We're dedicated to bringing well-written, character-focused stories to readers with a hunger for the good stuff and an understanding that quality fiction isn't found only on the shelves in a chain bookstore. We offer an alternative path to publication for authors who want to have more control over their work and are ready to thrive in a professional and supportive environment.

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.
