Submission Guidelines

WHO IS WHISKEY CREEK PRESS, and what do we do?
Whiskey Creek Press is a royalty-paying traditional publisher of fiction and non-fiction, and we publish in ebook and trade paperback formats. WE ARE ALWAYS OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS. Whiskey Creek Press charges NO fees of any kind to authors for publishing services. Editorial service, cover art design and production, paperback set-up fees, and ISBN numbers are provided at absolutely NO fee to our contracted authors. WCP authors may purchase copies of their print books at a substantial discount off the retail price.

HOW DO YOU SUBMIT YOUR WORK TO WHISKEY CREEK PRESS?

Please provide us with the following three REQUIRED items as your submission package:

1) A COVER LETTER outlining your manuscript, any past publications and experiences as a writer. In the cover letter, include the word length of your manuscript as well as a brief synopsis, one to two pages in length. Please summarize the beginning, middle and end of the story. Show the conflict and resolution as well as character description. Also include a one-paragraph synopsis (thumbnail sketch or “blurb”) of the story line and tell us what motivated you to write this story. Provide any past publishing history in detail, including books under contract with other publishers and titles out of print.

2) A BUSINESS PLAN, typically one page in length, detailing how you will promote and market your published manuscript, including any past marketing efforts for your writing career. Do you have a current author website? If so, include that, along with any other sites like MySpace, Yahoo, and so forth that you use to market your works. An active author website is mandatory for all WCP authors.

3) THE COMPLETED MANUSCRIPT itself. Do not send a few chapters. We want the manuscript completed before you submit to us. Do not mail the manuscript. To preserve the beautiful Cottonwood trees growing along the banks of Whiskey Creek, we ONLY accept submissions electronically.

Please email your completed submission package to: subs@whiskeycreekpress.com
