MPP Inc. is currently accepting proposals in the following genres: biography, art, history, science and nature, political and social issues, folklore, children's fiction and non-fiction, sports, guidebooks, cookbooks, and photographic books.
Writers wishing to send a proposal to MPP should send a cover letter with a current mailing address, phone number, and email address. Include some information about yourself (and your co-authors, if applicable). We also require you to submit a current resume that includes a listing of what you have published and any other experience that qualifies you to write this book.
Completed Manuscripts: We do sometimes accept completed manuscripts for consideration, but only if you have made prior arrangements with us. Unsolicited manuscripts will not be accepted. If you have a completed manuscript, you must first contact us by mail, phone, or email before sending it to us.
Book Proposals: A book proposal need not be more than four to five pages in length. It must, however, contain a tentative table of contents and enough information for us to assess its content and its potential audience. To do that, we ask that you follow these guidelines:
Outline: The outline must include a provisional title for the book, a tentative table of contents (if applicable), and a brief description of each chapter (if applicable). If you plan to include tables, charts, figures, or photos, please indicate their content and how many you plan to include.
Audience & Use: The proposal must include an indication of the audience you intend to reach with your book. An evaluation of how your proposed work compares with existing published material. Potential marketing plans or suggestions would be very helpful.
Completion Date: Indicate the expected length of your book (estimate this in both the number of 8 1/2 x 11, double-spaced, 12-point font pages, and the number of words), as well as a realistic schedule and completion date.
What To Submit : All proposals must be typed and double-spaced with a 1-inch left and a 1 1/4-inch right hand margin. We will accept a hardcopy or an electronic submission of your proposal. Please note that we cannot return any submitted materials.
