Submission Guidelines

“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.” ~ Douglas Adams

To be considered:

Please submit through our Contact Us page, a two–three paragraph synopsis (maximum five hundred words) and the first twenty pages of your manuscript.

Choose one font style – New Times Roman or Courier. All text, including Title Page should be 12 pt., upper and lower case except the title of the book, which may be all caps.

For Manuscript:
Double-line spaced, with no added line spaces between paragraphs except for scene changes within a chapter. All margins should be Left Aligned, not Justified.
All paragraphs should be indented ½ inch.
No added spaces between sentences.
New chapters should begin on a new page.
Each page, except the title page, should have a Header with title, author, and page number. (This will put your page numbers at the top, so don’t forget to delete them from the bottom.)
Always include a title page. On the title page, center the title on the page (in all CAPS, if you wish). Underneath the title, type <Your Name>. In the upper left hand corner, type your name, address, email, and phone number.
Margins should be 1 inch on all four sides of the page.

For Non-Fiction Only:
Your Table of Contents page should include all book chapters in the order of intended presentation. The table of contents should use the same font and size as the manuscript. Chapter titles should be listed on the left side of the page, with a line of dots leading across the page from each chapter title to the page number where the chapter starts. If your manuscript is divided into sections, the table of contents should also list the page where each new section begins. Most word-processing programs will generate a table of contents for you, or you can do it yourself.
