Lazy Bee Scripts
Publishing Process

The Publishing Process
"... he dreamed the dream of all those who publish books, which was to have so much gold in your pockets that you would have to employ two people just to hold your trousers up."
-Terry Pratchett, Maskerade
Publication Process
Lazy Bee Scripts is fully open to new submissions from authors, provided that they follow our publication process.
Please follow the eight-step submission process below (starting at step 1).

Note that if you want more thourough feedback on your work, then you will need to (pay to) use the Appraisal process.
Why this process?
We are dealing with hundreds of authors.
We need to keep track of our dealings with all of them.
Without a process, we would lose track.
  1. Please fill in one of the flavours of our query form
  2. We'll respond by eMail (with terms and conditions if we like the idea, with a polite refusal if we don't)
  3. You submit the script (normally attached to an e-mail), formatted according to the Lazy Bee Scripts guidelines for plays or the Lazy Bee Scripts guidelines for Interactive Murder Mysteries, as appropriate.
  4. We read the submission and either reject it or accept it for publication. If accepted, then
  5. The writer may be asked to submit a revised or corrected text (including corrections to rhyme) and any original music in one of the accepted formats
  6. We proof read and correct the text (and, score, where applicable), edit and format according to the house style.
  7. If the editing makes significant changes, then we will return the script to the author for checking
  8. When all parties are satisfied, we will publish on the Internet and on paper, publicise the publication, then settle back and wait for the orders to roll in. (Sometimes it is a long wait.)
