I'm coming at you today in my role as editor for WhiteFire Publishing with a fun announcement! WFP is planning to launch its young reader line, and we need submissions! We're currently seeking:
- Children's Picture Books (text or with illustrations)
- Middle grade fiction (both lower and upper)
- Young Adult novels (all genres)
WhiteFire is a small, traditional (royalty-paying) Christian publisher whose motto is "Where Spirit Meets the Page." We love books with a strong hook, engaging characters, and where the light of the Lord comes shining through. Faith themes don't necessarily have to be overt, but all our books must uphold our beliefs.
If you have a story you'd like to submit, please send the following to email@example.com:
A cover letter that includes your contact info, book title, genre, and word count. PLUS a proposal (Word doc attachment) that includes:
- A 1-sentence hook
- A 1-3 paragraph blurb
- Status of manuscript (completed? completed by?)
- Series info, if applicable
- Full bio, including sales history if any
- Marketing/promotional overview (to whom the book is targeted and how you’ll appeal to them)
- Comparable titles
- A 2-3 page synopsis (for full length books. Shorter for shorter stories is fine!)
- Sample. For a full length novel, this should be the first three chapters. For a shorter book, 1-2 chapters. For a picture book, send the complete text.
If you're an artist and would like to be on our roster of illustrators, please send a sample of your work to: firstname.lastname@example.org
