We are not accepting new submissions at this time.
We are looking for original, unpublished works. Out-of-print titles that are part of a series will be considered if the material is still current. We prefer unagented authors.
We work with our authors to grow their platforms and make their books a success. Together we will create well-thought out marketing plans. We expect our authors to take active roles in promoting their titles.
Please follow our guidelines carefully.
Mysteries, thrillers, suspense, or literary romance novels that set themselves up to be part of a series.
Creative fiction, literary fiction, and creative non-fiction are also of interest.
No excessive violence or explicit sex. Word counts between 40,000-90,000 words.
Check out our books or some of the following authors/series from other publishers:
Mystery / Thrillers: Robert B. Parker’s Spenser series, Diane Mott Davidson’s Goldie Schultz series, or Nevada Barr’s Anna Pigeon series.
Literary Fiction: Anne Tyler, Kaye Gibbons, Amy Tan, or Anita Shreve.
Creative Non-fiction: Anna Quindlen or Judith Viorst would be a good examples of what we're looking for.
Any of the above will give you a feel for our preferred styles of writing.
What should I send?
Email us a concise cover letter, a two to three-hundred word synopsis, and the first three chapters of your book to us at Editorial@BuddhapussInk.com.
