Everything does not have to be perfect, but strive to maintain excellence so that we can see what type of product you have and how it can be used. We have many people that create products meant for a certain audience or genre, but it is found to be rated more for another. We have some that are quite the opposite. Many of us enjoy having a team of interested people helping to develop our worlds, stories, and ideas. It’s really powerful and it makes your skills improve. Once we know what you have, we can work with you to push it in the direction that you envision.
We pay royalties on monies received from sales in all outlets. Royalties are paid on a calendar quarter basis by company check or PayPal.
Please allow 4 – 6 weeks for review. Every effort will be made to expedite this process and to give each project our fullest attention.
Visual Adjectives accepts simultaneous submissions provided that the author or agent makes this clear in a cover letter and immediately informs us if and when another publisher has tendered an offer or has accepted the work for publication.
Your interest in Visual Adjectives is greatly appreciated.
