Nomadic Devotion Books accepts query letters with regards to single-author projects that accentuate spirituality and/or locality within the creative nonfiction genre, such as memoirs, essay collections, locational narratives, and unique works on gastronomy.  If we are interested in your query letter, we will request the first 20 pages of the manuscript.  If these 20 pages interest us, we will then request the complete manuscript.  Please do not email us during this process.  When we have made a decision, we will let you know.  This can take between 2-4 months.  We do pay a small advance plus royalties, and our books are sustainably printed in the United States and distributed throughout North America by IPG.
