Fiction Believed Defunct

What are we looking for? Think about our name. Think magical, dark, or chilling stories in many genres, with a preference for urban fantasy, fantasy, suspense, thriller, mystery, and horror. That being said, of less interest are stories about benevolent teenage vampires or schools for wizards. If you can say, “It’s just like (fill in the title of a book here),” then we are not the publisher for you. Stories should be engaging from the first line, so hook us on page one! Have strong characters, unique plot lines, and well-written prose.

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.
