  • You must include either the first chapter or the first 10 pages of the manuscript. Please do not send a chapter of your choice.
  • Please include a brief synopsis of the book and include the word count or manuscript length, and whether it is being submitted to multiple publishing companies at the same time.
  • Your manuscript must be complete and reasonably free of errors. This will ensure a much better chance of getting a second look.
