  • Full length Horror Novels
  • Full length Paranormal Novels
  • Novella (20k-30k) Horror stories for eBooks

    Our current response time on manuscripts is 2-3 weeks.

If you have a completed, quality manuscript please read our submission guidelines:

  • E-Mail Submissions ONLY.
  • You do not need an agent.  We prefer to work directly with authors when possible.
  • Attach the first three chapters only of your manuscript to your e-mail.  If we like what we read, we will request the full manuscript from you.
  • Manuscript must be in RTF or Microsoft Word format only.
  • Any length story is acceptable at this time, however if you are looking to get your story in print it needs to be a minimum of 50,000 words.  Manuscripts that are less than that amount will be considered for eBook publication only.  Please specify length in e-mail.
  • Manuscript should be previously unpublished.
  • Manuscript should already have been read by someone other than yourself.
  • Is this your first draft?  Revise it again and have someone read it before submitting it to us.  The quality (typos, sentence structure etc..) of the manuscript does count!
  • Include the following in your e-mail: manuscript attachment, your name, e-mail address, physical address, phone number, manuscript title, word count, genre, a brief bio of yourself and a short (three to five sentences) synopsis of your manuscript.
  • While we do not require it, authors who are Internet savvy are given preference.  We love to see authors who have their own website, blog, Facebook or other similar social media vehicle by which to interact with readers more directly.  If need be, we can assist you with this.
  • If you do not follow our submission requirements -- which are very simple -- we may not respond to you at all.
What we are not looking for:
  • Erotic Fiction of any kind
  • Screen plays
  • Poetry
  • Non-fiction of any type
  • Children's books
