How to submit –

For fiction, please send the first three chapters and a very brief synopsis of your novel, (500 words) and a few lines of biography.

For non-fiction, I’d love to see 10 – 15 pages including a pitch: what the book is about, who your readership is, why the book is important. Include at least one chapter of sample text of the narrative, a book outline including chapter summaries and a brief biography
