Thank you for your interest in Fish Out of Water Books.

Please Note: we are unable to accept unsolicited manuscripts.

If you are interested in publishing with us, please first take a look at our Book Submissions and Why Work With Us pages.

If you feel that we would be a good fit, please e-mail us at (i) a synopsis of your book; (ii) a sample chapter; (iii) a brief bio; (iv) a description of the target audience; and (v) the approximate word count for your full manuscript (our target word count is between 60,000 and 100,000 words).

  • If we like your synopsis and sample chapter, we will request a copy of your full manuscript. Please ensure that your manuscript is complete or close to completion before sending your synopsis and sample chapter. Your manuscript should be sent as a Word attachment along with a completed author questionnaire.
  • Include a written statement to say that your work is not plagiarized from any other source, does not libel or slander any other party, has not been previously published, and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
  • Format: one inch margins; double spaced text; single, 12-point typeface; please include page numbers.

Drop us a line at any time if you have any questions.

Jon and Laurie Wilson, Ann Arbor, MI
