Submitting Your Work to Steward House

Steward House Publishers only accepts manuscripts that have been edited to a sufficiently professional level at the time of submission. Authors have the responsibility to ensure that their submission is free from careless errors.

All submissions must contain either a full manuscript (preferred) or a partial manuscript that includes at least three sample chapters, a cover letter, and a synopsis of the whole manuscript. The author's name (and pen name, if applicable), the anticipated title and genre of the work, and the word count should appear in the cover letter, as well as standard contact information. The submission should be sent as attachments in an email to (Note: If the total size of the attachments will exceed 2 MB in size, please contact us at for instructions.)

Typical Submissions

Steward House generally publishes works between 80,000 and 150,000 words in length, and is open to a variety of genres, both fiction and non-fiction, if the writing shows skill and care with words. At this time we are not accepting book proposals: only finished manuscripts will be considered for publication. We are not interested in and will reject outright any submissions of an autobiographical or poetic nature.

Due to the volume of submissions received, response time to submissions varies, but an author can expect that a response will likely be received in 4 to 6 weeks.

Any submissions received that do not conform to the above guidelines will be rejected.

A Pilot's Guide to Washington

This book is a guidebook for private aviators in Washington State, or folks visiting the State. Washington State is among the most beautiful and diverse states in the Union. There are flat and dry desserts, stunning basalt formations, towering mountains, rolling grass hills, thick rain forests, island archipelagos, and lakes and rivers and straits and sounds. Well, one sound. And we have roughly a billion airports to visit. (I'm exaggerating slightly.) It would be shame to be a pilot living in or visiting Washington State and not deeply partake of the richness of this opportunity.
