Submission guidelines

If you are a writer or author who has written a book that matters we would love to consider your work for publication. Please follow the guidelines below. Non-compliance with these simple guidelines will result in automatic rejection.


Send your proposal in three parts:

1)      A cover letter that tells us about your book, about your qualifications as a writer-- particularly as a writer on this subject--and about the audience who will buy it.

2)      A table of contents for non-fiction works or a one-page synopsis for fiction.

3)      The first 30 pages of your completed book. Do not send entire manuscripts, but do not send an inquiry before the book is complete.

We will reply to your initial inquiry within five working days to confirm receipt, and will typically review and act on your manuscript within four weeks.
