Are we the right publisher for you?

Let's check!

-During editing, you will receive critiques from the publisher and editorial team. This process is to help put out the best book we can. If you struggle to take constructive criticism, we may not be the right fit.

-We don't publish your genre.

Query Thoughts

Keep in mind we are a small publisher, meaning we can only accept a few authors each season to give them the attention they deserve.

That said, we will have to pass on a lot of manuscripts. Please do not let that deter you. Keep writing.

Brittany will personally read and consider each query and do her best to respond thoughtfully to each one, but if time does not permit and it has been four weeks or more, assume we will not be requesting a full manuscript.

You many nudge us, but do so politely.

We do work full-time and have a lovely daughter and two kooky cats to care for.
