Samhain Publishing is currently accepting submissions in all genres of fiction and non-fiction.
We encourage you to let your muse have its way and to create tales that don't always adhere to current trends. One never knows what the next "big thing" will be, or when it will start, so write what's in your soul. These are the books that, whether the story is based on "formula" or is an "original", when written from the heart will earn you a life-time readership.
The preferred word count is 60,000 or longer, but we are quite happy to publish shorter works with word counts of no less than 12,000.
Any book that glorifies depraved or illegal acts will not be considered. No pedophilia, bestiality, racial intolerance, rape as titillation, necrophilia - no ick factors, please!
Royalty and Contracts
Samhain is a royalty paying ebook company that offers 40% of the cover price (as set by Samhain Publishing, Ltd) for a single-author ebook.
The author is not required to pay any fees for editing or for publishing in either digital or print. We are NOT a vanity publisher.
Our contract requests full rights to the work, including both digital and print, is fully negotiable and available for review upon acceptance of your story.
How to Submit
All submissions must be sent by email as we are primarily an epublisher, and all our work is done through the internet.
Please send a query letter telling us a bit about you along with a 2 to 5 page synopsis and sample chapters - attached, not within the body of the email as it makes reading difficult! You may, at your discretion, send the whole manuscript as it will be requested if it passes the first review. Plus, as a reader, nothing drives me insane like having to wait to finish a book!
