Your Opportunity to Become a Published Author
As publishers we are vitally interested in all new material we receive. Just as you hopefully submit your manuscript for publication, we hopefully read every one submitted, searching for those we believe will be successful in the marketplace. Writing and publishing is a team effort. We need you to write what we can sell. Of primary interest to us are the following:

1. Unique approaches to popular current subjects and psychological, self-help books similar to our bestselling titles, Psycho-Cybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz (5 million copies), A Guide to Rational Living by Drs. Albert Ellis and Robert Harper (1.5 million copies), and The Secret of Overcoming Verbal Abuse by Dr. Albert Ellis and Marcia Grad Powers
2. Books that deliver strong motivational messages, such as The Magic of Thinking Big by Dr. David Schwartz (4 million copies), Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill (7 million copies), and Three Magic Words by U.S. Andersen (1 million copies)
3. Adult allegories that teach principles of psychological/spiritual growth, such as the classics, Illusions by Richard Bach, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry, The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino, The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield, Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman, and the more recent bestsellers, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, The Princess Who Believed in Fairy Tales by Marcia Grad, The Dragon Slayer with a Heavy Heart by Marcia Powers, and The Knight in Rusty Armor by Robert Fisher
4. Humor, horse training, and Internet marketing books

Read the bestsellers mentioned above or others that are similar to the book you want to write. Duplicate their winning elements in your own style, using a creative, new approach and fresh material, and you will have written a book we can catapult onto the bestseller list. We prefer approximately 30,000 words for adult allegories and 60,000 words for non-fiction works.

We look forward to receiving a submission from you, one that has been conceived and developed with market potential uppermost in your mind. We require a synopsis (for fiction) or a detailed chapter outline (for non-fiction), three sample chapters, and a self-addressed, stamped envelope. (Be sure to include your e-mail address. Do not e-mail submissions.) You are welcome to telephone or e-mail us for immediate feedback on any book concept you may have.
