Full Length Submissions for 2018


Submission Call Duration: 
            12:05am (0:00) November 1, 2017 Eastern Daylight Time 
            to 11:55pm (23:55) December 31, 2017 Eastern Standard Time
             Any submissions before or after this will be deleted with no guaranteed notice.  

Submissions are CLOSED!

Submission Goal:
            We want authors who are willing to work to get their craft into the hands of people.  This means pounding the pavement, both proverbially and literally.  There is a lot more work that goes into the production of a full length book (especially a novel), so the quality of the project must be top notch and the work behind it has to be just as quality.

Email Address:

Email Subject: 
            "Full Length Book Inquiry - Pen Name" 

Email Body:
            Tell us your experience with promotion. Answer any of the following example questions, make up your own questions to answer.  We want to know that you are passionate about promotion. JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE AN INTROVERT WRITER DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN'T SELL BOOKS!
            Examples: Do you organize shows? Do you feature regularly at other people's shows? Do you go to regular open mics? How often do you talk to people in passing about your work? What is your social media presence? How active are you in social media? Do you have an agent? How often do you travel for promotion?  How likely are you to use the 10 free author copies you get upon publication to reinvest in the purchase of additional books? Do you keep spreadsheets? How much do you promote other authors?
