For a number of years, our policy has been not to accept non-fiction submissions.
There are two reasons for this:
1. The potential for harm if non-fiction contains mistakes is greater than for fiction.
2. When we set the rule, the majority of spam titles submitted were non-fiction and it took too long to sift through them.
However, we've found that memoirs share more in common with fiction than non-fiction in terms of the issues above. As a result, we will now allow submissions of memoirs and autobiographies (but not biographies by third parties).
Thank you for being understanding and please, enjoy submitting your memoirs.
