Submit Queries or Manuscripts to
Due to high publishing standards and a
preference to take the initiative in developing book
projects, Pandora Press U.S. publishes only a fraction of
the unsolicited manuscripts received. Nevertheless,
submissions are welcome from writers who have carefully
researched Pandora U.S. publishing goals and believe
their writing may be suitable.
To submit, please begin by sending query (not complete
manuscript) to Pandora Press U.S., either by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to editor and publisher Michael A.
King, 126 Klingerman Road, Telford, PA 18969.
- cover e-mail or letter explaining
why you think your project fits Pandora U.S.,
your view of likely audience and market,
experience or credentials that make you a
credible author of this book;
- projected table of contents;
- if e-mailing, e-mail version or
summary of vita;
- if mailing, vita plus SASE
(self-addressed, stamped envelope).
Unsolicited manuscripts sent without
SASE may not be acknowledged or returned.
AFTER WE RECEIVE YOUR QUERY
In case you wonder what happens after we receive your
query. . . . On the cautious side, Pandora Press U.S. is
receiving a growing number of submissions, many of them
of publishable quality, yet cannot begin to release all
of them. Thus we are being forced to reject many
potential projects, even while often wishing we could
make space for the more promising ones. This means that
even if after receiving your query we see reason to
process it further, we will be careful not to imply
commitment to publish your book until we complete the
steps of our evaluation process. These include a.)
initial evaluation by the publisher or an editor; b.)
input from consultants (see Meet the People); c.) a final decision on likely publishability
based on weighing consultants' feedback; d.) receipt of a
publishable final manuscript, which is the stage at which
we usually offer a formal contract.
