**No new book submissions are being accepted until February 2015
A reading fee for all manuscripts of $95 USD must be included with your book submission and is nonrefundable. Please make checks (drawn on U.S. banks only) or money orders (in U.S. currency only) payable to Watermark Publishing and attach it to your cover letter with a paperclip. DO NOT SEND CASH.
Include a (typed) cover letter with your name, address, email, manuscript word count, and a few paragraphs about your book and where you would like to go with it.
If you would like confirmation that your manuscript has been received, enclose a self-addressed, stamped POSTCARD.
Please allow 4 - 6 weeks for us to get back to you with a decision and a plan for your book. If, by chance, your work IS NOT accepted by us, we will provide you with a summary of why we believe your manuscript is not yet ready for publication. If you choose to follow our suggestions and make the necessary revisions, you may send your manuscript back to us ONE more time without having to pay an additional reading fee.
If your manuscript IS accepted for publication, you will be provided with pricing, which will be determined by number of pages, word count, and what "kind" of book you would like to have published: PDF eBook, Kindle book, or traditional print book... 1, 2, or all 3!
Please have your manuscript edited; then revise, correct, and proof your work before submitting it to us. We are not in the business of rewriting books, and we will not accept any work that has not been edited. We offer our authors "light" editing only, which is $55 an hour, so please be sure your manuscript is the best it can be BEFORE you send it to us.
Reminder: We do not read or publish "dark material" of any kind. We appreciate and enjoy manuscripts that inspire, uplift, and add a touch of wonderful to our lives!
Once again, our reading fee of $95 USD is nonrefundable. Please take your time with the manuscript you are submitting for our review and send us your very best work!
