Frequently Asked Questions
Our Manuscript Evaluation
What is an unsolicited manuscript?
When an author sends their manuscript to a publisher without being asked to do so, it is considered an unsolicited manuscript or unsought-for work. Traditional publishers reject over 95% of these outright because a literary agent is expected to submit them.
What is a manuscript evaluation?
A manuscript evaluation is where our reviewers read your book to ensure it meets our publishing standards and determine if we want to publish it.
Why do you review my book?
All our published books are reviewed to maintain our standards and decide if we want to publish them.
How long does a manuscript evaluation take?
It depends on your book’s length & subject matter and the number of other manuscripts our reviewers are evaluating. Generally, we complete our manuscript review in a week or less.
What are you looking for during the manuscript evaluation?
This is your chance to have your manuscript in front of professional reviewers. Improve your chances of becoming one of our authors by having a well-organized, thoughtful, and complete manuscript. While it does not need to be fully edited or in a final format, it should show your work in the best light. Please note that hate speech is not tolerated.
