This means you have one week to submit. Please note: This does not apply to solicited manuscripts (if we requested material through a pitch event/conference)or if you’re an […]

A (Small) Update to Submissions

A (Small) Update to Submissions

Hello REUTS friends and family! We wanted to make sure everyone was aware of a new, but subtle, change to our submissions page. Unfortunately, we receive so many submissions each day, coupled with the fact that the REUTS team reads and evaluates these differently, it tends to take us a little longer than other publishing houses to […]

  As August comes to an end and September looms, transitions are on the forefront of everyone’s minds. Kids go back to school, leaves start to fall, the scorching heat of summer gives way to pleasantly cool breezes and stormy nights, and another batch of post-its shifts into the overdue pile on my Infamous Wall […]

Adventures in the Slush Pile: 8/17/15 Edition

Posted by on Aug 17, 2015 in Submissions | No Comments

Queries. Pitches. Synopses. Three words that strike fear into every author’s heart. And rightfully so — selling your book to an agent or editor depends on your ability to encapsulate your story’s heart into a few simple sentences. For most people, that’s a nearly impossible challenge. But perhaps if we look at why this practice is necessary, it will […]

Welcome to the newest addition to the REUTS blog!

Excuse Our Dust; We’re Evolving

Posted by on Jun 24, 2015 in Submissions | No Comments

  As some of you may or may not know, the REUTS blog is tended by many of our staff, which is why we usually stick to the royal “we,” writing on topics from the stance of a company rather than an individual. Today, I’m breaking that mold. Hi! **waves** I’m Kisa Whipkey. Most of you […]

What Not to do When Querying

#PressReleaseThursday: Enter into the NA dystopian ARK OF DREAMS by Jessa Russo

  And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. {Genesis 6:19} Another week!

The Multiple Facets of Rejection

The Multiple Facets of Rejection

With every rejection we send, we like to leave the relationship open ended, allowing authors to reach out and ask the all-important question: why was my submission not accepted? Every author runs into this question, likely multiple times throughout the course of their publishing career. Of course we can’t divulge all the specifics, but we can give a […]
