Submitting A Manuscript
As the publisher, Gratisbooks
reserves the right to refuse to post texts that are deemed to
be inimical to its best interests or offensive to readers in
ways not acceptable to us. We do not intend to be a site for
pornography or revolution by violent means! That doesn't mean
that we will limit thought to any special persuasion in terms
of economic or political system.
There is no requirement for authors to assign any print media
publishing rights to Gratisbooks, but our services as a print
publisher may be sought before or after your work is added to
our lists. We require only the license from you to publish via
the internet exclusively via our home page and the gratisbooks
system. If you choose to give us first right of refusal for publishing
rights in accordance with our standard contract, we will discount
our regular storage rates.
Gratisbooks limits storage capacity to a size intended to accommodate
most manuscripts with limited arrays of graphics. Photo intensive
books will require extra space and related costs. Typical current
download time constraints make it inadvisable to try to encourage
'browsers' or 'readers' when large download requirements make
it impractical to try to reach readers in this manner.
If you wish to add your work to our system, please use the e-mail form provided here and tell us
your requirements.The feedback should include category label,
title, author, and a subject abstract of fifty words. Once this
has been sent please send all manuscripts in a Microsoft Word
or ASCII text format to All
table of contents, prefaces, chapters, indexes should be marked with the
manuscript with indentations or underlines for headers. We would appreciate
it if you would send all images separately and note in the manuscript where
they should be embedded.
