to Contact: Send query letter first and include
self-addressed, stamped envelope. Do not send complete manuscript

sample chapter or sample poems, and any other information
relevant to the rationale, content, audience, etc., for

nonfiction books pay 10% royalties, with an advance on royalties
of $500-$1000 (average) and 10 complimentary copies of the
book. For scholarly titles payment is generally in copies.
Note: Writers should take the utmost care
in assuring that their manuscripts are clean, grammatically
impeccable, and have perfect spelling. This is true not
only of the English but the Spanish as well. All accent
and other diacritical marks need to be in place. We are
interested in publishing creative literature that treats
the U.S. Hispanic experience in a distinctive, creative,
revealing way. The kinds of books that we publish we keep
in print for a very long time irrespective of sales. We
are busy establishing and preserving a U.S. Hispanic canon
of creative literature.
