Submissions Policies and Process
While we are at present working with specific, established authors and within a limited initial schedule, we may at some point in the future open our submission process to first-time authors. We are most interested in developing a cordial and preferably long-term working relationship with the authors who sign with us.
We will not accept any unsolicited submissions, and we will return unsolicited submissions unopened or discard them. Query first with a one-page outline of the work you wish to submit, along with a list of your published work and credits. If, upon approval of a query, we solicit a submission, the submission must consist of a full book proposal in the case of a nonfiction work, or the first three chapters, an outline, and a synopsis for a work of fiction.
At this time, we are accepting open queries only and exclusively from accredited artist and author representatives and literary agencies, and only for established authors and artists. Agents who believe that their clients' work might match our publishing requirements may contact us with inquiries only--no manuscripts, outlines, or synopses without prior query approval, please. Agents may contact us via telephone, e-mail, or regular mail. Please bring submission queries to the attention of our staff by using the notation, "Acquisitions Editor."
