Author Submissions

We accept unsolicited submissions and simultaneous submissions from published and unpublished authors. An agent is not required!

We are pleased to review submissions in most subject areas and genres, but are especially interested in manuscripts (in almost any genre) that teach, promote, and encourage understanding, tolerance, and peace; seek to improve the lives of people and communities in the U.S. and around the globe; promote environmental preservation; and promote and teach health and wellness.

In addition to the ideals above, we look for quality writing (of course!), as well as a compelling story or message. We also look for a strong author marketing plan. An author’s promotional efforts have a huge impact on sales, so we want to know that you’ve thought about how to market your book and are eager to do so. If you’re not interested in marketing your work, however, we may still offer publication under our sister imprint, Belle Isle Books.

Our Review Process

We review every manuscript we receive in full, on a first-come, first-served basis. Depending on our submission load, this process can take up to twelve weeks, so we ask authors to be patient. Once your manuscript has passed through our evaluation process, we’ll contact you with our decision.
