Do I have to have an agent to submit?

Currently, yes. We only accept agented submissions.

What should I submit?

Because we are a digital-first publisher, we like to work with authors who have a robust online presence, and who are committed to promoting and marketing their work. Therefore, along with your submission letter, please remit the following:

  • Include a bio (with links to any websites or social media).
  • Include a synopsis of your book and the full manuscript (both as separate, attached word documents).
When will I hear back?

We read everything submitted to us, however, because of the volume of submissions and the size of our team, we cannot give you a detailed response with editorial feedback. Submission emails are answered as time allows. 

I'm interested in the "White-Glove" Program.

While we do publish and specialize in Women’s Fiction, Romance, Fantasy, Historical Mysteries, Cozy Mysteries, and Suspense, we are not currently accepting new book submissions for any genre outside the above. Inquiries for the white-glove program are always welcome, however, as of January 2023, our program for backlist management will be by invitation only.
