1. The manuscript must be original and the author's sole work.
2. The manuscript must be previously unpublished. We want new, fresh books and not ones that have been published and marketed already. This is a new journey! There needs to be a new book!
3. We only accept manuscripts that are complete and polished. Please no works in progress.
4. We will accept manuscripts that have been submitted to other publishers. However, we do ask that you are up front with us, stating that you have also submitted elsewhere.
5. Please, no short stories at this time. All manuscripts must be full length. This means between 40,000 to 90,000 words.
In order submit your manuscript please follow guidelines below.
- In the subject line of your email please include "submission/name of your work"
- In the body of the email please include:
- Your summary should include:
