How to submit

Manuscripts can be submitted in complete form or as a partial manuscript including a full proposal or book outline.  Please be sure to also include the following items in your submission:

  • Author biography
  • Author platform – how you can support your book (website, blog, business etc)
  • Synopsis (500 words max)
  • Competitor analysis
