Writing Opportunity: Submission Check-off List

Are you all ready to submit your manuscript to Kaeden Books?

Let’s take a look at this check-off list to double check you have all your ducks in a row!

For starters, I always like to reread the Submission Guidelines right before I submit my manuscript to make sure I’m not forgetting anything.

First Post on Cover Letter

Second Post on Cover Letter

Third Post on Cover Letter

Fourth and Final Post on Cover Letter

_____Be sure that you save a copy of your manuscript with all research footnotes intact.

_____Then save a copy with all footnotes removed. This will be the copy you submit to Kaeden Books.

_____Format the first page of your manuscript correctly

_____Format the header with your name, title, and page number

_____Format your manuscript to be formatted just like your mentor text

_____Include a surprise ending to your story

_____Table of Contents




_____Word List

_____Word Count

Discussion Questions
_____Part 1
_____Part 2
_____Part 3

_____Be sure to include your SASE

Now put everything in a large manila envelope, write the address on the cover, and it’s ready to go. Yay!!!!!

If you actually factually followed all the way through and submitted your manuscript to Kaeden Books, let us know so we can share your joy!

And if not, don’t feel bad! This was a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs and ups and downs of the process of writing a nonfiction manuscript and submitting it to an educational publisher.

But guess what?! As I promised, we’re going to repeat this whole process once again and in just three weeks I’ll walk you through all these steps to submit a nonfiction manuscript to Kaeden Books!

So get ready and be on the lookout for the upcoming post where we’ll get started on our next adventure right here on my blog.

  2. My submission to Kaeden went in the mail yesterday and I already have a topic chosen for your three-week challenge. I enjoyed writing the first one so much I can’t wait to write more. Thank you for your guidance!
