How to Submit
Submissions are open! When you submit, please send us:
Author biography and platform.
Tell us about you! Is this your first book? What’s your day job? Have you had any experience with publishing before? How will you support your book in the marketplace? Do you have a website, blog, business, or use social media?
Tell us what happens in your book in no more than 350 words. If it’s fiction, what are the major plot points and characters? If it’s non-fiction, what are the major concepts and issues explored? Did you know a synopsis is different from a blurb? Tell us how it ends!
What you need from us.
Do you need the whole package? Do you need just cover design, or just typesetting and printing and distribution? See our Services for more details, and tell us what you need to make an Impressum!
What are some other recent books like yours, and how does your book appeal to readers of those books? How is it different?
Sample chapter and/or chapter outline, or whole manuscript as MS word document or PDF attachment.
