Payment: Royalties
Theme: Horror novels, novellas, and short story collections

Novel and Collection Submissions

Looking for a publisher?

From now until August 31st, we’ll be considering novels, novellas and short story collections for publications. Please note that as a small press, we make use of services like KDP and IngramSpark to print our publications. For more information, get in touch at [email protected].

To submit your work, please email [email protected] with the subject heading “BOOK TITLE – AUTHOR NAME – SUBMISSION”. Include the following in your email:

– The first three chapters of your manuscript, attached as a Word document. Please follow the submission guidelines at the top of this page.

– A cover letter and synopsis in the body of your email. Up to 100 words for the cover letter, and up to 500 for the synopsis. If you’re submitting a collection, please include a general outline of the collection in place of a synopsis, and key details from some of the stories.

Submission Guidelines

Please refer to individual submissions calls for guidelines on theme, length, and where to send your work, etc. as these can vary from book to book.

In general, please follow these guidelines. Any submissions not following these guidelines may, unfortunately, be rejected.

1. Email your submission to the email address that corresponds to the submissions call you are applying for. For example, email any “Pulp Harvest” submissions to [email protected]. Please include your name and the title of your submission in the subject header.

2. Please make sure your work is double-spaced and in a 12pt font. Please DO NOT use the “tab” or “space” key to indent your paragraphs – instead, use the ruler at the top of the page. 

3. Make sure you’re happy with the piece you’re submitting. Most of our submissions windows are fairly wide, and we’re always happy to take into consideration edits at a later stage, but we want you to be as confident in the work you’re submitting as you can be. 

4. You will notice that the email address for each of the upcoming submissions windows is open, and accessible from this page – please do not send us your submission until the window opens, as it may not be considered. Thank you!

If you have any questions, please email [email protected]. Good luck!
