Priority Submission or Regular Submission?

A Priority Submission aims to get your work onto the show in a matter of weeks, not months. It costs only $29.95 to make a Priority Submission: the best way to get timely feedback on your work with minimum delay.

Success in the publishing industry is often about strategic timing. With a Priority Submission, you can strike while the iron’s hot: test a new book concept without spending months writing the entire manuscript!

Priority submissions are not identified as such on the show. They are treated identically to non-priority submissions.

Check the box on the submission form below to make a Priority Submission.
