Submissions

TouchPoint publishes titles across multiple genres and subgenres. Our focus is not so much on a specific genre or subgenre, but on acquiring manuscripts that are exceptionally well-written, fast-paced, and engaging.

Submissions Guidelines

  • Do not send full manuscripts unless requested.
  • Do not send unsolicited attachments as they will not be opened or acknowledged.
  • While we would love to reply to all submissions, we generally reply when intererested. Most likely, if you have not heard from us within 6 weeks, we have decided to pass. You are welcome to follow up after 6 weeks and can safely assume we’ve passed after 2 months.

Fiction submissions:

  • For stand-alone projects (any genre), submit a brief query and one-page synopsis (synopsis must tell the ending) in the body of an email to touchpointpresssubmissions@gmail.com. Put “Query: Your Book Title” in the subject line.
  • For series, submit a fiction proposal including a chapter outline, synopsis (synopsis must include the ending), and the first three consecutive chapters of Book 1 and a strong synopsis of the Book 2 with summaries of subsequent titles, if applicable, to touchpointpresssubmissions@gmail.com. Send your fiction proposal in the form of a Word document. Put “Fiction Proposal: Your Book/Series Title” in the subject line.

Nonfiction submissions:

  • Submit a proposal with CV, chapter outline, and first three consecutive chapters. If your manuscript is not complete, include estimated completion date and length. Submit your proposal as a Word document to touchpointpresssubmissions@gmail.com. Make sure you put “Nonfiction Proposal: Your Book Title” in the subject line.
