Our 2018 open submissions window is closing today. We would like to take a moment to reflect upon our journey so far, and to thank all those who have come with us on it.
In the middle of July, 2018, three intrepid souls kicked off the bold idea of starting a new publishing company that focused on the author, the craft of writing, and seeking out amazing storytelling to share with the world. Since then, Kyanite Publishing has grown to present stories from over sixty authors; and continues to grow.
“I’m blown away at the response we received from the writing community as a whole. The level of enthusiasm expressed about what we are doing here – on a daily basis – is inspiring. We have received over one hundred submissions of novelettes, novellas, and novels to be considered for publication. We have signed contracts on about twenty of those, and still have many exciting stories working through our acquisitions process.” — B.K. Bass, Acquisitions Director, Kyanite Publishing, LLC
All of us at Kyanite Publishing would like to thank all of the authors, artists, editors, and marketers who have reached out with a desire to contribute to building this into something amazing. Without all of you, we would not be where we are today.
Our 2018 open submission window ran from August 1st to October 31st. This window will close as of midnight, November 1st, 2018. After this time we will be accepting submissions only by invitation, with the exception of submissions for our journal, anthology projects, and special calls for submissions.
We still have many other projects in the works that we will be accepting open submissions for, such as our Remnants anthology and ‘Punk-Genre anthology. We anticipate more projects like these in the future, and will be looking for submissions outside of the open submission window for them.
Our next open submission window will be in September of 2019, from the 1st through the 30th. While this window is much shorter than our last, we feel that there is adequate awareness and lead time for authors to prepare for this.
We are still working through a lot of submissions, and will continue to do so in the coming months. If you have work submitted already, we will be in touch!
Thank you once again to everybody who has joined us on this amazing journey! We can’t wait to see what we discover together!
