We usually only publish three or four books a year, so WE DON'T TAKE SUBMISSIONS (in the traditional sense) any more. This may seem strange, but believe me when I say, We know what we're looking for and we know where and how to find it and we have a good healthy list of writers we want to work with already. If you want to say hi and that you like us and you want to be on our radar, send us an email and introduce yourself. If we feel the need to take submissions again, maybe we'll have a contest someday, but for now we've got too much on our plates. Thank you for your understanding.
