Yup, you’re reading that right!
Starting today (August 1st), we are completely open to new titles by anyone who wishes to submit their novel to us. You don’t need an agent; we accept work completely unsolicited. This is for one month only – we’ll close again at midnight on the 31st of August, GMT.
Use the form on our submissions page to send in your work, but please read the guidelines first! Unlike many other publishers, we don’t expect you to jump through too many hoops, and we do accept electronic submissions (so no spending £5 trying to get your printed manuscript to us in one piece).
Genres accepted include Fantasy, Young Adult, Science Fiction, Steampunk, Literary Fiction, Dystopian, LGBT Fiction (any), and Short Story collections. We have already published all of these as well as horror, mystery, thriller, anthro/furry, and women’s fiction. You can view our current catalogue here.
Need some time to get it finished? You have until September 1st. On that date, submissions will close, and you’ll have to wait till next time.
We’ve put together a document that outlines the general process, which you can see online here, (The Submission Process) but we’re more than happy to answer any questions you might still have – just head on over to our contact page and drop us a note!
We respond to every submission we receive within a month of you sending it across to us, so there’s no waiting around, wondering if we actually got it, or worrying that you didn’t get our response. In fact, if it’s been more than a month and you haven’t heard from us, we encourage you to get back in touch to see where we are in the process of looking over your work!
Good luck! We look forward to hearing from you, and please spread the word! If you have friends who are writers we’d love to hear from them.
