Before submitting a proposal, we suggest you click around our site and take a look at the kinds of books we've published. This will help you gain an idea of what we're looking for. A strong book proposal consists of:

  1. A brief query (cover) letter
  2. A one-to-two page synopsis
  3. An annotated chapter outline
  4. Market analysis, including competitive research
  5. A sample chapter or two

If we are interested, we will get back to you within 4-6 weeks. Unfortunately, we will not be able to get back to everyone, as we receive thousands of submissions.
