Do you have a manuscript?

We are accepting manuscripts from new authors!  If you would like to submit a manuscript for consideration, please review the following:

Content: We do not publish obscene, erotic, or otherwise offensive material.  If you have a work of high quality, we will consider publishing it.  We are looking for fiction, non-fiction, educational, self-help, children’s books, or even short stories.  If you have something different in mind, let us know!

Your book should be finished or nearly complete.  We strongly advise you to hire a proofreader.  While we do some basic editing, you will be ultimately responsible for grammatical and spelling errors.  Not only do spelling and grammar errors look unprofessional, but they can also become costly if errors are found after the proof copy is approved.

Length: A novel should be around 60,000 to 120,000 words.  Non-fiction and other types of books can vary in length, depending on the topic.  A novella should be between 20, 000 and 40,000 words.  Short stories can be any length.  If a children’s book is mainly pictures, it might have only twenty words!

Formatting: Do not worry about the title page, cover, or table of contents when initially submitting the manuscript.  What we want to see is your writing style, the quality of your work, and whether or not your book idea is marketable.  You can submit the entire manuscript, but an ideal submission would consist of a book synopsis, a list of chapters with a short summary of each, and a sample of the actual manuscript, such as the first chapter.  Don’t worry about extensive formatting–much of it will have to be redone anyway.  If we decide to publish your work, we will ask for the complete manuscript and will tell you tips to make the formatting process easier for us.

If you need to submit pictures, they need to be .png, .tif, or, if you have no other choice, .jpg.  They need to be at least 300dpi, but 400dpi or higher is preferred.  Feel free to use  .zip files for easier transfer.  For large files (>10mb) we may be able to work out an alternate method to submit.

Brown Wall Publishing reserves the right to reject any manuscript that we feel does not fit our company’s image or needs, at any time, for any reason.

Are there any fees?: We believe that there should be a choice to publish with no out-of-pocket costs.  See our “About us” and “Distribution” pages for more information.  There is never a fee to submit a manuscript.

If you understand all of the above and want to submit a manuscript for consideration, please create a package using the above guidelines and email it to publish@brownwallpublishing.com.

Thanks and happy writing!
