Now What?

Guidelines

Submitting your manuscript to Bookflurry Inc. for consideration is simple. Just ask yourself what you would like to show up in your inbox? You may send us a few chapters, a synopsis, or a full manuscript.

While we do understand that everyone has different abilities and shortcomings with ever-changing technology, we also must put in place some initial guidelines for our authors so that we can best get a start on your book's long journey.

We don't penalize clients for their ignorance in technicalities because we are suppose to be the professionals, but we would like to freely educate you in an attempt to save yourself time in the future. Because, really, our goal is for you writers to do what you do best- and that's write!

If you have questions about our formatting please feel free to email us with them! We prefer to get your manuscript right, rather than you shooting blind and looking careless.


Once you have submitted your book to Bookflurry Inc. and are confident it is something that may fit in here, what can you do while you wait for our response? Why, the same thing we are doing, read, of course! Try reading one of our already published books and review it like we are doing for yours.

We endeavor to respond to all of our submissions. There is nothing more grueling than receiving piles of form rejection letters (though we know how thrilling they can be). If your book isn't a perfect fit for us, we will still have loads to talk about.

Keep busy building your platforms while you wait. Work on your Facebook author page, keep up on your author Twitter account and your Instagram. If you don't have them, make them and start logging activity! Work on a website, or a blog. Just keep writing and keep reading, that's what this industry is all about.


Thank You for Considering Bookflurry Inc.

We look forward to a long and productive publishing relationship with you!
