WHAT WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT
- Non-fiction – This typically sells better than fiction, provided the author is a savvy marketer.
- Prepper topics (these are selling very well right now)
- Adult coloring books
- How-to books
- Fiction that is exceptional
WHAT WE WILL REJECT
- Poetry books – A few poems are fine but an entire book of poetry will be rejected. Poetry rarely sells.
- Collections of short stories.
- Children’s books (young adult novels will be considered, however).
- Color-interior books (refer to our BookLocker.com division for color-interior publishing).
- Illegal material – We won’t accept manuscripts that teach people how to perform illegal acts. (i.e. how to steal credit card numbers, teach a dog to fight, etc.)
- Portraying child abuse, or minors in sexual situations – Any manuscript that describes a child being abused will be rejected. If your character is in a sexual situation, they need to be 18 or older.
- Manuscripts that may lead to lawsuits against the author – Memoirs that describe child abuse attract lawsuits. While we know writing these are therapeutic, they carry a heavy legal liability. We will reject any manuscript that we feel may lead to lawsuits against the author. Examples: My Ex is a Jerk, My Uncle Sexually Abused Me, My Boss Discriminated Against Me, John Doe at the CIA Railroaded Me and Now I’m in Prison, etc.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Contrary to what is currently published about Abuzz Press on some websites, we do NOT purchase manuscripts outright.
