10-3 Publishing and Book Manuscript Format

(c) 2010, Mona Leeson Vanek

If you aren't sure how to format your manuscript William Shunn's site shows and explains how: http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html

Cover page format of the manuscript of your novel
UPPER LEFT OF COVER PAGE:
  • first and last name
  • address
  • phone home
  • phone work
  • email
  • [skip space]
  • 100,000 words (round down to next whole number)

UPPER RIGHT OF COVER PAGE (including the agent/agency, is a good reference.)
  • name of agent/agency
  • address
  • phone work
  • email
CENTERED ON THE COVER PAGE:
  • TITLE
  • [skip space]
  • A [genre] novel (for example, A mystery novel)
  • [skip space]
  • by YOUR NAME
OR, if you have a pen name - by YOUR pen name. If you're already published in one genre and are now slipping over into another genre, it reinforces that point, which you should have already made in your query.
