Submitting your Work
To fully evaluate your work for possible publication, we need to review your completed manuscript to determine the quality of your work, your professional writing experience, your marketing plans, and your ability to collaborate with our team. We prefer manuscripts with a range of 20,000 – 90,000 words, though we will consider longer manuscripts of quality.
Before you submit, please study our website and be aware of our two publishing models: traditional and co-publishing (a.k.a. hybrid publishing). Take a look here before you submit.
Then fill out the form below and attach your completed manuscript (doc/docx files preferred, pdf files accepted). If you have trouble with the form or your file is too big, you may email your query letter (including your bio, marketing plan, audience, genre, number of words, previous book sales) and manuscript to email@example.com.
We will respond after review if your work is accepted for publishing consideration. We will not respond if it is not accepted. Regardless of the outcome, we wish you the very best of luck and thanks for submitting.
YOU MUST BE 18 OR OLDER TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED WORK. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PROPOSALS WITHOUT MANUSCRIPTS. YOU MUST SUBMIT THE ENTIRE MANUSCRIPT AS ONE FILE TO BE CONSIDERED. DO NOT SUBMIT SEPARATE CHAPTERS. We are not accepting children’s picture books or poetry at this time.
We may occasionally send you periodic newsletters, including special announcements and updates. You may opt out at any time.
Have you looked at our publishing models?
We publish two ways.
- This option is normally only for seasoned writers (with or without an agent) with superb work and a verifiable track record of sales and marketing success. The term traditional means that the author will not pay for any development costs or fees, and will typically be offered an advance payment on royalties.
- This option is best for emerging writers with high-quality work desiring a professional-level publishing experience. Writers accepted into our Emerging Author Program are positioned to land a traditional deal on subsequent books. Those best suited for this program are motivated and collaborative, and receive the same level of editing, creative development and marketing as our traditional authors.
Here’s our gift to you.
