L.A.S Books is a growing publishing company based in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia (about an hour northwest of Washington, D.C.). Among our services, we provide coaching for writers, editorial assistance, and publication of print books and ebooks between 25,000 and 120,000 words.
In addition to bringing in new clients for our coaching and editorial assistance services, we are currently seeking new authors for publication. Any genre of fiction and non-fiction will be considered except erotica, violent fiction, and works with intense themes. We do not publish poetry or screenplays. Our review process is straightforward: submissions are primarily evaluated on the quality of the work, the author’s professionalism, how well we think the book would sell, and whether we enjoyed reading the work ourselves.
We are open to considering a variety of works, yet we are highly selective about the quality of the work and the potential of our authors, publishing perhaps only four new books each year at this time. Only the cream of the crop manuscripts pass through to our readership. This principle is how we build our customers’ trust and create a win-win-win for our loyal readers, our first-rate authors, and our company.
To submit your work, paste the full (complete, polished) manuscript into the body of an email along with the author’s legal name and contact information. Send the email to LASBooksWVSubmissions at gmail dot com.
You will receive a response if we accept your work or if we see potential in you and your work with a few minor revisions/edits. We do not send rejections: 1) they waste time and 2) they’re not pleasant to give or receive. If you have not heard from us within four weeks, move on to your next publisher.
