Reading manuscripts is seriously one of my all-time favorite things to do.
There is something so delicious about getting to be one of the first people to read a new story, especially one from a fresh new voice or a manuscript that weaves a new, novel concept! Delightful crisp pages, freshly printed from our submissions manager, clipped together and warm on my lap in front of a blazing fire on colder-than-usual November rights in the Northeast---there's nothing better!
I could--and literally do--read these for days!
Right now, I'm busy working my way through our inaugural submissions queue at Black Spot Books, and eagerly discovering the first gems that will fill our 2018 production schedule. We are anticipating being able to release between 12 and 24 new single titles in 2018! There are so many amazing new projects in our pipeline, it's going to be so hard to choose (or we'll just up the release count!).
If you haven't submitted your manuscript yet, you should here.
As of now, I anticipate being able to send our acceptances beginning in late-November. Be sure to subscribe to the blog to stay updated.. I'll also be posting some tips and tricks for getting your query read and accepted, as well as some tips on how to build and promote your brand and your books. Stay tuned!
Fair winds and following seas,
