View Full Version : Maps with manuscript

Hi everyone,

I was wandering if my fantasy story has a map which I have hand drawn do I send the map in when I send in my queries?

Nope! Maps for fantasy books don't come into play until much later in the process. Make sure your book is clear and comprehensible without it.

Good luck!

What Corinne said. There's nothing worse than finding out someone has sent a huge file of art with a submission, cause you usually end up finding out when you are in a hurry to close your computer and go someplace. Photos are the worst on this. Never send photos with a ms unless you've asked first.

When I received one full request, I sent small diagrams that went with each part of the novel ... the book was about spy-hunting using math. Should I perhaps not have done this? I didn't send them with the partials or any queries. And of course, I would expect them to be redone if I ever actually got published ...
