what we’re looking for

sobookBooks with heart. At Blaze, we’re not looking for any particular genre. We’re looking for a message woven into the words of a well-written, young adult or middle grade novel. Your message can be inspiring, moving, sad, or make people change the way they view others around them. If you choose to package that up in a fantasy, horror, or sci-fi, so be it! We’d love to take a look at your work, as long as it’s complete and between 55,000 and 120,000 (at least 35,000 for Middle Grade) words and has been thoroughly edited and polished. While Blaze will consider self-published works, we prefer submissions with fresh content.

how to submit

Send the following to queries@blazepub.com:

  • Query letter
  • First three chapters of manuscript (pasted in body of email)
  • A couple sentences about the message your book contains
  • Short Author Bio or Experience
  • Contact Information

**We do not open attachments. All information must be pasted in the body of your email.**

Please allow us eight to twelve weeks to review your query and get back with you. We will respond to all submissions.
