Submission Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in Legend Writer Publications. We do not set up in-person or telephone meetings with prospective authors. Please read the following for advice and submission information.

Information For Writers
Most writers, regardless of the genre they’ve concentrated on, will want to share their work with the public by having it published as a book. The first and most important thing is do your own research. Find out about the various ways of getting your book published, the roles of publishers and literary agents, and exploring the options of self-publishing and acquiring a distributor. The Internet is great for this, as is the Writer’s Market and other books of this nature.

Establish who your ideal reader is, and what the market is like for your book. Are there already other books similar to yours available? The more research you’ve undertaken into the market, in addition to the processes involved in selecting and publishing a manuscript, the better chance you have. We strongly recommend you have your manuscript edited and proofread before submission.
