A note about what we’re not looking for:

  • We do not publish children’s books, picture books, poetry, academic or religious material.
  • We are not able to consider any previously published material, without exception.
  • We love designing covers. Please do not submit a finished cover with your query.

How to submit non-fiction:

We only accept submissions by email. All submissions should include an author platform (unsure? See this or this).

  • For non-fiction: Paste your query letter, nonfiction book proposal, author platform, and one sample chapter into the body of your email to submissions (at) scribe-publishing (dot) com. Please do not attach any files.

As a policy, we carefully review all submissions and will reply to each one. Please be patient, and if you haven’t yet heard from us and have accepted another offer, we appreciate a note that you are retracting your query. The relationship between a publisher and an author should not be made lightly, as it’s a large financial investment on our part and should be a large time commitment, taken seriously, on your part.
