Tips for Writers: Our best advice to any author seeking a publisher to review their submission is to take the time to read the submission guidelines on their site. Our guidelines give detailed information as to what we look at in a submission, as well as what to include with your fiction or non-fiction submission. Much of our time is spent answering questions that only indicate the author hasn't taken the time to examine our site. We also recommend that every author take the time to look at the other books offered for sale on a publisher's site, including sample chapters, to get a feel for the publisher. Just as publishers analyze author's submissions, so should authors analyze pontential publisher's sites and existing books.
