What Happens Next?

From this date forward, after your submission (e.g., novel, picture book) has been received via email, MB Publishing will respond within three days via email with a brief thank-you note and an acknowledgement that your submission has been received. It will read as follows: 


Thank you very much for your interest in MB Publishing. Your submission has been received.


Within two weeks of our receiving your initial submission of three chapters (of your novel), if we are interested in reading more, we will send you an email with that specific request. When that additional material is received by us, within three days, we will send you another email to let you know that we have received it. That email will read as follows: 


Thank you for sending us the additional material. 


Within two weeks of receiving that additional material, if we are interested in discussing publication, we will be in touch with you. If, however, after two weeks, you hear nothing more from us, then we are, unfortunately, not going to be making an offer to publish. Please know, though, that you will not receive a rejection email or any further emails from us regarding your submission.


For picture book writers, within two weeks of our receiving your full manuscript, if we are interested in discussing publication, we will be in touch with you. If, however, after two weeks, you hear nothing more from us, then we are, unfortunately, not going to be making an offer to publish. Please know, though, that you will not receive a rejection email or any further emails from us regarding your submission.


Special Note 1: If you submitted your manuscript via snail mail by mistake,  then please feel free to resubmit to us via email.


Special Note 2: MB Publishing is a traditional publishing house: we do not charge our authors to publish their books.


Thank you for reading our guidelines—and for submitting your work!
