Paper Dog Books 8

See other projects related to this listing


Paper Dog Books is a micro-press run by writer and software engineer Nicole Jacobson. I started this press to publish speculative fiction at the edge of genre. The "edge of genre", huh, what does that mean? Maybe its more erotic. Maybe its more political. Maybe its more philosophical. Maybe it swims outside the lanes of conventional Science Fiction / Fantasy classification. Maybe it defies easy marketing and standard plot lines to take a swing at being something else. You know that moment before you step through the door of your house or apartment or trailer or chateau or temple or giant shoe or wigwam or igloo or kendo or federally mandated penitentiary cell and your hand is on the door knob and you think for just one second, just one beat - I don't think I know what's on the other side today? Maybe its like that. Let's make books like that.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For book publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
