Trade Submission Guidelines

Submissions are accepted by mail or email, but we do prefer email. We will not be responsible for materials sent in the mail. Do not include materials on CDs or USB drives; these will not be viewed. Anything received in the mail will be recycled after it is considered.

Below are email links by imprint. Please submit your proposal to just one editor. If your project is not a fit for him/her, it will be forwarded internally to the appropriate editor.

Because we receive so many unsolicited manuscripts, we aren’t able to respond to all submissions. Please give us three months to review before following up and remember to include your email address with your submission.

Please include the following in your proposal:

  • A description of the book.
  • A table of contents, a sample chapter, and sample photographs or art if applicable.
  • An overview of your platform, experience, and online presence (tell us how you will help promote the book).
  • A market analysis––Who will buy this book? Why publish this book now? Include a list of current competitive titles.
