  • Your book must solve a particular problem, provide proven solutions, or offer unique and fresh insights for readers.

Edit Your Manuscript Before You Submit

Please do your best to edit your manuscript before you submit it for review. If we find countless typos, mistakes, or plot holes in your manuscript, we will tell you that you need to work with an editor and invest more time and effort in the editing process. The submissions that tend to stand out and are most likely to be accepted for a publishing deal are those that are well-edited.

How to Submit a Manuscript

Simply send via the CONTACT US page of this site.

Please include your full name, a brief (2-3 sentence) synopsis or description of your proposed book and a link to your website(s) if applicable.

If you have written more than one book, please send the book you’re most excited about. Feel free to mention in your note that you’ve written multiple books, but only send us one manuscript for review at a time.

If we accept your manuscript, we can then talk with you about other books you’ve written.

If your manuscript isn’t a good fit for us to publish, feel free to send us another book after we’ve responded to your first submission. Our editors ask that you do not submit multiple manuscripts to us at one time.

NineteenTen Publishing is a facilitating publisher and exists to assist you in the process of publishing and marketing your book. Each submission is treated individually as a project and partnership between you and NineteenTen Publishing.  You will be contacted regarding your submission in person and via a phone call once it has been reviewed.
