Book Information

A successful writer takes feedback and learns from it. They educate themselves on how to write, what the industry suggests they do, and how best to tell their story. The only way to do so is through critique groups, partners and/or writing sites. If you have never had your work critiqued by peers or other authors (family and friends do not count), you must do that before you submit to us.

Need a site recommendation? We've got a few on the Writing Resources page.

Marketing Information

We want writers who can both write and be active in their communities, who are online and get involved, and who enjoy socialization. Why? Because being involved plays a big part in achieving sales. When you're willing to talk about your writing, people will listen. This doesn't mean you have to have thousands of Twitter followers or hundreds of Facebook friends. Are you a part of a book club? Do you volunteer with community literary organizations? Tell us.

Get started even before you're published. Our Marketing page offers some pre-assistance. Read about what we provide our authors, too.
