|Welcome To The Submission Page!
Submissions are closed until Fall 2017.
We are currently seeking submissions. We are interested in
fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and tarot & oracle decks.
Below is what we want, how we want it, and what we don't
want. (Genres, submission guidelines, and what not to send.)
Further down is information on what to expect from us (response
time, payment, contract info, etc.).
Fiction/Poetry Genres ~
Swords & Sorcery
Non-Fiction Genres ~
Divination & Tarot
Ghosts & Hauntings
Folklore & Legends
What We Want ~
Fiction ~ We like strong story lines and characters who become
friends, enemies, or lovers to our readers. Vampire stories, with a
romantic element, are welcome. We tend to shy away from
zombies, aliens, and gore for the sake of gore. We want a balance
between action and emotion. Publishing books in all our
mentioned genres is important to us so explore your mind and send
us your best work.
Poetry ~ We accept full manuscripts of poetry which is quite
unheard of in the publishing industry. The type of poetry we
prefer is long, rhyming narratives which falls under the
above-described genres. We like poetry with a deep story to tell or
lesson to teach. Most poetry of this nature has "no place" in the
mainstream world. Well, it has a "place" with us.
Non-Fiction ~ Divination refers to any type (palmistry, runes,
etc.). Submissions on any type of magick are welcome. We
encourage Christian Magick manuscripts as well. We discourage
submissions on UFO's, aliens, bigfoot, hell hounds, and other
"mainstream" legends but rather off-the-wall or forgotten legends
and folklore. Manuscripts on spirituality should be uplifting and
positive - not preachy, condescending, or negative. Facts, only,
when dealing with historical content. Magical animals refers to
legendary creatures such as dragons and mermaids and mystical
animals such as cats and wolves.
Tarot & Oracles Decks ~ We're looking for intricate to whimsical
decks with clear images. Advanced decks are welcome, of
course, and accompanying companion books are encouraged but not
necessary for us to publish your deck. However, a booklet is
required on decks that do not have a companion book and must be
written by the artist or on the artist's behalf. There is no
additional payment for the booklet. Please be very familiar with
tarot, its purpose, and its history before submitting to us.
What We Don't Want ~
We don't accept mindless, shallow slash horror. SOME blood and
gore is expected but little to none and certainly not throughout the
entire story. Only quality work will be considered.
No intense erotica or pornographic material, including artwork.
(Tastefully romantic, please.)
No child or animal cruelty.
Nothing condemning ANY religion, sexual orientation, race or
ethnic group unless it's to explain a back story, reason for an
action or reaction, or to show the dark side of an evil character.
However, it shouldn't be the main focus of the storyline.
How To Submit ~
Novelettes (7,500 to 17,500 words)
Novellas (17,500 to 40,000 words)
Novels (40,000 to 120,000 words)
Poetry - Between 25 to 100 Full-Length Poems
Non-Fiction Manuscripts (50,000 to 150,000 words)
Electronic submissions only!
In the body of an email, please submit a cover letter that includes
A Short Biography
Your Marketing Plan

What To Expect ~
Unpublished authors and artists are welcomed along side those
previously published. Although many publishers shun
inexperienced writers, we certainly don't! Just make sure your
work is edited, polished, and intriguing! Our goal is to introduce
hidden talent to hungry readers! There's nothing "normal", "usual",
or "mainstream" about us, and we like it that way.
