IMPORTANT NOTICE – Due to an overwhelmingly full project schedule, ALL SUBMISSIONS of unsolicited novels and novellas are now CLOSED. We open just a few months every year and once we fill our calendar we have to close. Watch our website for an announcement when we'll reopen for all submissions.
We only want to see short story submissions for our ebook anthology line as we open new anthologies. Check our Open Anthologies page for updates.
Make the right choice when you submit your manuscript to a publisher - please read our article PUBLISHING REALITY CHECK - we "tell it like it is" about the Small Press Experience!
- Follow the guidelines if you want us to read your work!
- We accept ON LINE SUBMISSIONS ONLY
- There is only one email box for Submissions: Submissions@lldreamspell.com
- Send a sample, not an entire manuscript - follow the Format Guide
- Never send your submission in the body of an email, it will be deleted and not seen!
- We do accept simultaneous submissions - please tell us when you submit
- Submissions are reviewed in the order they are received - response time varies
- We are not accepting any Poetry or Memoirs
- We are not accepting single author short story collections at this time
- But we ARE accepting new Novella length manuscripts!
- Short story submissions should be from around 3000 to 9000 words in length
- Non-Fiction topics we want to see include Handbook length work (around 100 pages) and full length manuscripts on Paranormal topics, Metaphysical topics, and more
- We do not want writing done in the "present tense"
- You are responsible for obtaining your own Copyright
- We pay author advances from $100 to $250 for books and from $10 to $25 for short stories
- After advances are earned Royalties are paid quarterly - 15% of the net on print books and 50% on EBooks
- We publish many of our books in both Trade Paperback 5.5"x8.5" and multi format ebooks
- PLEASE NOTE: we now also publish some titles as ebooks only - depending on the print book sales potential. In the current publishing world ebook sales are increasing every month while print book sales are decreasing. We will make the determination, and offer to publish in paperback or just in multi ebook formats based on an author's marketing plan and other factors. Ebook only titles receive a token advance and 50% of the net in royalties.
