Transformation Media Books is dedicated to publishing innovative works that nourish the body, mind, and spirit, written by authors whose ideas and messages make a difference in the world.

TMB publishes both print books and e-books on various topics such as health, fitness, spirituality, and true stories.

Our focus is body/mind/spirit nonfiction, but fiction serving our mission will be considered.

Please follow the below guidelines as closely as possible to ensure your submission is complete and can be reviewed.

  • We require that you submit a finished, polished, final-edit manuscript. While books will be copyedited/proofread prior to publication, manuscripts requiring more in-depth edits will likely be rejected.
  • Please inform us if your manuscript is under consideration elsewhere, and notify us promptly if it is accepted for publication. We will do our best to review and provide a prompt response if possible, so you can make an informed decision.
  • Depending on our submission queue, our preliminary review process can take several months to respond and request your full manuscript if we are interested.
  • We do not accept previously published work or reprints.
  • Do not submit the same manuscript to both Transformation Media Books and Open Books Press. If you feel your manuscript would fit well with either imprint, please include a note in the cover letter section and/or your query letter, and we will consider it for both imprints.

Submit the following as a single Word or other text document, in this order:

  1. A professional query letter with word or poem/page count, 25–30-word pitch, a brief author bio, and any other relevant details about you or your work.
  2. A synopsis of your book, 250 words or less.
  3. Your marketing plan: Who is your target reader and how do you plan to reach them? Also include your platform, which can include: links to your website, blog, and social networking sites; an email/mailing list count; past sales figures; organizations or other avenues for promotion you have; etc. Authors with an established or growing platform are preferred; involvement in promotion is required.
  4. The first 50 pages of your manuscript.
