The following are the most asked questions about the Hay House submission process, along with our answers. We hope this information is most helpful to you.
Are you currently accepting unsolicited manuscripts?
We accept submissions only through an agent or if you have taken or attended one of our Writer’s courses or workshops. There are no exceptions to this policy. If you send in an unsolicited manuscript, it will not be reviewed and will be immediately discarded.
I attended a live Writer’s Workshop Event or took the Online Writer’s course; how do I submit my proposal or manuscript?
You will receive information at the event, or during the course. You can also contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Your eligibility will be verified before your manuscript is considered.
How can I find an agent?
The best thing to do is consult a book such as Guide to Literary Agents or a website such as www.agentquery.com. We do not provide lists of names or specific agent recommendations.
What other options are there?
There are many self-publishing options available. Hay House has a dedicated division called Balboa Press that helps authors self-publish their books. Partnering with Author Solutions, a leader in this field, we offer a full-service publishing company in Balboa, with various packages and price points available. Some packages even include support to help achieve marketplace success.
Books published by Balboa Press are kept separate from those sold by Hay House. However, we continually review book sales and successful titles will be picked up and republished by Hay House. For more information on Balboa Press, please visit www.BalboaPress.com.
