      We much regret that we cannot consider unsolicited manuscripts from the general public. Our recommendation is to find a literary agent who will advise on the content, layout and style of a book before submitting it to suitable publishers. Agents can be found by searching on the web or by choosing from those listed in The Writers' & Artists' Yearbook.
