Gate Way Publishers is not interested in publishing works or material that encourages hatred or discrimination based on race, religion, sex, or sexual-orientation or contains incest, bestiality, fetish sex, underage sex, and/or gratuitous violence. Please do not submit manuscripts to GWP that have already been offered for free or for sale, in electronic formats, over the internet.
There are no monetary advances available. Your income from e-books is based upon sales of the product.
The recommended length for both fiction and nonfiction ebooks manuscripts is 40,000 to 250,000 words. Short fiction and nonfiction articles should be between 5,000 and 35,000 words. We do not accept material on speculation. Potential authors must have a completed manuscript ready to go before sending us a query letter.
Submission queries may be sent by filling out our Book Info Form. Please be sure to let us know whether the title you are submitting for our consideration is a simultaneous submission. We do accept such submissions, however we will need to know to which other publishers the work has been (or will be) submitted.
We may require that a two-to five-page synopsis describing your story or nonfiction book be sent as an email attachment (in MS Word DOC or plain TXT format.) Please notify us if you are not familiar with sending email attachments, so we may provide assistance. Your fiction synopsis should include the conflict and resolution of the story, a description of the main characters, and a summary showing the beginning, middle and end of your story. For nonfiction works, we will require a chapter-by-chapter outline instead of a synopsis, as well as the first chapter of the manuscript. We may also request a brief paragraph detailing your qualifications/experience for writing on your chosen subject.
We will notify you by email if we are interested in reading the complete manuscript. We prefer to receive manuscripts electronically via email, but will accept submissions through snail mail. Please let us know in advance if you need to make such arrangements. We will not be responsible for lost, defective or damaged submission, so writers are strongly encouraged to keep back-up copies.
