SUBMISSIONS BEST PRACTICES

Ready to submit? We are seeking previously published or unpublished first chapters of original, high-quality popular fiction or non-fiction. Submitted first chapters must be well-written and engaging with enough of a storyline that will pique a reader’s interest to read further. Once accepted, it’s up to the authors to submit future chapters directly to the site.

The Basics:

Profile: Use author name or pen name.

Title: Do not use all caps.

Synopsis: This is your book jacket! Try to mention central theme, main characters and setting. First 200 characters (not words) catch our readers’ attention. This is where you let readers know you are worthy of their time. Good news! You can edit or rewrite this section as many times as you wish even after publication.

Genres: Choose as many that are applicable.

Tags: Include thematic keywords or any common thread in pop culture i.e, similar books, programs.

Please review the Instructions for Uploading Chapter Submissions document. Remove all prior formatting of the text before cutting and pasting to our site. Once the chapter is in the dialogue box, insert a line break in between each paragraph and line of dialogue.

Further questions please see our About and FAQs pages.

Good luck!
