Do you have a manuscript you think might interest us?

If you do, first review our Frequently Asked Questions, which contain our submission guidelines. If you can't complete every applicable question (including those about readership and marketing) with a thoughtful answer, you're probably not ready to submit a query. Please note especially the genres we do not publish.

We accept author queries on this form only. It forms the basis of our initial decision. Do not omit well-researched and creative thoughts on marketing your work to a realistically targeted audience.

Because of the number of queries we receive, and because several people may review each query, please allow as much as a month for our response. And, again because of the number of queries, we can neither initiate nor engage in conversations about manuscripts we will not be publishing.

If we respond positively we'll send you a password with directions for submission of sample pages from your book. If yours is a nonfiction manuscript, we will be looking for a projected (and detailed) Table of Contents, the first chapter of the book, and your qualifications for writing this book. If yours is a fiction manuscript, we will request a one-page synopsis and the first twenty or thirty pages of your novel.

Please note: This form requires responses to the questions marked with a red asterisk. If you have graphics, please complete those questions also. Before you click the "Submit query" button, you might want to scroll through the entire form: there will be a visible prompt next to any required information you may have missed. The form simply will not transmit without the required information, and without an accurate "captcha" entry to verify that you are a carbon-based lifeform, rather than a bot.

When your query has been successfully forwarded, you'll see an acknowledgment.

Thank you for your query. We look forward to reading it.
