Submission Notes & Guidelines

  • Submissions and unsolicited review copies do not guarantee acceptance or content inclusion.
  • If your submission is accepted, you will need to provide either a retail copy or ARC (advance reader copy) of your book for review. Physical copies are always preferred, but eBook and NetGalley versions are acceptable.
  • If the book you are submitting is a sequel or part of a series, please consider providing all relevant books from the series for consideration and inclusion in promotional imagery.
  • Indie and digital-only authors should have professional quality covers and editing to be considered.
  • Age demographics welcome: adult, new adult, young adult, and middle grade.
  • Please allow 3-5 business days for response.

Books we love to read and feature:

  • Thoughtful and challenging stories and perspectives
  • Character driven action & adventure
  • Diverse authors & character perspectives
  • Stories with unique world-building
  • Genre mashups
  • Novellas

Stuff we tend to avoid:

  • “Retellings” and “reimagined” takes on previously existing stories
  • Self proclaimed “Message Free” stories
  • Genre-clones of popular books or TV series
  • Run-of-the-mill vampire/werewolf/witches/etc.
  • Erotica (sexy stuff is fine, of course, as long as it’s not the primary focus of the novel)
  • Horror of the splatter or torture variety
