About Iriswhite

Q: Is Iriswhite a vanity publisher?
A: No. Iriswhite is not a vanity publisher. We do not charge writers to publish their books and we are extremely selective when deciding which manuscripts to publish under the Iriswhite imprint. We screen and publish selected manuscripts based on content, quality of writing and market potential.

Submitting Manuscripts

Q: How many unsolicited manuscripts may I submit?
A: There is no limit to the number of unsolicited manuscripts you may submit but the manuscripts must be sent one at a time, each in its own submission packet. Read more about manuscript submission packets in our Author's Guide.

A: Yes. You must own the copyright and publishing rights to the work you submit for consideration.
