MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
We are interested in unpublished or previously published writers in the following categories
- Science fiction
- Historic novels
- Modern Romance
If you have been published by a Vanity Press or any other press, but they have no claim on the e-book publishing of your work(s) or on further works by you, you are OK for possible submission as well. In this case, we will require a copy of the Vanity Press contract or your original contract you signed in order to be sure.
The process is as follows:
- You submit your manuscript in accordance with the following guidelines to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We will review your manuscript and determine if it fits within our content guidelines.
- Do not be concerned if you do not immediately hear from us. We are quite busy with manuscripts, but have no fear, you will hear from us in a reasonable period of time.
Manuscript Format Guidelines:
- The manuscript must be in .doc format, and submitted as a separate attachment to an email sent to Brukat Publishing.
- Use a single, clear font, 12 point size. The best to use is Courier or Courier New. At the very least, ensure you use a 12 point, serif font and something like Arial.
- Use a clear, black text on a white background.
- Include your name and contact information at the top left of the first page. Put an accurate word count at the top right. Put the title half-way down the page, centered, with “by your Name” underneath. Start the story beneath that.
- Don’t number your pages. The numbered page count will show up on the right in the Word format.
- If you write under a pseudonym, put that beneath the title, but your real name in the top left of the first page. We will not conclude contracts with a pseudonym.
- Left justify your paragraphs, with a blank line between each paragraph. Right margins should be ‘ragged.’
- Ensure there is at least a one inch margin all the way around your text. This is to allow annotation to be written onto a printed copy.
- Use double spacing for all your text.
- Start each new chapter on its own page, one-third of the way down the page. The chapter number and chapter title (if applicable) should be in all caps and centered.
- If you want to indicate a change of scenes within a chapter or episode, use an indicator, such as ***, between the paragraphs.
- Put the word “End” after your text, centered on its own line.
