Submission Guidelines

If you are interested in submitting a book query, proposal, or manuscript to Roost Books for consideration, please read the following guidelines:

To send a book proposal, include a synopsis of the book, a table of contents or outline, a copy of the author’s résumé or some other brief biographical statement, along with two or three sample chapters (they do not need to be in consecutive order). The chapters should be double-spaced.

If you want any of your materials returned, include a self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage for us to return them to you. We cannot be held responsible for lost or discarded materials if you do not include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

Please be advised that we publish very few works of poetry or fiction.

Due to the volume of submissions we receive, the review process of a manuscript typically occurs over the course of about four to six months.

Please address any materials to:

Editorial Assistant
Roost Books
300 Massachusetts Avenue
Boston, MA 02115

We do not review materials submitted via e-mail.
