Elva Resa Publishing is an independent publishing company based in St Paul, Minnesota, whose mission is to make a positive difference in people’s lives. All submissions should clearly support our mission.

Manuscript Submissions

Due to a large increase in manuscript submissions, we have changed our submissions process to a call-for-manuscripts-only for all imprints. We are NOT accepting manuscript submissions at this time. Thank you for your interest.

Elva Resa
Our primary imprint specializes in resources for and about military families.

Alma Little
Our children’s imprint publishes beautiful, meaningful books that bring a diverse world of possibilities and opportunities to children of all ages. We share our proceeds with organizations that help make those possibilities and opportunities a reality. Alma Little is a general interest children’s imprint and does not focus on military family lifestyle.

Our inspirational imprint helps people reflect on and celebrate life–at work, play, and all aspects of their lives.

Submission Guidelines
For all imprints, please follow these guidelines:

We accept ONLY electronic submissions and only during a call for manuscripts. Please do NOT mail us a hardcopy. More detailed guidelines will be posted with the next Call for Manuscripts.

For your reference and future planning, here is a PDF example of our September 2013 Call for Manuscripts Guidelines and an example from our February 2016 Call for Coloring Book Illustrators.

Thank you for your interest in Elva Resa Publishing.
