Do you have a manuscript you’d like to submit to WhiteSpark? We’re currently seeking:
- Children’s Picture Books (text or with illustrations)
- Middle grade fiction (both lower and upper)
- Young Adult novels (all genres)
As with all WhiteFire family books, we’re seeking stories that embrace the motto of “Where Spirit Meets the Page.” We love books with a strong hook, engaging characters, and where the light of the Lord comes shining through. Faith themes don’t necessarily have to be overt, but all our books must uphold our beliefs.
If you have a story you’d like to submit, please send the following to email@example.com:
A cover letter that includes your contact info, book title, genre, and word count. PLUS a proposal (Word doc attachment) that includes:
- A 1-sentence hook
- A 1-3 paragraph blurb
- Status of manuscript (completed? completed by?)
- Series info, if applicable
- Full bio, including sales history if any
- Marketing/promotional overview (to whom the book is targeted and how you’ll appeal to them)
- Comparable titles
- A 2-3 page synopsis (for full length books. Shorter for shorter stories is fine!)
- Sample. For a full length novel, this should be the first three chapters. For a shorter book, 1-2 chapters. For a picture book, send the complete text.
If you’re an artist and would like to be on our roster of illustrators, please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- a sample of your work (however many you feel gives a good sampling of your range)
- your rates, flexibility, and whether or not you’d consider working for royalties or only on a paid-upfront basis.
- contact info
We’re creating a file of illustrators right now that we can reference as needed.
