Submission Guidelines

We are delighted you’re considering working with us, and genuinely look forward to seeing what you bring to the literary world! Here are some basic guidelines that will help make all of our lives easier.

Manuscript Formats

Send us your complete, finished manuscripts in digital format. It makes the whole process faster and less expensive if we don’t have to mail copies of your manuscript back and forth.

Please use a standard book manuscript format when you submit your book to us. If you’re not sure what one is, here’s a good source. Except please, not Courier. Or Comic Sans.

Please submit the complete manuscript in .DOCX, .RTF, or .ODF format to submissions@paperangelpress.com. If you want bonus points, also attach a MOBI file (that will help our editorial team be able to read it faster).

Include the following in your cover letter/email:

  • Title of your book
  • Your real name
  • Your snail mail address
  • Your email address
  • Genre
  • Approximate word count
  • Synopsis

Non-Fiction Submissions

Due to the different requirements around non-fiction books, we would prefer to see a proposal before you send us your final manuscript. If you need a template to work from, we have some sample proposals available here you can use.
