Call for Manuscripts: SBNR & Thai Language
LivingHour.org is currently issuing a call for manuscripts. We will consider SBNR (Spiritual But Not Religious) books that involve , Buddhism, Taoism, or Islam. For a manuscript to be seriously considered it must be in keeping with the perspective of the material that you see posted on LivingHour.org—so do spend some time reading the website to make sure your submission is appropriate. We appreciate works that are both literary and accessible, books where the author exhibits a sense of humor about themselves and the world around them.
We are also accepting submissions of learn Thai language books that are original and can offer students of the Thai language something which they cannot get from other books.
Do to the amount of submissions we expect to receive, please do not expect a detailed critique of your manuscript. But we will let you know our decision usually within 2-3 weeks after receiving your submission.
Please note that our publishing program for authors is for e-books and POD books. Accepting publication with LivingHour.org means that we will edit your manuscript, prepare it for e-book and print publication, and distribute it online via Smashwords, CreateSpace, Amazon.com, and Barnes & Noble. We also will promote the book via our website, which receives thousands of visitors every month, and other online venues. In return, we keep 40% of the revenue that we receive from our distributors. The author receives 60% of this revenue as their royalty payment. There are no upfront costs for the author required.
For Thai language books wished to be purchased by expats in Thailand, we will print these locally and ship them from our Isaan office.
Please send us a sample chapter, along with a well written cover letter that details who you are, who you see as the audience of your book, what aspects of your book make it original and compelling, and what you will do personally to help promote the book. Submissions should be made to: living [at] livinghour (dot) org.
Lastly, please do not get discouraged if we reject your manuscript. We are a small publisher and can only accept a few manuscripts each year that most closely match the mission of LivingHour.org.
