Submitting your manuscript to a publishing house is a simple and necessary step on the road to publishing your book. When you submit your work, it is important to take your time so your submission is its best version possible. Read all instructions on the submissions page to ensure that you meet the publisher’s requirements. Take your time. Remember, your submission is a chance to make a great first impression.
So, you’ve submitted your manuscript, what’s next?
Every single manuscript submitted gets an adequate amount of attention.
Once your manuscript has been submitted, one of our submission team members will review it. Reviewing your submitted manuscript will consist of reading it and making detailed notes about all aspects of your manuscript. This process usually takes a few weeks in order to give your submitted manuscript adequate time, thought and review.
After your submitted manuscript has been reviewed, you will be contacted by one of our submission team members with feedback on your manuscript, editing suggestions, and possibly the opportunity to have your submitted manuscript published!
