If it has been less than 12 months, it’s likely still in a queue with our submissions team. However, if you haven’t heard back from REUTS, and it’s been longer than 12 months, please consider it a pass.
Absolutely! Agents, please email one of our directors directly with your proposal, a synopsis and the full manuscript.
Yes, absolutely! REUTS Publications is a firm believer in collaboration . . . we do it all the time! So we’d love to see your co-written submission. Just make sure you denote the two (or more) authors in the form or in your query letter.
We accept all genres, as long as your manuscript falls within the YA/NA age category, and does not include erotics. If you have any doubts about whether or not your genre would fit within our collection, feel free to contact us before querying: submissions@REUTS.com.
As long as our submission windows is open, sure! Go right ahead! Though it’s more likely we’ll accept one manuscript at first. Please keep in mind it’ll take us a little bit to get to both submissions.
Believe it or not, we really do. It’s one of the reasons we’re unable to get back to you right away. A submission is read by multiple REUTS team members (including the Acquisitions Team), and then discussed.
Yes! And we encourage you to do so. If you’ve taken the time to go through and improve your manuscript, by all means, please re-query us! Just make sure you note that you’re re-sending your manuscript for consideration somewhere within your cover letter.
This is another gray area. We’ll be most likely to publish a previously published novel if we express interest in the sequel to said previously published novel. Please do not submit a previously published novel to REUTS if you do not have the publishing rights to it (e.g. the original publisher still maintains publishing rights for X remaining years, or may have rights to all future editions) In addition, along with your submission, please explain your reasons for seeking new representation, as well as any sales or demographic information you might have.
This is a big maybe. If you’re planning on submitting an unfinished manuscript, you should, at the very least, have a synopsis outlined and know what will happen to end or conclude the story. We prefer that you submit with at least 20,000 words already written, and that your manuscript sample is the best quality possible, as we’re more critical of unfinished manuscripts than those that are already complete.
Yes, and our author-focused multi-book contracts also allow the author flexibility to take their follow-up novels elsewhere without incurring a termination fee.
Yes! We distribute everywhere we can through the Lightening Source, LLC. distribution system (which uses Ingram, and includes electronic distribution). And, at the very least, readers from overseas are more than welcome to purchase directly through the REUTS.com website, for both print and electronic copies.
We have a global team, and global authors—that’s the beauty of REUTS as an online-based business. Help us diversify our collection by submitting if you live overseas!
Absolutely not! Kids from 2 to 92, come-one, come-all!
If we have requested a full or partial, please send us your updated manuscript by emailing submissions@REUTS.com. If you haven't heard from us about your query and sample pages, please wait before contacting.
That's correct, and it has changed. REUTS now publishes YA through Adult titles.
If you need a file format other than PDF, Mobi or ePub, please open a Support Ticket and we'll make sure you get the format needed.
