What do you want to see in my query?
Please include your name, email address, website, and any other social media platforms you use. Be sure to include your title, genre, word count, if it is part of a series, as well as a short blurb, and your bio. Please send a brief synopsis (no more than three pages) as well as the manuscript. Please send query in the body of the email and the others as attachments.
Will my book be edited?
Your work needs to be self-edited for grammar and spelling errors prior to submission. Upon signing a contract your book will be assigned an editor who will work with you to ready it for publication. We won’t change your story or your voice, but help it become as polished as possible.
If Accepted, how long does it take for my book to be published? And will it be in print?
We give the book up to six months from contract to release is a good guideline. It could go faster or slower, but we like to give every book the attention it deserves to make sure you and we are happy with it.
Can I use my own cover art?
We understand how important covers are to an author. We are happy for authors to give input on the process of choosing cover art, and may be willing to allow an author to provide cover art on a case by case basis. We know how much you love your story and that you have a vision for it. We welcome all authors to be involved in the process from initial choices to revisions. Ultimately though it will be up to our art director to finish the cover.
Will my book be in Print?
At this time we offer books in eBooks format and select books in Print format. We do contract for all print rights up front to avoid delays.
If I get a rejection, can I resubmit?
Yes, we do look at resubmissions on stories that we feel have potential but aren’t quite there yet. We will offer a Revise and Resubmit with suggestions as to changes we would like to see and ask that you wait a minimum of 30 days before resubmitting. If we offer a revise and resubmit, there is no time limit on it, work it as long as you need to. We’ll still be here.
If we have rejected a manuscript, please make sure you have followed our guidelines as to what we are looking for. If your manuscript still fits, we suggest you take no less than six months to revise before you resubmit.
Do you accept previously published books?
We currently will look at books that have been previously self published.
