Manuscript Proposal Submissions
Book Publishing Co. specializes in books that help promote a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Please look over our website to familiarize yourself with the subject areas we publish.
All of the cookbooks and health books we publish must be vegetarian; we prefer cookbooks that contain vegan, plant-based recipes.
To have a book proposal considered by our editors, please mail the following (no email submissions please):
- A detailed table of contents, including a paragraph description of the contents of each chapter.
- A sample chapter (for a cookbook, this can be the introductory chapter).
- For cookbook submissions, please include a list of recipe titles for the recipes you propose to include, plus six completed recipes covering a range of different dishes.
- A brief bio (include professional credentials, books published, or other writing credentials, teaching experience, awards, or anything else relevant to your submission.
In your cover letter, please include information on what avenues you have to publicize yourself and your book: columns in print or online newspapers, magazines, or newsletters; a regular television show; classes taught by you; or any other method for media exposure. We'd all like to be interviewed by Oprah or Ellen DeGeneres someday, however, focus on what you have happening right now--not on what you'd like to do in the future.
Also, please let us know why your book would be different from any comparable books in the marketplace.
