copyright law.
If you have a body of work, pitching yourself as a potential writer to Mark Moreland is not a horrible idea. That's how I got my start writing Pathfinder Tales. The upcoming novel, to be published next year, is, I think, kind of a test market to see how things go.
Best of luck!
