Your literary journey begins when you submit your manuscript for review. Inkwater Press considers each manuscript on a case-by-case basis because no two books or authors are the same. We accept manuscripts in all genres and have published fiction, nonfiction, children’s books, and poetry.
We review each manuscript submitted to us for publication, taking into consideration the readiness of the work, specific editing and design needs, marketability and the author’s expectations. We are an author-subsidy publisher offering personalized service and professional quality to each one of our authors.
If we accept your work for publication, we strongly recommend it be professionally edited, and we work with you to create a comprehensive, tailor-made marketing plan for your book. Typically, the publishing process takes approximately four months from the time we accept your manuscript to publication; however, this timeline may fluctuate depending on each book’s custom plan.
You are welcome to call to discuss your manuscript or any other questions you may have Monday through Friday, from 8 AM to 5 PM Pacific Time, at 503.968.6777. We look forward to hearing from you and discussing how we can best partner with you to publish your book.
