Please Note:

1. Hakurosya asks for your patience with our review process. It takes
time for them to be read, reviewed and decided upon. Please do not
contact us to find out about the status of your manuscript. We will
be in contact with you when we have news about our publication
interest.
2. Make sure you have provided full contact information details,
including your e-mail address.
3. While all care is taken, please do not send original documents or
illustrations. Never send us the only copy of your book.
4. Do not forget to read the Application Terms and Conditions.
5. Be sure to print and fill out and include the Application Form.
6. Your manuscript should be on plain white paper, double-spaced, using
only one side of the page. Do not staple or otherwise bind your
manuscript; a paper clip will suffice. If you use a computer and
printer, do not submit low-resolution dot matrix printouts; they
will not be read. Please do not use a fancy font and please make
sure you use a font large enough to read easily.
7. Unfortunately, Hakurosya Publishing can not return any material
submitted to us from overseas.
