Please read and adhere to our submission guidelines

We do not accept simultaneous submission. If you have submitted your manuscript to another publisher, please wait for a response from them before submitting to us. Our response times very per imprint and how busy the submissions area is. Currently, Love Knot Books has the fastest turn around at one month.

You are required to supply your real name in the submission. Only fill out the pen name area if you write under one.

Your manuscript should not contain anything but your manuscript. Do not include explanations, cover art, or anything else in the manuscript submission. You own the copyright to your work, so including one in the manuscript is not needed.

Your manuscript title should be just that, a title. Please do not put anything else in the field.

The pitch is just that, a short little blurb about the manuscript that will entice us to read and except it. Keep it at or under 250 words.

Your logline is an ultra short description of the story. It should not contain character names. Example – Two young lovers from rival families in medieval Italy make the dangerous decision to elope when their marriage is forbidden by both families.

Your dramatic question should leave us wanting to know the anser. Example – Will Romeo and Juliet find love and happiness together despite the fact that their rival families have vowed to keep them apart?

About you is a short little blurb on you. It is something we’ll build your “About the Author” page in the printed book.

We strive to respond to everyone who submits a manuscript to us. You should receive an email in a few days of submitting to advise we have your manuscript and will be in touch. If you do not receive an email in a week, check your spam filter before submitting a question through our contact form.

Note: We do not accept erotica or proposals.

We track IP addresses in the form. The manuscripts are not saved on the site, but immediately emailed to our submissions officer.

Your manuscript must be in Microsoft Word format and a DOC or DOCX file. We prefer DOCX, which is becoming the standard.
