BOOK SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Fisher King Press publishes and distributes the work of certified Jungian analysts concerning the study of analytical psychology, myth, archetypal symbolism, and dreams. For all other genres contact Genoa House.
We do not consider proposals with a view to turning them into books, nor do we consider theses, dissertations, essays, individual chapters, or proposals with a view to turning them into books.
We make decisions only on completed and professionally edited manuscripts. (If you need an editor, we can refer you to a professional.) Rarely do we make recommendations as to content. The manuscript should be prepared using the standard Fisher King Press word doc template. Good quality black and white copies of figures, photos and illustrations, should be provided as separate files – not embedded within the text. We do not print in color (except for the cover). For a clear understanding of our submissions requirements, download a word doc file of the Fisher King Press Manuscript Preparation Guidelines/Template.
- We favor manuscripts between 40–60,000 words in length.
- References should be included as Footnotes in accordance with the “Humanities style” as described in the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition. example: 1. Wendy Doniger, Splitting the Difference (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1999), 65. (The use of 'Ibid.' or 'Op. cit.' is not acceptable.)
- A Bibliography should be provided in accordance with the “Humanities style” as described in the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition. example: Doniger, Wendy. Splitting the Difference. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1999.
- It is the author’s responsibility to contract with iWigWam to provide printer ready cover and interior files according to Fisher King Press specifications. iWigWam has produced a great many Fisher King Press publications and they have these specifications on file.

- It is the author’s responsibility to secure permission to use substantial material from other copyrighted works (except for “fair use”—see The Chicago Manual of Style for guidelines). Permissions included endorsements and images supplied as potential cover art.
- We contract to pay a royalty of 10% of the actual selling price on each copy sold, less taxes, shipping, and returns.
- We also pay a bonus if a title sell 2500 copies within 5 years of the original publication date.
- We do not make advance payments on contracts.
