We are looking for stories that hold a reader's attention until the very last sentence. Stories that paint characters so well that we can fall in love with that character and not want the book to end, and yet we will race to the end to see what will happen

Rogue Phoenix Press is seeking submissions of complete manuscripts. See Author Submission page for the types of books we are looking to buy. Please feel free to query us about stories in other genres, because the list of what we would like to see is far too long to include here.We will consider both book-length works (at least 50,000 words) and superlative shorter fiction (at least 5,000 words.)

We will consider previously published titles. When you submit, please tell us where it was published before, and be prepared to show us proof that you have regained your electronic rights.

Please send clean manuscripts. We frown on accidental misspellings, inaccurate word usage, incorrect punctuation, and loose writing.

In the body of the email, include your name (both real and pseudo), a short synopsis of your story (1,000 words or less) and your current email address. If you can Zip your manuscript, please do, to keep our mailbox unclogged.

If we accept your book, you will be asked to format it according to our guidelines and send it to the editor within 30 days.

We will let you know when we receive your manuscript. Our goal is to respond to all submissions within 60 days, so if you don't hear from us by the end of two months, please remind us you're still waiting.
