Trafalgar Square accepts unsolicited book proposals and manuscripts. If you would like to submit your idea for consideration, we ask that you supply the following:

  • A letter of introduction explaining your experience and qualifications for writing on your subject and why you feel your book will be a valuable contribution to equestrian literature.
  • An indication of who you see as an audience for your book.
  • An outline and a detailed table of contents.
  • One to three sample chapters so we can assess your style and writing ability. (If you have a complete manuscript and would like to send it, that is fine, too.)
  • A general idea of how the book will be illustrated—a rough estimate of the number of photos, line drawings, charts, etc. Please include sample art if available.
  • A general idea of how you plan to promote yourself and your book once it is published—teaching, speaking, or clinic schedules; social media (your Twitter, Facebook, blog, and web presence); trade show and exposition appearances; and anything else that gives us an idea of how we will be able to market your book to the public.
  • A note indicating whether the material is under multiple submission. (Please note: It is a general publishing courtesy to only submit a book proposal to one publisher at a time.)
