Skywatcher Press welcomes novella and novel length submissions from all authors. We publish novels in the Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror genres, as well as action, adventure, and mysteries. We are seeking well written and edited manuscripts with strong plots and developed characters in any and all facets of these genres. The most important quality we are seeking is to open your manuscript and be taken on a thrilling journey. How you pull that off is uniquely yours, and our goal is to only publish the absolute highest quality books which stand out in the genre. We produce books which suck the reader in and compel them from start to finish. If you want to send us a genre niche like TEOTWAWKI, SHTF, Kaiju, Zombies, Sword and Sorcery, Steampunk, etc… then bring something unique to the table, change the rules, blow our minds with your awesomeness. Or deliver it to us with such an unrepentant cast of intriguing characters and cleverness that we simply can’t say no. We enjoy thought provoking concepts in science fiction that reflect modern society in horrifying or fascinating ways.

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
