A free monthly e-letter with exclusive news, interviews, and excerpts.
Thank you for your interest.
Savas Beatie welcomes book-length non-fiction military and general history manuscripts (all topics, eras). Your manuscript must be based upon extensive original research on a topic that is original or presented in a unique manner.
Please do not send your manuscript without first inquiring whether we are interested in viewing it. Instead, send us a brief query letter via e-mail. This letter must include the following information:
Working title and topic area (Civil War, WWII, etc.);
Thesis paragraph (what your work is about, and how it differs from other published works on the subject);
Projected length (typed pages / words);
Estimated date of completion;
A discussion of the sources you are using to produce your manuscript;
A brief bio about you (education, background, and why you are qualified to write this book);
Any other pertinent details that may help us.
Please keep this e-mail query letter as brief as possible.
We ask that you DO NOT include any attachments with this first e-mail. We do not need to see any of your work at this point.
We strongly prefer e-mail query letters. Use this form to submit an email:
Submission e-mail address:
If for some reason you are unable to comply and instead need to send us a letter, and you require a reply in writing (as opposed to a reply via e-mail), include a SASE. This makes it much easier and faster for us to answer your inquiry in a timely manner.
