  • A brief synopsis or abstract (1-2 paragraphs)
  • An author bio and/or resume noting the author’s credentials and previous publication credits (if any
  • A complete table of contents and an estimated length of manuscript in words
  • The author’s marketing outline, definition of the book’s target audience, a paragraph describing your books unique advantages, and a paragraph discussing the author’s ability and willingness to participate in marketing their book
  • A list of comparable or competing titles (including title, author, ISBN, release date/year and price point) and how your book is similar and different

Please fill out the form below with the information listed above to have your manuscript considered for publication.

Please note that we do not accept hard-copy submissions. We do accept both agented and unagented submissions.
