Submissions

 

Thank you for your interest in ClearSky Publishing.  Based upon our unique business model and personal attention required for each author, we can only accept a limited number of new titles each year.  Our focus is primarily on emerging new authors who give a fresh and unique perspective across the classic genres.  We publish both fiction and nonfiction works in most all categories, but will not consider adult/graphic submissions.

For a submission to be accepted it must meet most or all of the following criteria:

 

  • We are looking for stories that are compelling
  • We are looking for stories that have a natural audience
  • We are looking for strong writing, and an original approach
  • We are looking for stories written with intelligence in concept and execution

 

 

We consider each submission on its own merits and base our decision on the quality of the work, the uniqueness of the approach, and its value to the reader; be it educational, inspirational or simply entertaining. Preferably, our authors will have some standing in their niche or area of expertise.

If you would like us to consider your work for publication, we will need some of the things that you have likely been thinking about yourself.  The more detail you can provide the better.

 

  1. Send us a brief description of your book explaining who you think will read the book and why they would listen to you. Why do you think it will stand out? Do you have a natural audience already established?
  2. Let us know the extent of your professional and social activities/ contacts that could help us promote the book. Tell us about relevant organizations you belong to/blogs you contribute to/speaking engagements past and future/Facebook Groups/writing groups etc., places where you can help promote your book. If non-fiction we usually try to promote you as an expert in your field, so let us know what you have already accomplished.  The more you can tell us about any market research you have already done and what marketing you can do going forward will be quite helpful.
  3. Send us a copy of your book (or at least a sample).  If your book is illustrated or has a lot of photography, include a sample or two of those.
  4. Send us a short bio or resume.
