Submissions

 Our General Submissions are currently CLOSED!!!

Thank you for considering us, but our general submissions are currently closed. If you have been invited to submit by one of us, or one of our authors, then please do so. Otherwise, please check back in the FALL of 2017 when our general submissions will re-open. Until then, feel free to take advantage of the publishing advice we offer here, on our youtube channel and on our blog.

To submit to Mirror World Publishing, please send the following:

  •  A query letter (stating the genre, word count, and target audience of your manuscript)
  •  A one-page synopsis of the plot
  •  The first three chapters


To: submissions@mirrorworldpublishing.com

 

Expect us to take up to six to eight weeks to respond.  We try our best to provide some feedback and we respond to all queries we receive.

We're a small independent press and we are passionate about success. Our goal is to partner with our authors to make the books we produce the best they can be and we aim to market them together for maximum exposure. We're proud to be able to offer full paperback and e-book services, higher royalties than the industry standard, and worldwide distribution. We respond to all queries we receive within six to eight weeks with a personal response.

We're looking for Escapism Fiction:

Our goal is to provide our readers with the ability to escape the mundane through wildly creative fiction. We're looking for books that act as gateways to other worlds, other times, or other concepts of reality. We prefer strong story telling and strong character development as well as imaginative settings and interesting themes. If your manuscript transports a reader somewhere else, tells an engaging story, and then brings them back feeling like they learned or experienced something unique, then we want to publish your book!

 

As for genres, we consider primarily:

  •  Speculative Fiction
  •  Fantasy
  •  Science-Fiction
  •  Romance
  •  Adventure
  •  Paranormal
  •  Comedy
  •  Historical
  •  A blend of any two or more of the above genres
  •  Cross-genre, mixed genre, or things that don't fit genre norms
  •  Outside the box thinking
  •  Adult, New Adult, Young Adult, Middle Grade, or Children's

 

As for types of manuscripts, we consider primarily:

  •  Novels (130,000 words maximum)
  •  Novellas (25,000 words minimum)
  •  Collections of poetry or short stories with a cohesive theme or a continuous story arc
  •  Graphic Novels (art included)
  •  Children's books (art included)
  •  Colouring books (art included)

 

We don't like to limit ourselves, so if you have something you think would fit with our current list of published works, please send it. We'd rather take a chance outside our comfort zones than miss something great.


That being said, here's a list of things we're NOT interested in:

  • Non-fiction
  • Memoirs or autobiographies
  • Literary fiction
  • Self-help or inspirational fiction
  • Hard Sci-Fi or Military Sci-Fi*
  • Horror*
  • Christian or other religious fiction
  • Contemporary fiction or contemporary romance
  • Anthologies*

*For short stories, novellas and novels in the fringe, horror and hard sci-fi genres, please consider our imprint, Adventure Worlds Press.
