Blooming Tree Press (Adult, Young Adult and Children’s Divisions), CBAY Books and Ready Blade Graphic Novels is NOT accepting any unsolicited manuscripts or illustrations at this time. (All works submitted will be returned unopened.)
We will accept query submissions in both electronic and traditional form from all Agents.
We will accept submissions from all attendees of any conference any staff member has spoken at for a period of 3 months following the conference. In order for your manuscript to be considered, all envelopes must be marked with the conference name. If at the conference you are asked to submit an electronic copy instead, please follow all instructions on the handout that will have been provided.
If you have not had the chance to meet one of us at a conference and you are unagented, you may be eligible to submit your manuscript to the Bloom Award. Please read the award's guidelines to see if your manuscript will qualify.
These guidelines will be in effect until further notice. Please follow them carefully as it makes less work for us and for you.
