Submissions and Guidelines

Our guidelines are simple. We only accept electronic submissions by email. We only accept submissions by legal residents of the United States of America. Our contract states that we do not accept pre-published books whether published by traditional publishers, self-published, or published by Vanity presses.

The genres we accept are Christian Historical Romance, Contemporary Romance, and Contemporary Romantic Suspense. All others will be discarded. At this time we are not accepting novellas, or any work under 60,000 words.

We only accept Christian novels with no curse words, or words that are used instead of curse words. We do not accept books with miracles, workings of the Holy Spirit, or visions to foretell the future. There should be no explicit sex. Smoking of anything or drinking of any alcoholic beverage by the main characters are not something that shows a Christian’s growth. We would like to see the main characters grow as a Christian by the end of the book. We want books that you would enjoy sharing with your children and grandchildren.

Include your name, address, phone number, and email address with your submission. A submission should include a synopsis, a short bio, and the first three chapters of your manuscript. The manuscript should be completely finished.

Your synopsis should be in single space, New Times Romans, 12 point font. The header should have the book title and your name on it. Page numbers are helpful either at the top or bottom of your page. If you have an agent, add the agent’s name to the top header. The first three chapters should be double spaced in the same font as the synopsis.

Send all proposals to mantlerockpublishing@gmail.com. Use Proposal on the subject line.
