Manuscript Submission Guidelines

Manuscripts may be submitted either in printed format, on a CD or flash card, or in e-mailed digital files (see all addresses below).

We encourage authors to send the following materials initially rather than the entire manuscript: title page, table of contents, introduction and perhaps one chapter, a CV or résumé, and a précis that contains a short outline and synopsis of the work, compares it with existing books on the subject, and speaks to the author’s view of the market for the book. If the work is not complete at the time of submission, include a probable completion date in the précis.

If sending the materials digitally, please put it in MS Word or RTF format.

If sending the materials in print format, please include a prepaid envelope if you expect to have the manuscript returned to you.
