Detailed Instructions for Proposal Submission
The publishing industry prefers to review a manuscript proposal instead of the unsolicited submission of your entire manuscript (book). This allows the editors viewing your submission to see the important items they desire at a glance...and if they remain interested they will read the entirety of your proposal. Carefully review the following information prior to writing your own proposal.
To assist you at every step, you will find helpful tips at the right side of the proposal form.
The manuscript proposal form has been designed to meet the review needs of our publishers. The form utilizes preformatted font and font size to provide an easy-to-read experience for the publisher. The publishers are focused on the content of your proposal and not on the presentation.
You will have the opportunity to choose whether or not you would approve of contact by a self-publishing member of this service.

You will also have the opportunity to choose whether or not you would approve of contact from a literary agent member of this service. Simply choose 'yes' if you permit an agent to contact you to discuss the representation of your work (at no cost to you). Visit our "Finding an Agent" page for more information on the role of this professional.
