Submit your manuscript to be considered for publication

Vertu Publishing is currently accepting unsolicited manuscripts from authors in any genre! We will consider works in the young reader space, inspirational fiction, Christian literature, thriller, mystery and suspense, nonfiction, and even reference materials and devotionals.

** Please note, Vertu Publishing reserves the right to reject publication for any reason. We take a number of factors into consideration when considering a manuscript’s viability for publication. These include, but are not limited to, marketability, genre, content, technical correctness, query quality, guideline adherence, and personal character/attitude.  The Vertu standard of excellence is second to none, and we are very particular about the works that represent our firm, therefore we take the publication process very seriously. Works deemed “unready” for release and/or works that are not in keeping with the laudable Vertu standard will not be considered. If your manuscript is rejected by our review team, you will receive a letter of explanation after the review period has ended.

Before you submit, we encourage you to review our additional resources. The guidelines and the form for submission are below.

*Utilization of our developmental services is not required for submission and will in no way guarantee your manuscript will be accepted for publication by VP or any other publisher.

Submission Guidelines

Cover Letter

Your letter should include:

  • Your full name (and pseudonym if applicable)
  • Your address, telephone number, and email address
  • Any details of past writing experience
  • Links to any previously published works
  • Links for your social media presence
  • Your website address
  • An estimated word count for your complete manuscript


A synopsis is a brief overview of your manuscript. Your synopsis should not exceed 500 words and should provide us with a “reason” we should choose your work for publication.

Include a copy of your full and complete manuscript in a simple format.

Our managing editor’s team will begin the vetting process by reviewing your cover letter and query. If you’ve piqued our interest, we will do some marketing homework and conduct a quick review of your work.

If your work is selected for a more in-depth review, we will issue an interest letter and begin the process of a thorough read.

If, after this process, your work is selected for publication, you will be notified in writing via email, and we will get the ball rolling toward all that fun legal stuff.

If your book is not selected, you will be notified in writing via email.
