Novel Submission Guidelines

What We Want 

Bestsellers! Or books we can make into bestsellers. We want fast paced books with heart-warming characters in gut-wrenching scenes that make readers want to cry or clap. We want novels so intriguing that people can’t stop reading even when their phone alerts go off. We want stories so thought provoking that we are still thinking about it long after the dramatic conclusion. Isn’t that what everybody wants?

Our Audience

Immortal Works publishes books for GENERAL AUDIENCES. We know the difference between Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult books, but we don’t care. No matter what the age of the main character, we only print books that appeal to everybody 12 and older. If they were to make your book into a movie, it should be PG-13… and maybe on the lighter side. We welcome all genres. We do not print books that would be offensive to conservative, religious, or minority readers. Make us cheer, not cringe.

Formatting

Please only query us after your novel is the highest quality you can make it with all the help you can get and multiple edits. No matter how good the book is, if we run into a lot of errors (grammar, spelling, inconsistencies in plot, poor character development) we won’t be willing to invest in your work. Honestly, it’s rare for somebody to be great at writing and bad at language.

Please do not send the full manuscript unless we ask for it. If we request your full manuscript, here is what we want it to look like:

  • Document Format: .doc

  • Document Title: Book Title by Author Name

  • Font: Georgia

  • Font Size: 12

  • Line Spacing: 1.5

  • Margins: 1”

  • Auto Return: 0.5” (no tabs)

  • No page numbering, headers, or footers

  • On the first page put:

    • Book Title

    • Author Name

    • E-mail Address (We don’t want your address or phone number yet.

How to Query

We only accept queries through our submission form. If you know our address and send us stuff by mail, we not only won’t accept it, but we’ll probably get a restraining order. 

We will answer every one, but usually in batches a month or so at a time. The first person to see your submission will be the Acquisitions Manager. If your book and writing sample look like something we want, it will be assigned to one of our amazing Acquisition Editors. She/he will request the full manuscript, read it, and decide whether or not to recommend it for publishing. If the company accepts the recommendation, the editor will send a contract and we’ll take it from there.

There are many reasons a book may be rejected. If it doesn’t fit our audience, or if we have another book very similar to it, we will reject it regardless of the quality of the book. Most of the time we’ll try to give you some feedback, but rejections are final.

If your book is as awesome as you think it is, we want to make it one of our IMMORTAL WORKS!
