Our Guidelines include, but are not limited to:

  • ​Any character involved in explicit sexual acts under the age of eighteen (18). For obvious reasons, we would like to stay on the good side of the law!
  • Bestiality
  • Incest
  • Pedophilia
  • Necrophilia - Does not apply to "undead" characters
  • Hate messages that are directed toward any gender, race, religion, or sexuality

We understand and acknowledge the backgrounds that some characters may have, however, we will not permit any explicit content regarding child molestation and child rape. References, dialogue in explanation, symptoms that come from such acts, therapy sessions, and so forth, are permitted as long as the characters discussing such acts are over the age of eighteen (18).

We also understand that many darker books contain plot lines involving murder, rape, sex trafficking, prostitution, so forth. This is acceptable as long as all of the characters engaged in explicit acts are over the age of eighteen (18). We will only consider manuscripts that are tasteful in their delivery. We reserve the right to decline any manuscript, for any reason, even if it falls within our guidelines.

Submission Requirements:

​Please allow 4-6 weeks for a response

  • The manuscript must be complete. If this title has been previously published, you must provide proof that you own the rights to the story.
  • While the manuscript does not have to be professionally edited (we will take care of that for you!), it should be as free from grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors as possible. Proofread your manuscript and have others read it. Beta readers are invaluable, especially if they know your writing style. Ask them their opinion on weaknesses and changes needed. Ensure that your manuscript is ready for publication to the best of your ability.
  • We require a title page including the name of the author, the title of the manuscript, the completed manuscript length, genre, a short author bio, and the intention you have for this manuscript. (I.E. series, stand alone, serial.)
  • A back cover synopsis is required after the title page. This does not need to be a synopsis telling us the whole story, just a catchy paraphrasing you would put on the back cover of the book to grab the reader's attention. 
  • If the manuscript is the first of a serial, please provide the entire layout of the serial (must be complete.) If this is the first in a series, please provide how many books are planned along with a very brief description of the series as a whole.
  • Submissions must be the first three chapters of the manuscript.​
  • Please submit all inquiries to submissions@foreverredpublishing.com
  • Upon submission, you automatically agree that this work is original and no copyright or plagiarism laws have been infringed upon.
