Manuscript Submission Guidelines & Information

Thank you for your interest in Alexandrian Archives, Inc. Below you will find detailed information about our submission guidelines and the genre of books we publish. This will allow you the opportunity to assess if your manuscript or article meets our current criteria. If you feel that we are a good fit for your current title you will be able to query us via a simple submission form.

Book Manuscript Submission Information:
We are always seeking fresh new approaches and topic information.

We currently have a strong interest in any and all non-fiction works.

A short list of best-selling subject areas include magic/magick, Wicca, paganism, witchcraft, paranormal, astrology, tarot books, shamanism, alternative health, self-help, herbs, religion, (any), spirituality, ancient mysteries, ancient civilizations, mythology, archeology, occult and ancient history.

Please note, these subjects cover a very broad range of content, as this is only a basic analysis of the genre we specialize in. Our emphasis is on the practical: how it works, how it is done and self-help material.

Currently, we are seeking authors who have previously been traditionally published. Although, we will consider self-published authors who have a proven record of success. Please remember, writing is an art form with specific formats and rules. Please be prepared to perform additional work and refinement to your script, if needed, unless it has already been professionally edited.
