Book / Manuscript Submissions

We are now accepting manuscript submissions! Please take note of our submission guidelines as follows:

 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

We are looking for manuscripts typically from Orthodox Christians about Orthodox Christianity or that otherwise help us on our mission to seek out God’s will: “For this is good and acceptable int he sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:3–4)

 

WHAT STEPS TO TAKE FOR CONSIDERATION OF YOUR MANUSCRIPT

Step 1. Please email a brief query letter by email to admin@stmabbeypress.com and include the following:

  • Summary of your book
  • Explanation of how it fits what we are looking for
  • Your qualifications
  • Projected word count
  • When you expect to be finished with your manuscript

Our acquisitions editor will send you a response indicating whether we are interested in continuing to pursue more information from you or instead decline to proceed further in the process.

Step 2. If we are interested in seeing more, we will seek that you provide us a professionally prepared book proposal. Note: we will not be seeking to receive your completed manuscript. The purpose of a book proposal is to provide sufficient detail to our editorial committee so that they may be able to make a decision on what to pursue. If we seek a book proposal from you, we will provide you instructions on what content we are seeking.

Step 3. If the editorial committee accepts your book proposal, you will then be asked to begin with a formal understanding of the relationship in the form of a contract which we will both sign. And then we will work diligently to publish your work, for God’s glory.
