NOVEL & NOVELLA SUBMISSIONS OPENING THIS SUMMER/EARLY FALL - DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED Due to some family emergencies, this will be shifted to early fall for sure. If you have any questions please feel free to email or message me. I am focusing on series this time around. Horror or dark fantasy, but it must be a workable series. Not looking for stand alone books at this time. Release date 2023. I have room for 2 series in the budget. What I am looking for. 2-5 book series. First book must already be completed and edited to the best of your ability. General outline of the series and where it is going. Over reaching arc kind of idea. One book/series per author No agent necessary Do not submit something that has already been passed on by Eerie Looking for Readers If you are interested in joining our ‘slush’ reader pile for this or future projects please let me know. We are always looking for readers that we can count on to review incoming submissions. Thank you all so very much. If you need anything let me know, I hope to be reading from you soon!
