#MSWLMonday March

Welcome back for another installment of #MSWLMonday! We’ve got something a little different for you today, though. Instead of sharing what are on our editors’ wish lists, we’re going to give YOU something that every author can use: Feedback!

That’s right—for the entire month of March, our editors will be providing personalized feedback for every qualified submission we receive. What’s a qualified submission, you ask?

A query that

  • Is dated and received between March 1, 2021 and March 31, 2021
  • Is for a manuscript that is completed and polished
  • Follows our submission guidelines, which can be found here: https://anaiahpress.wordpress.com/submissions/
  • Adheres to our content guidelines, meaning it’s Christian fiction 

Please note that only submissions meeting the above guidelines will receive feedback. Do not send a query for a book that doesn’t fit with what we publish for the sole purpose of securing feedback, including but not limited to: secular books or books without positive Christan themes, non-fiction, self-help, memoirs, picture books, early readers, and/or adult books that are outside the romance genre. 

How to submit for feedback:

  1. Send a query letter with the first 10 pages of the manuscript PASTED into the body of an email
  2. Address your query to the editor you feel will be the best fit. (Do not send to more than one editor as we do share submissions.)
  3. In the subject line, include: Feedback Query__{Book Title}

All feedback will be provided within our standard 8–12 week response time. 

And now, a quick reminder of what our editors are seeking: 

Kara Leigh Miller—Fun, adventurous middle grade, contemporary young adult romance, young adult thrillers, all subgenres of adult romance and romantic suspense (please no historical romance!)

Candee Fick—Adult contemporary and historical romance.

Laura Maisano—Young adult contemporary sibling stories, fantasy, and out-of-the-box sci-fi.

Lisa Dunn—Young adult contemporary, humor, and fantasy.

Got questions or need clarification? Leave a comment and one of our editors will answer! We can’t wait to read your story.

  1. This sounds excellent and I will be submitting my manuscript sample later today. I have a question – since this will be in the form of a query, will the manuscript also be considered for acceptance for publication?

    Thank you,

    1. Hi, Kris!

      When you send your query, we ask for the first 10 pages of the manuscript to be pasted into the email, so if we like what we see, you could very well end up with a full request and an offer for publication 🙂 Feedback offered will encompass what we see in those sample pages.

      We look forward to seeing your submission.
