How to Submit
If you think Snowy Wings Publishing might be a good fit for your next project, we’d love to hear from you! Please send the following materials to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- A short letter of introduction: Are you a traditionally-published author looking to branch into indie? A seasoned indie veteran looking to join a team? Or a new author looking to publish your debut novel? Let us know who you are and why you think SWP might be a good home for your book!
- A query letter for your project: Tell us about the book you’re hoping to publish, including a full synopsis. Please note that a synopsis is different than the sort of blurb you would find on the back of a book or on a retail listing. We want full details for the entire book, from beginning to end. For advice on how to write the kind of synopsis we’re looking for, please check out Awnna Marie Evans’ tips for querying.
- The first 3-5 chapters of your project: Roughly 15,000 words/25 single-spaced pages or so. Please make sure it’s polished to the best of your ability.
- Previously published books will be considered, though we do prefer that you are also launching new titles with us as well! Incomplete series would be good candidates for re-publication. If you were previously published through a publishing house (as opposed to self-published), make sure you have the full rights to your book and series before querying!
Please send all materials in the body of the e-mail rather than as attachments, with the subject Query: (Your Name/Title of Project), to ensure we receive it! We’ll get back to you within 4-6 weeks.
