OFFICIAL SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
WANTED: Writers who can combine their PASSION for writing with CREATIVITY and an understanding of HOW TO WRITE, along with understanding, the draft you submit is only the beginning, not the end of the journey to PUBLICATION...

 
All submissions should be emailed query letters. If we like your idea, we will request the first five chapters of your book, or a few short stories from your collection.  If we like those initial submissions we will request the entire book.
Thoroughly edited material has the best chance of acceptance.  You don't need to pay someone to edit your material, but if you're serious about your writing, we do recommend it.  At a minimum, we suggest you have others read over your work for typos and grammatical errors.
All manuscripts should be in Microsoft Word and should be double spaced with an extra space between each paragraph.  THIS EXTRA SPACE SHOULD BE DONE IN MICROSOFT WORD, THROUGH YOUR PARAGRAPH SETTINGS, NOT BY YOU ACTUALLY HITTING "ENTER" TWICE.  There should be no indention at the start of each paragraph.
