We will open for submissions March 1, 2023. These are the guidelines to use when we are open for submissions:
- We have varied interests. Ruth is interested in girls’ YA, mysteries, Holocaust-related nonfiction, and Westerns; Ann is interested in fantasy, sci-fi, thrillers, and steampunk.
- We do not accept porn, graphic erotica, or serious violence (especially against children), or textbooks.
- Submit by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Ensure your manuscript is double-spaced in 12-pt black, using Times New Roman or equivalent font. Label your file with your last name, and the title of your manuscript.
We will not accept any submissions which contain content created by AI. Our contract contains a clause indicating the story is written solely by the author submitting it.
For non-fiction –
Submit your proposal with a tentative table of contents.
For fiction –
We want to read your synopsis of at least 500 words. Yes, more is fine, but remember, a synopsis is a brief summary.. No, less is not fine. We also want a compelling query letter. Include why your novel is different from all others. Also, tell us what shelf it would fit on in a bookstore. Tell us some similar, but not exact, published works. Please include the first 30 pages.
We will reply as quickly as possible. We’re a two-woman shop, so we may take a bit longer if we’re inundated. If you haven’t heard from us, either rejection or acceptance, within two months, please email us at email@example.com.
