Mirror World Publishing Is Open To Novels And Novellas (Early Listing)
November 30, 2022
Submission Window: October 1st to November 30th, 2022
Payment: Royalties (50% of net profits)
Theme: All forms of speculative fiction and more!
We’re looking for Escapism Fiction…
Our goal is to provide readers with the ability to escape the mundane through wildly creative fiction. We’re looking for books that act as gateways to other worlds, times, or versions of reality. We prefer strong story telling, engaging openings, and compelling character development as well as imaginative settings, vivid world building, and interesting themes. If your manuscript transports a reader somewhere else, tells an engaging story and then brings them back feeling like they have experienced something unique, then we want to publish your book!
As for genres, we’re looking primarily for…
We don’t like to limit ourselves, so if you have something you think would fit with our current list of published works, please send it.
We’d rather take a chance outside our comfort zones than miss something great.
A blend of any two or more of the above genres
Cross-genre, mixed genre, or things that don’t fit genre norms
Adult, New Adult, Young Adult, Middle Grade, or Children’s (please specify your target market in your query letter)
As for types of manuscripts, we consider primarily:
Novels (125,000 words maximum)
Novellas (25,000 words minimum)
Graphic Novels or illustrated mixed media (art included)
That being said, here’s a list of things we’re NOT interested in:
Memoirs or autobiographies
Self-help or inspirational fiction
Hard Sci-Fi or Military Sci-Fi
Horror / Thriller / Suspense / True crime / Mystery (elements of these are okay)
Christian or other religious fiction
Contemporary fiction / Contemporary romance
Poetry or short stories (on their own or in collections)
As a small, independent publishing house, we offer…
We partner with our authors to make the books we produce the best they can be and aim to market them together for maximum exposure. We’re proud to be able to offer our books as both paperbacks and e-books. We offer higher royalties than the industry standard (50% of net profits), author copies at wholesale rate, and worldwide distribution. We respond to all queries we receive within six to eight weeks with a personal response, including suggestions on how to improve your manuscript even if it is not the right fit for us, so there is no need to send a follow-up inquiry.
To submit to Mirror World Publishing, please send the following:
A query letter (clearly stating the genre, word count, and target audience of your manuscript)
A one-page or less synopsis of the plot, including the ending
The first three chapters or an equivalent sample (in the case of novellas and illustrated mixed media), attached as a .doc or .docx file
A sample of the art, if applicable
All submissions should be sent to: [email protected] during our general submissions window ONLY.
