Cozy Reads Publishing Submissions

If you have an Original Fictional Story –
We Want it!

Though an agent is not required to submit your manuscript to Cozy Reads Publishing, we do have a couple of requirements. 
We are looking for fictional submissions that are at least 40,000 words or greater. 

Some authors submit their scripts to several publishers at once. We understand that. However, in order to move forward with any formal offer, we would require a brief period of exclusivity. Therefore, if you have submitted your manuscript to multiple publishers we do require that be stated at the time of submission.

*Please note – If your book has been previously published it will need to be unpublished for a minimum of 6 months before consideration.
