We are a unique publishing company and will be seeking authors whose work is inspirational, motivational, or educational. We are especially interested in Memoirs and Personal Testimony. No erotica or horror, please. Our submission guidelines are listed below:

1. We are currently only accepting electronic submissions (ie. Microsoft Word files). Please send to: highergroundbooksandmedia

2. Use a single, clear font, 12 point size. The best to use is Courier or Courier New.

3. Use clear black text on a white background.

4. Include your name and contact information at the top left of the first page. Put an accurate word count at the top right.

5. If you write under a pseudonym, put that beneath the title but your real name in the top left of the first page.
