We will respond within 3 weeks of your submission. If we like what we read and see potential in your story, you’ll receive an email asking for your complete manuscript. The manuscript should be formatted according to the standard format (mentioned below.)

Once we receive your completed manuscript, we’ll take at least two months to respond.

You are free to submit your proposal simultaneously to us and to others. However, we would request you to inform us of the same. We would also request you to inform us as soon as your manuscript has been accepted for publication by someone else so that we may stop evaluation of your proposal.

Should we ask for your manuscript, please do not submit it to us if you have already submitted it to another publishing house until you have heard from them. Similarly, we would request you not to submit your manuscript elsewhere when it is with us. You are free to ask us to stop evaluation of your manuscript at any stage before we have communicated our decision.

Please do not re-send a manuscript for our consideration that has been rejected once.


Disclaimer: Please keep a copy of any query/proposal that you send us. 
Also, the same applies to manuscript if you're asked to send one.
We do not take any responsibility to return any material(s) sent by you.
