In order to submit your work, you will need the following:

Please submit the full manuscript with a synopsis or a detailed plot of your story.  
*
Always write your books with a series in mind.  
*
The central character must be deeply woven into Western lore. Readers flock to characters who are gunslingers, sheriffs, mountain men, frontiersmen, etc.  
*
The ending of each book needs to have a satisfactory ending with the character’s story being able to carry on to the next book – or seeds of the next book interwoven into the last couple of chapters.  
*
We look for one new novel around every 40 days. Six books equals a season.

*
All covers must fit the formula. The character’s name must feature on the cover at the top followed by the character’s occupation, eg. U.S. Marshal Robert Jones.  

Replies can take a little while so please be patient. If you haven’t heard back from us within eight weeks, then please take it your submission has been unsuccessful.
