Do you have a completed novel, novella or collection and are looking for a publisher?
Sinister Smile Press is now accepting submissions for publication of individual author's works.
Submission Guidelines
Please read carefully. Submissions that don't meet the guidelines will be automatically rejected.
  • We are looking for dark fiction, which encompasses many genres. If it's fiction and it's dark, we'd like to see it

  • We are not looking for non-fiction, romance, poetry, children's books, or anything that isn't dark

  • Manuscript must not have been published before

  • Word count is negotiable

  • Submissions must be complete. We do not accept partially finished manuscripts or works that are only in the conception stage

  • Submit full manuscript with title, submitter's name, pen name (if different), word count and author email address at the top

  • Submissions must be 12 pt. Times New Roman font, with special first-line indentation of 0.5"

  • Submissions must be in .Docx or .Doc format with 1" margins all around

  • Submissions should be clean and edited to the best of author's ability

Allow up to sixty days for a response.

Authors that are chosen for publication will be offered a publishing contract with the terms clearly spelled out.
