For New Idea Press, we are interested in books that explore ideas that haven’t been written about and fresh perspectives on ideas that have been written about. We’re looking for books with a well-defined target market.

Although we will consider a complete manuscript, we prefer to receive queries with strong outlines and abstracts. However, if you are submitting a memoir, please submit the full manusript.  To have your proposal or manuscript considered for publication, we need to receive:

  • A brief synopsis or abstract (1-2 paragraphs) unless you are submitting a memoir, then please submit the entire manuscript. Please read our general Submission Guidelines and follow the formatting requests outlined.
  • 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.

We value each submission we receive, and we want to work with passionate authors. We strive to give each manuscript we receive fair consideration and to get back to each submission in a timely manner. You can expect to hear back from us within three weeks of submission.

Free Speech and Why You Should Give a Damn

$19.95

Written by Jonathan Zimmerman, with cartoons by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Signe Wilkinson.

Across the political spectrum, Americans have demanded the suppression of ideas and images that allegedly threaten our nation. But the biggest danger to America comes not from speech but from censorship, which prevents us from freely governing ourselves.

In this brief but bracing book, historian Jonathan Zimmerman and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Signe Wilkinson tell the story of free speech in America: who established it, who has denounced it, and who has risen to its defense.
