We accept manuscript submissions in all genres, however each story must come from a Christian worldview. The message can be overt or subtle.
We prefer full manuscripts. If you'd like to submit to us, please e-mail us (submissions at mountainviewbooks dot com) the following:
·The manuscript in .doc or .rtf format.
·A synopsis of the novel. This can be either a long synopsis or a shorter, back cover type of synopsis (better yet, send both!)
·A one-sentence summary of the novel if you have one. Think of a TV Guide or movie log line description. For example, our author C. J. Darlington went with this sentence for her latest novel, "On a quest to find her father, a young woman discovers she has two sisters who have no idea she exists." Imagine it as the first sentence on the back cover of the book that's there to whet appetites.
· Please also indicate the genre of your novel and a brief bio of yourself.
· We rarely publish manuscripts that have previously been self-published. If you have already published your manuscript yourself, please share with us your sales numbers and information as well as why you think your book is a good fit for us.
· Manuscripts should generally be 70,000 words or longer, unless they are YA or middle-grade. We rarely publish novellas or nonfiction, though we will consider both in special circumstances. Nonfiction titles can be shorter.
