Excited about the possibility of getting published but not sure where to start? We hope you’ve already looked at the rest of this website and that has helped you decide whether your story is the type of thing we publish. Having ticked that box, you’ve moved onto our submissions area. The submissions procedure can seem long, complicated and even arbitrary without some background information to hand, so we’ve broken the submissions process down into these simple steps:
Read the Submission Guidelines, followed by our ‘Why Do We Ask So Many Questions?' page. Finally, complete the Submissions Form.
Along the way, we also recommend that you take a look at our Publishing Process page. This expands on what you’ve read in ‘Why Do We Ask So Many Questions?'.
It may seem odd to be suggesting to potential writers that they read about the publishing process before they even submit a manuscript, but understanding how Eye Books/ Lightning Books works will, we hope, make the ‘randomness’ of the questions and the requests we make on the Submissions Form easier to understand, and therefore worthwhile to follow.
