How to Evaluate a Micro/Small Genre Press as a Prospective Author
Debut Horror Novel Series – **Submissions now open as of May 1, 2023**
#1 – Beulah by Christi Nogle (Published Jan 25, 2022)
#2 The Briars by Stephanie Parent (Published May 9, 2023)
We’re looking for submissions for 40k+ word manuscripts from authors who’ve never published a novel. Paying $500 signing bonus + $500 advance upon publication, and a 60% (author) royalty share on physical and electronic editions of the book.
You’re welcome to submit (1) complete, original, and unpublished 40k+ word manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have at least (2) paid horror writing credits and have never published a novel. If you have novellas and short story collections in print, you’re still eligible.
We’re looking for horror stories in the vein of what we’ve previously published, not dystopian science fiction nor dark fantasy, and we likely won’t publish YA. The first two books we signed were 90k-100k words, though we typically prefer stories in the 60k-80k range.
Please include a synopsis of your story, your Twitter, author website, two of your writing credits, and a brief bio with your manuscript. We will read submissions until we sign a contract for a novel. At which point the submissions window will close until after publication of said novel.
We aim to release one novel per year in this series.
