How will I know if my submission has been received?
Though we deeply respect every author's work, due to the volume of submitted queries we can only respond to projects we are interested in publishing. The evaluation process for unsolicited proposals typically takes two to three month.
If you are a literary agent or a Sounds True author, someone from our acquisitions department will respond in a timely manner.
Will anybody actually review my submission?
We really do review your material, and we genuinely appreciate the time and effort you put into your work. It seems there are more people moved to share their spiritual insights with others than at any time in history. We are honored and humbled to take part in this dissemination of wisdom.
Have you ever published an unsolicited submission?
Although the majority of our publications come to us from current authors, agents, and our editorial department's efforts, we have successfully published a number of titles that were unsolicited.
What did you do with my submission materials after you rejected me?
We file incoming submissions for our records and do not share or distribute them.
Please do not send us originals of your work; we only accept submissions via email and we are not able to return content mailed to us.
I'm looking for a distributor—can you help?
No, we are unable to distribute products that aren’t published by Sounds True.
