Submissions

Do you have a manuscript you would like us to consider? We accept unsolicited manuscripts! Here is what we are looking for:

  • Manuscripts that are appropriate for our target audience: Children (no picture books), teens, young adults, and families.
  • Fiction or well researched non-fiction.
  • A complete manuscript: You have finished the manuscript and had it critiqued. Critique groups provide valuable feedback which you as the author can incorporate as it fits your vision for your story. The story is polished and has been proofed for typographical and content errors.

If you are ready to submit a manuscript, contact us using the form above. Include:

  • Your name, email address, and phone number
  • Tell us if you have published elsewhere, and a brief history of your publications
  • The title, word count, genre (fantasy, mystery, romance, adventure, memoir, biography, etc.)
  • A synopsis (1-2 pages) of the story you are submitting, including the narrative arc, an explanation of the problem or plot, the characters, and how the novel ends. Copy and paste this into the text of your email, not as an attachment
  • A statement that this is your work and you have all rights to publish it

We know what it’s like to wait for an editor to respond! If we are interested, you will hear back from us quickly — usually within 1-4 weeks. We try to respond to all inquiries, whether we want to read your manuscript or not.
