Frequently Asked Questions

For picture books, we ask that each author send only one entry at a time. Once you have received a response from us, you may submit another if you wish. We do this to give as many authors as possible the chance to have their work reviewed.

For magazine, you are welcome to submit multiple stories at once in one email.

If we are interested in your manuscript, we will get back to you within three months. If you don’t hear from us, you may assume that we are not interested in publishing your work.

It’s easier for our editors to see the idea presented precisely as the writer intends in a dummy than by text description. Therefore, writers are welcome to submit a dummy, especially for a novelty book.
