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.
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.
