What We Look for in a Manuscript: Many potential authors wonder how we decide whether or not to accept a manuscript for publication or video for production. We welcome book and video ideas from veteran authors and first-timers alike, and our editorial staff gives all of them serious consideration. Although we award contracts to only a small percentage of the hundreds of submissions we receive yearly, you can improve your chances of becoming a author by reading this inside glimpse of how we critique a submission and decide whether it is worth the risk, and hopefully the reward, to produce, publish, and market it. There are many good reasons to submit your book or video proposal to us: we are the leading publisher in our field, we produce top-quality books and videos, and we pay royalties in full and on time. To assist you in your project, we ask that you observe the following guidelines when submitting a book or videotape proposal. To submit a book proposal to us, send an outline or chapter description along with one or two sample chapters (or the entire manuscript) to the address below. If applicable, samples of illustrations or photographs are also useful. Do not send a computer disk at this point, and be sure keep a copy of everything you send us. We are not accepting manuscripts as electronic submissions at this time. Please allow 2-6 weeks for a reply. If you would like your sample material returned, a self-addressed stamped envelope with proper postage is required.
