UPDATED INFORMATION EFFECTIVE JUNE 1, 2017: Due to the overwhelming number of submissions we have received, and to ensure a fair review of submissions we have already received, we will not be reviewing any more submissions until October 15, 2017. Although the information below is current and the submission form remains active, any submissions received between now and October 15 will not be reviewed nor responded to.

If you have a book that meets our publishing criteria, then Dove Christian Publishers welcomes the opportunity to review your book for potential publication. In order to consider your book for publication, we will need you to provide  information via our online submission form (link below):

NOTE: Please do not send us any correspondence describing your book apart from our online submission form. You should have already started to write the book and have at least four chapters completed before you approach us with a submission.

Upon revewing your submission, if we are interested, we will request the full manuscript. Please do not send complete manuscripts unless we request them. Please do not send artwork (if your book has illustrations or photos, we will revew them later). Simultaneous submissions are okay.

We accept proposals in electronic format via our online form only. No CD submissions. No postal mail submissions. No direct e-mail submissions.

If you follow the directions above, your submission will be given a fair and thorough review to determine if your book is well written, well presented, professionallty edited, and will garner attention in the Christian marketplace.

Please allow 4-6 weeks for a response on submissions. If you have not received a response from us within 6 weeks, then we are not interested in your submission. Due to the volume of submissions, we are not able to comment individually on each submission. However,if you would like a general idea as to why your submission was not accepted, view our frequently asked questions page.

If the submission meets the criteria and we are able to publish the book, you will be asked to sign a contract detailing the terms of the publishing arrangement, such as royalties paid, delivery of the finish product, marketing, etc. Once the contract is signed, Dove Publishers will await the delivery of the full book manuscript under the terms specified in the contract. Once the full  manuscript has been received, it will be reviewed to determine if it meets the requirements set forth in the contract. At that stage, we will work with you to make changes to the publication that are necessary so that it is ready for publishing. If the book is in order, it will go to the editing stage, the final process before the book is published. Dove Christian Publishers will determine an official publication date that the book will be made available to book distributors, online vendors and through Dove Christian Publishers' web site for sale to the general public. You will be paid a royalty for each sale in accordance with the contract.
