Submissions

The process of publishing a book can be very long and exhausting. However, we, at Horizon Publishing Group, are providing you, in the following, a step-by-step detailed information on how to make sure your submission adheres to our guidelines in order to see your work published in a short time.

 

The first step in publishing your book with Horizon Publishing Group is reading and understanding the following section "A", then, if you decide to submit your work to us, read the following section "B" on "How to prepare your submission".

 

A - Submitting Your Proposal

 

  • A covering letter that addresses the following:

  • How you came to write the book.

  • A note on your view of the potential market/readership of the book.

  • List similar books that have been published or are in print and explain how your proposal differs from existing books in the market.

  • How comparable books have sold in bookshops.*

  • List any additional markets that your proposed book could sell in, besides bookstores.

  • How you would promote your book, including any of your relevant media or corporate contacts or other contacts that would help us in marketing your book.

  • Who is your intended audience? What sections of society would be interested in what you have written?

 

*If you are unable to provide us with the information marked with '*' you can disregard it. Nevertheless, we strongly recommend you provide the information required as this will help us to plan the pub;ishing of your book.

 

  • A synopsis of the entire book (Not more than two-pages long).

  • Submit only the first three chapters of your book, and a synopsis of the entire book. Do not send query letters as we practically cannot assess your work without a portion of the manuscript. (However your synopsis is good, it is impossible for us to assess the quality of your work for example from chapters 1, 25, and 37).

  • A current Resume including education, profession, work history, membership and affiliations, and previous publications, if any.

 

Although all possible care will be taken with all submissions, however, Horizon Publishing Group bears no responsibility for the loss or damage of material received. 

 

Please note that HPG will not return any material received and we only accept submissions by email to submissions@horizonpg.net. Therefore, no hard copies required.
