Open Submission Window Closing Soon!

Our open submission window for this year will be closing in two weeks on November 1st, 2018. The community response to our first open submission window has been overwhelming, and we have been fortunate to receive a very high number of quality submissions as evidenced by our growing lineup of exciting releases scheduled for 2019.

We still have around sixty submissions to review, including those we have requested manuscripts for. As we do not out-source consulting services for our acquisitions process, there are only three of us to review these submissions on top of working on the production of upcoming titles. Our decisions on making publishing offers requires a unanimous vote, as well, so all three of us need time to review each manuscript. We will continue to review submissions in as timely a manner as possible, but it would be reasonable to expect up to six months for turn-around on some titles. Also, our release schedule for 2019 is almost full, so offers will soon be made for titles to be published in 2020.

We expect to have an open submissions window again in the fall of 2019, but the length of the window is yet to be decided. Most likely, it will be a 30 or 45-day window. In the meantime, expect to see open calls for submissions throughout the year for specific genres or themes.

If you would like to submit a partial manuscript before November 1st, please feel free to do so. The genres we are currently most interested in are speculative horror, classic fantasy (sword and sorcery, high fantasy, epic fantasy, heroic fantasy, etc), military science fiction, post apocalyptic, space opera, steampunk, cyberpunk, and other ‘punk genres.

Please visit our Submissions page for more details on our submissions guidelines.
