Publishers with a web presence that works, if we don't find you, we invite you to find us. By "works" I mean that no "additional plugins" will be needed to actually read your site. Please note, simply by being listed on Tale Wins you will increase your page rank in the search engines. Having higher page rank means more book buyers will find your site from those search engines. IF you make your submission guidelines available on the web for writers to read we will provide more copy here so that visits will increase. That added traffic increases your page rank even more. In other words, it pays to be listed ACCURATELY on this page. Be sure to keep us posted on changes of address, etc..
It sure seems like publishers WANT to hear from EVERYONE by E-mail, except the author. If your company does accept queries from professional writers by electronic mail we will link to you twice -- from this page and from a page that readers frequent -- and thus increase your page rank yet again - where it helps you most. We will also give you up to three hundred words of introduction here so that actual visits will increase. Again, that improves your page rank substantially.
Writers, please note: We try to list only those publishers that the freelancer working from home might work with. If you know a Sweetheart Publisher that treats authors as if they were valuable contributors to their success, please send your endorsement to us at once so that we can give them a back pat on this page so other writers can know who the good guys in this industry are.

We prefer to receive query letters via email (to email@example.com), and we ask that you send full proposals through the mail. When sending queries by email to Jonathan, enter your last name and the book title in the subject line. (For example: "Jones - Nature vs. Nurture - query")
A query letter should be one or two pages long and give an overview of your book�s topic, along with information about you as an author (who you are, why you are the right person to write this book, evidence that you will be able to complete a high-quality manuscript in a timely fashion).
Please don�t go to the expense of paying for Priority or Express mail services. It usually takes us several weeks to review incoming proposals, so you will not be saving any time. Submitted materials will only be returned if accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
If we think that there is a reasonable chance that we might pursue your book, we will request a full proposal. A full proposal should include most or all of the following:
Please feel free to print your materials single-spaced and double sided, to save paper.

Inspire, literally to breathe life into, that�s what Conari Books aim to do�inspire all walks of life�mind, body, and spirit, and to inspire creativity, laughter, gratitude, good food, and all good things in life.
If you would like to submit your proposal to W. W. Norton by e-mail, paste the text of your query letter and/or sample chapter into the body of the email message. Do not send attachments.
We cannot accept complete manuscripts via e-mail. Keep your proposal under six pages. If you are submitting poetry, again, try to send fewer than six poems.
(Please remember that we do not consider books from the following categories: juvenile or young adult, religious, occult or paranormal, genre fiction such as formula romances, sci-fi or westerns, arts and crafts, and inspirational poetry.)
If you are interested in writing a book for our college division, please send a letter of inquiry rather than a full proposal.
All e-mail submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some authors are so determined to send an attachment they will attach a query letter of less than 300 words! It only takes two keystrokes to put the query letter or book proposal INSIDE the letter whereas it can take fifteen or twenty to attach the file. Do yourself a favor, download this book, AND read it.
