Submission Guidelines for Clients and Ghostly Rites Anthologies.

Untitled design

We have NEW SUBMISSION GUIDELINES for clients and or anyone submitting work for an anthology at Plaisted Publishing (Author Assist).

This is what you need to know!

All work needs to be automatically set up for when you write, this includes – Titles, Chapter Headings, Indents, etc. You won’t need a Contents Page or page numbers at this stage. Use Styles on your HOME tab if you use MS Word to set up the following.

  • 6 x 9 Manuscript
  • 1.8 cm Margins, Headers, and Footers
  • 1.15 Spacing
  • Justified
  • Garamond, size 12

Make yourself a template to use with each manuscript you write or ask for a copy. We only give these templates out to clients and for our Anthology submissions.

In the Header, you need to have:-

  • Author Name
  • Date
  • Email Address
  • Book Title
  • Word Count

Body of Manuscript:-

  • Auto Indents – 0.3 – 0.5 cm (Never use Spacebar or Tabs it is unprofessional and your submission will be rejected).
  • Automatic Titles and Chapters via HEADINGS 1, 2 & 3
  • DON’T use SHIFT & ENTER (Soft Return) for a new line, let it move automatically. ENTER is for New Paragraphs.

IF YOU DON’T KNOW HOW…PLEASE ASK! WE CAN HELP GET YOU SORTED AND WILL HAVE INFORMATION ON HOW TO USE STYLES TO YOUR ADVANTAGE.
