How to Format Your Manuscript:
To ensure a smooth review process, please follow these formatting guidelines when preparing your manuscript:
- Save your document as a Microsoft Word document with the file extensions .doc, .docx, .txt, or .pdf.
- Double-space your document and indent paragraphs (do not use tabs).
- Use Times Roman or a similar serif font at 12-point size throughout the entire document.
- Include a title page with your suggested title, word count, and a watermark stating “draft version.”
- Number the pages, preferably at the bottom-right.
- Set margins to 1″ on the top, bottom, and both sides.
- Do not include headers or footers in your document.
- Run a spell check and grammar check before submitting your manuscript.

What to Include in Your Submission Forms: We gather important information in our submission forms to assess compatibility with you and your work. Please be thorough when completing the forms, as both your creation and your identity as a writer are equally important to us. If you need to make updates or edits to your submission after sending it, you can return to the forms and make the changes.
Our Review Process:
Our team is skilled at identifying quality work in the submissions we receive.
Capture our attention with a compelling hook and synopsis to make us eager to read your manuscript. If we determine that your book is not a fit for us, we will inform you in writing.
Each manuscript is reviewed professionally with the utmost care and respect for your efforts. However, please note that due to the high volume of submissions, the review process may take several weeks. If you haven’t heard from us within 10 days after receiving our confirmation email, there’s no need to worry. We will provide a response regarding the status of your submission. If your manuscript is approved, our team will contact you to initiate discussions about acquiring it for publication.
Simultaneous Submissions: We understand that it’s common to submit work to multiple publishers. If you are seeking submissions from other publishers, please mention this in the “Why I Am a Good Fit” question during the submission process. Additionally, if your work is contracted elsewhere, please inform us immediately so that we can remove your manuscript from consideration. We do accept multiple submissions from a single author, but we request that titles be sent as a single submission, not grouped with other manuscripts.
Additional Submission Information: All work must be original and should not have been published elsewhere unless all rights have reverted back to the author. Established authors with print works and no digital contracts are welcome to submit. Please provide your publishing history in the appropriate fields in the submission forms. We expect our authors to actively market their books, not only upon publication but also in the months and years following and preceding publication. To support this, we work closely with our authors to provide guidance on book marketing do’s and don’ts.
We strive to keep the submission process simple. Please send your manuscript along with full contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once again, we appreciate your submission to Clear Impact Publishing, and we hope your work finds its way to our list of published books.
