We welcome submissions in the following format. Regardless of the project's development stage, please send a query letter, which should provide a summary of the project's content, a description of the author's experience, and any suggestions regarding the audience to whom the project might appeal. If applicable, please enclose a sample chapter; if the project is merely in the 'idea stage,' please submit a proposal and enclose other writing samples so that we can get a sense of your writing style, or of your artwork if appropriate. (If you are unsure of how to write a query letter or proposal there are books available at your local bookstore or library.) Queries should be sent to the attention of Nicole Smith, Editor.
