For submissions of a manuscript for a new book, we prefer to receive a formal proposal by email before seeing the entire manuscript.
A proposal should provide a one-to-two-page synopsis of the project and the author's credentials. A formal proposal should consist of the following items:

Please attach your materials using Microsoft Word. Do not use PDFs for your manuscript or proposal. PDFs are acceptable only for previously published writing samples such as journal articles. Please ensure that there are no embedded photos in your MS Word manuscript, sample chapters, or proposal. Any photos or illustrations should be sent as separate attachments.
