> We have almost no female writers ...

I'm sure that both Mongoose and Moon Design would be happy to get submissions from female authors - the problem is getting the women to send book ideas in!

You want to see more women writing? Well, Alison, there *is* something *you* can do...
(And no, "I can't write" is probably not true - I bet you actually can, once you decide to do it. And anyway, that's what editors, writing workshops and your own game groups are for - to help you get your ideas out and in publishable form. On the other hand, "I don't have time to write" may be true or not, I don't know your situation :-) )

It doesn't even have to be a full book submission - it may be that one or both of the companies are/could be open to compilatioon books, with different authors working on different chapters (that format works well for un-connected scenarios, cults, etc.). I know a lot of writers who got their start by working on a single chapter of a book, instead of trying to write a whole book out of the starting gate. (Okay, I *did* write a whole book as my first work, and it was crap, but still, my contributions in the last 10 years have been bits and pieces, not whole volumes).
