We are especially interested in working with authors on books that inspire readers to think creatively about making a positive impact on the world, via fiction or non-fiction, poetry or prose.
In addition to the fee, submit a synopsis of your work, the first twenty pages of your manuscript, and your author biography and your author biography and contact information. Please also submit a cover letter explaining where you are in your writing process: is your manuscript is complete? Has it already been edited? Submissions should be in Word files labeled with your last name, double-spaced, in a 12-point common font (Times New Roman; Cambria) with page numbers included.
Do not send your full manuscript at this stage; we will request it if we feel your book aligns with the mission and standards of Green Fire Press. At that point, we invite you to submit the full manuscript and a letter outlining your vision for marketing and distribution of the book, along with a non-refundable $500 reading fee that will be applied towards your $5,000 publishing package if and when you sign a contract with us to publish your book.
Based on our reading of the manuscript, we will give you detailed written feedback on your project, meet or Skype with you to discuss it, and place you in one of the three editorial development stages described on our website.
