From the Ingalls Publishing Group guidelines:

Marketing networks are vital in selling commercial quantities of any product, and books are no exception. Experience has taught us we are most successful in working with authors and novels in the Southeast: North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Tennessee or Georgia where we can be in close contact with the author, and utilize our marketing and sales network.

Therefore we are not currently considering submissions of new novels unless the author and setting of the book is in these states. Story content must involve adventure, murder, mystery, humor, romance, or historical events.

We encourage authors who meet the above conditions, especially first time authors who plan a series, to submit a synopsis of their book’s story and a brief resume’ of their education and work-related background, particularly as related to your book’s content.
