General Guidelines:

  • Concerning life accepts submissions by mail or e-mail. (we prefer digital submissions)
  • Please allow sufficient time for our representatives to review your proposal.
  • Given the volume of proposals we receive, we are unable to return materials submitted. Please do not include originals of any sort and always, I repeat, always keep multiple back-ups of your work.

    1. Which country are you in, lm a South African
    2. Do you need upfront publishing fees from authors?
    3. If the marketing must be done by the author, can anauthor hire a marketing company?
    4. How many pages should we submit
    5. Please state the fonts needed
    6. After submission, how long does it take to publish.
    Thanks

      Ngcwele, We are a USA based company. We do not charge any upfront fees from authors all of our revenue is made through the sales of the books. We do some marketing but the majority of books are sold through the authors marketing and yes you can hire outside marketing firm but we need to approve the firm first. If you want to you can submit the entire manuscript or a brief synopsis of it. Totally up to you. We prefer either New Time Romans or Ariel font size 12. Publishing dates are set as books come into the Que. It does take time as book covers need to be designed, editing needs to be done and formatting for both print and e-books need to be done. We are currently only looking for inspirational fiction. If you have a submission please follow the instructions on the submissions page.
