For all works of non-fiction, email a succinct query letter telling us about your book, who will read it, and why you are the best person to write it.
If we are interested in your non-fiction book, we will invite a complete proposal—Overview,Market Analysis, Competitive Analysis, Promotion Plan, Author Bio, Table of Contents, Chapter-by-Chapter Synopsis, and 20-30 consecutive pages of your manuscript.
We recommend that you get a copy of Game Plan for Getting Published, a $14.95 download on Amazon.com, if you have never done a proposal and have no idea what goes into one or why you are doing it. Do not send a manuscript in lieu of a proposal.
For all works of fiction, email a short synopsis that provides the basics of the story: beginning, middle, and end. Please don’t drive us nuts by posing a question like “Will she kill him or won’t she?” We need to know what happens in the story.
Do not send unsolicited manuscripts to the company offices. We have far too much paper to recycle already.
