As a writer interested in seeing your book “in print,” you are knocking on the door of one of the most glamorous yet mysterious institutions in this country: the Publishing Industry. We know (all too well, unfortunately) that most publishers ignore potential authors, but we are different. We will tell you the truth, even if it hurts, and you will get to talk to a real person. (Imagine that!)
We embrace you. Rest assured there will be no mystery about whether or not we received your proposal. We will call, email, Tweet, Facebook or throw rocks at your bedroom window!
Our commitment to you is to actually review your information and consider it for publication with StoneHouse Ink. If we love it you might get a super cool call back. If we loathe it, we may burn your MS and hire some kid to bring you a rejection letter–but we really hate to do that to a poor kid… so who knows.
The venture of publishing is not without risk… but the rewards can be substantial.
Your manuscript has an excellent chance of success in one of our publishing channels if we accept it (big IF, people … we have limited capacity and simply can’t take on every great project that comes our way), but we do need to face facts. Both you and we will have to contribute an enormous amount of time, work, attention, and blood to secure that success … did we mention blood?
We are excited to hear about your book and are honored that you would like us to consider publishing it.
