imagine this...

Each story published under this brand is a figurative campfire huddle with others, visiting late into the night, sharing lives and stories with one another.

How amazing would it feel to know your story is impacting the lives of others?

what to consider before you submit your book proposal...

To submit your book proposal please consider the following:

So that you have the very best chance of having your manuscript chosen to be a Starfish Story!

A typical format for a book proposal includes a brief synopsis, sample chapter, book details, character profiles, author biography, and a detailed breakdown of the chapters.

The average book proposal is 15 – 30 pages long. The proposal length depends on the sample chapters and overview of the book.

An outline, author bio, audience analysis, comparative and competitor titles, one to three sample chapters, marketing plans, and promotion are all included in a book proposal.

This will vary depending on how many book proposals we have at any given time. The current wait period is between 2-4 weeks.
