Submissions Information

We welcome nonfiction and fiction submissions that relate to Alaska and the Pacific Northwest: biography & memoir, history, humor, life in the North, Native American culture, true crime. We seek well-written, fast-paced, absorbing, compelling, and entertaining nonfiction including memoir and fiction manuscripts. We currently do not publish poetry, young adult or children’s titles.  

For All Submissions: Be sure that your cover/query letter and manuscripts are properly formatted in Microsoft  word. Please include your name, address, phone number and email.

Please submit your query letter which is a pitch about the work in a short paragraph and include what book category is your work.  Include three files: biography, the first three chapters and synopsis in Microsoft Word. We do not accept excerpts or synopsis that are pasted in the body of the email. To avoid confusion, each attachment MUST include the title of your manuscript. For example: THECROWSBEK-synopsis; THECROWSBEAK-sample50; THECROWSBEAK-bio&promo. 

DISCLAIMERS:

  • We do not consider new books that have already been published in any format, including eBook only. We do welcome reprints from established authors of titles that are currently out of print, unless they are already available in any eBook formats. Please have proof ready that the rights have reverted to you.
  • If you have signed a contract with another publisher, please let us know.
  • Do not submit manuscripts via a bulk email messaging service such as SendGrid, MailChimp, etc. None of these services can follow our submission guidelines.

Thanks for your cooperation. Authors and agents following our submission guidelines helps us review material more efficiently. Unagented and agent submissions are welcome. Authors should keep us informed if a manuscript is no longer available.

Generally, if we decline a manuscript, we felt it wasn’t a fit for any of the publishing imprints.  If you do not hear back from us, please understand that the sheer volume of queries can be overwhelming, please query us after four months and resend the query letter.
