Submit Your Work

At this time I am only looking for invite-only submissions. If you have been asked to submit work you can do so below. Please fill in and upload all relevant information in the form below. You will receive an email notification once your submission is received.

If you have finished a work, please send the full manuscript. If you haven’t yet finished the work but would like to know if it would be something we are interested in, send me a sample. Include a brief statement about which project this is for and what your submission is about.

Invited LT Project

If you are submitting for the LT Project you don’t need to worry about fees or traditional contract. Depending on the work submitted as a whole for the anthology a simple contract will be devised if it is determined the project will move forward to publication. At this point the only agreement is that all work submitted by you is your work, your photos, your illustrations and that you have the rights to submit that work. If there is another party involved, you need to disclose that in the submission statement. You can ignore the contract information below.

Contracts and Fees
For some authors that might be simply fees we charge for specific services you request, such as editing or manuscript formatting.

Quoted Fee and Simple Contract
For others, that might be full services based on a quote we provide. In that case, there is a simple contract. 

The 3rd way is a traditional contract. There may be circumstances where we agree to cover all costs to publish a finished work. In this case, there would be a contract with royalty fees, assuming this is not an anthology. However, not all work can be accepted under these terms. Should we be unable to offer a traditional contract, but we feel the work has potential an alternative offer may be made. This offer is known as a ‘partnership contract’ and is based on a contribution to be paid by the author to cover initial production and printing of the work.

Guidelines LT Project

The LT Project is different than my typical projects. Ignore the guidelines below. You have already been informed as to the type of work I am looking for in this case. If you cannot upload through this form you can use the email you have been provided.
In the case of the LT Project the format of the final book has not yet been determined and won’t be until all pieces are received and reviewed. Once it has been determined that the project will move forward, you will be contacted via email. Please be patient during this process. There is a lot going on in the last couple of months of the year and this project is not likely to be complete until early into 2024.
If some fields in the form below do not apply to you just leave them blank.
Guidelines – General
  • Please double space your work.
  • Always use a font that is legible and easy to read. Garamond or Times New Roman are preferred. Fonts such as Comic Sans and Broadway are not encouraged. However if the final book calls for unusual fonts, then leave them in the manuscript.
  • We confirm the receipt of all submissions. We will inform you of our decision regarding the work but please know that response times can take up to 6-8 weeks. Please remain patient during the review process and there is no need to contact us to inquire about your manuscript unless you haven’t heard from us after 8 weeks.
  • Please send work to us by email as a PDF or Word document. Please do not use postal mail.
  • If the work contains photos not embedded in the manuscript, you can place those on a Google Drive and send us a link. Please clearly state the information in the link and your name.  We will not open links that are not clearly identified.
