Once you have submitted your manuscript to us, we ask that you allow us at least four weeks for a response.
If your submission includes material that is copyrighted by someone else, it is your responsibility to clear the use of all text, including lengthy prose quotations and all lyrics and poems.
Be cautious about using excerpts of works (including song lyrics) by established writers/artists. These can be very difficult to obtain permission to use and usually cost a lot of money.
If you are telling a nonfiction story, please secure permission from your sources, even if their names have been changed. (If a person can identify themselves in a story you have written, you probably need their permission.)
Rest assured that we will not steal your idea or any part of your manuscript. Under current U.S. copyright law, your work is already protected the minute you write it down on paper. It is not necessary for you to register your manuscript for copyright with the U.S. Copyright Office before submitting it.
If your book is chosen for publication, we will submit the necessary forms to register the copyright in your name.
For further information and specific copyright questions, please review the Library of Congress Copyright Office's FAQ.
