Complete Submission Guidelines
We’re looking for high quality books by leading fiction and nonfiction self publishing unagented authors in the fields of ufology, paranormal phenomena, energy healing, cryptids, spirituality and mild faith, wholesome or “sweet” romance novels, holiday related, personal growth, and related topics. These novels need to be around 75,000 – 90,000 words in length. We also love romances and mysteries that celebrate friendship, family, and/or community ties. We aren’t looking for stories with strong religious themes, but faith may be depicted as a part of characters’ lives. No explicit nudity, sex, profanity, or graphic depictions of sexuality or violence will be accepted. Physical interaction must be limited. In murder mysteries, the murder must happen “off the page,” and we tend to avoid other heavy or overly disturbing content too.
We do not consider publications needing a lot of editing, spellchecking, nonfiction fact checking, etc. The author has the sole responsibility of providing an accurate final draft with the way their writing is intended to be published.
As your publisher, we will not proofread your book for spelling or grammatical errors. If your writing skills are not what you'd like them to be or you'd like a professional editing team to look at your work, our services and rates are as follows:
Basic copyediting: $15 to $20 per hour Pace: 5 to 10 pages an hour
Heavy copyediting: $35 to $40 per hour Pace: 2 to 5 pages an hour
Developmental editing: $75 to $80 per hour Pace: 2 to 5 pages per hour
Basic copyediting: only correcting spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
Heavy copyediting: basic copyediting as well as the overall content, flow of story, entire development, organization, and arrangement of text.
Developmental editing: the above services plus fact checking, character development, and rewriting much of the book for flow purposes (think "ghostwriter" here).
Please don’t mail physical copies of manuscripts. We accept electronic submissions only.
If you are accepted as a BMK Author, an outline of our wholesale agreement will be sent. BMK Publishing thanks you so much for your interest!
We look forward to your submissions! Please send to:
