What is the acceptance criteria?

As a general rule of thumb, we like to maintain a certain quality standard across our entire catalog. Furthermore, we don't like to oversaturate our catalog with too many books at any given time. For these reasons, we have to be selective about which books and authors we work with.

Promote Plan or DIY Plan

To maximize the chances of your book getting accepted to the Promote Plan or DIY Plan, we recommend:

  1. A well designed, genre-targeted cover ideally made by a professional cover designer
  2. A catchy genre-targeted blurb, free of typos and grammatical issues
  3. A book published in the last 30 days or - even better - with a future publication date
  4. A book which can be read as a standalone, preferably not in a middle of a series which necessitates readers having read prior books
  5. A well-proofread and edited manuscript, ideally by a professional
  6. Well-formatted manuscripts, ideally formatted by professional writing software (ex. Vellum) or by a professional
  7. Written in English

We may still accept your book if one or more of these guidelines are not met. 

The more guidelines that are met, the better your books' chances of being accepted. 

Furthermore, authors who have a proven track record with previously published titles are more likely to be accepted.
