Thank you for your interest in our submissions process.
As an Independent Publisher, we offer higher than average royalties for both ebook and print sales, but we do not pay an advance. In exchange, we expect Submission Ready Manuscripts, good attitudes, and cooperation from our authors. Please read the following guidelines carefully and do your homework by looking over our sites, check our listings at distributors, and ask authors about us. Do not expect us to operate as a traditional publisher or an e-publisher you may have dealt with before. Be prepared to provide input if you submit to us, but also to accept our restrictions as this is not self-publication. Please do not submit material for which you do not currently hold the "right" to publish.
We do accept and publish some manuscripts which are "out of publication" or were "previously" published. These are decided on a case by case basis.
We reserve the right to refuse to publish any story or manuscript which is intentionally offensive, promotes terrorism or extreme violence, or is anti-American or anti-Christian.
What We Will Consider:Traditional Romance (M/F) (Sexual scenes are accepted if tastefully presented and an integral part of the story)
Mild Horror, Paranormal, Speculative Fiction
Young Adult, Children's Stories
What We DO NOT Publish:
We prefer to leave certain topics to publishers and authors who excel in those fields (such as sexual specialties and erotica).
Therefore, we WILL NOT ACCEPT the following:
Non-traditional Romance - No GLBDSM
Graphic Non-consensual Sexual Acts (If rape must be included in a Suspense or Historical, it must be presented in a non-graphic manner)
Graphically Explicit Sexual Scenes for Titillation
Vulgar Language, Curses Not Vital to the Story
Horror with Graphic Gore (Bloody is acceptable, but not continuous "descriptive" hacking)
Coffee-Table Books, Picture Books
Get Rich Quick Schemes
