Edit Your Manuscript Before You Submit

Please do your best to edit your manuscript before you submit it for review. If we find countless typos, mistakes in your manuscript, your chances of getting a book deal are slim. The submissions that win and are accepted for a publishing deal are those that are well-edited. A well-edited manuscript also includes the format in which you send me your work. It should be: 

  • In one document 
  • 12 point font 
  • Double spaced 
  • Normal margins
  • Times New Roman ( i.e. no fancy text)
  • Includes book matter (dedication, table of contents, acknowledgment, etc)
  • Proper spacing ( Mainly for poetry books. Please have it formatted the way that you want it to look in print.)

How to Submit a Manuscript

Simply fill out the Manuscript Submission Application. Afterwards, we will send you instructions for submitting your manuscript. Be sure that your manuscript is either .docx or .doc format. We will not look at it if it’s a pdf.  Please do not email your manuscript to us directly before filling out the MSA formIf we decide to publish your manuscript, we will then have a conversation with you about potentially publishing your submission AND any other books you’ve written. If your manuscript isn’t a good fit for us to publish, feel free to send us another book after we’ve responded to your first submission. Do not submit multiple manuscripts to us at the same time.
