“Gabriel Zuchtrigel focuses on Paestum on the Tyrrhenian coast of Italy, where many discoveries have been made—including novel findings about ritual and daily activities in the Classic era.

Categories. We get more submissions to children’s books than others, and while we enjoy children’s books just as much in the industry—please keep sending them—we’re looking at more of the following to help balance our roundup. Would like:

  • adult story
  • Adult nonfiction – specifically the narrative nonfiction, political, historical, biographical, memoir, and philosophical categories
  • young adult

Repeat submission. We get great submissions from many parts of the world and once we’ve got a title, we’d like to give other work a chance to appear rather than repeat that title—as long as there’s a title around the one we used. Don’t develop big news, it’s a good candidate for the second list. If a title of yours has appeared in our rights roundup before but there’s a good reason you think it should be listed again, please be sure to drop us an email and let us know ([email protected] ).

We look forward to hearing from you.
