Full-length Novel Submissions
Call for Full-length Novels
If you have a novel or other extended narrative that you think is suitable for Heresy Press, please submit a proposal first by following the instructions below. Make sure to include some reasons why you think this manuscript might not make it past the gatekeepers of conventional publishing and why you think it is a good fit for Heresy Press. If you have received explicit rejections, indicate the grounds on which your work was criticized.
Submissions: Full-length novel submissions are accepted on a rolling basis.
TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF ACTIVE ACCEPTANCE
Due to the overwhelming response from authors across America and beyond, at this point Heresy Press temporarily suspends active acceptance of full-length novel proposals. This is necessary to be able to work through the large number of pending submissions and to prepare the first accepted manuscripts for publication. While active acceptance is currently suspended, you can still submit your proposal but will only receive an automated response. We look forward to giving your work the serious consideration that it deserves, but it may be up to six months before we tackle the next batch of submissions. When we do so, we will proceed by the date of submission, i.e. read from the oldest to the newest submissions. We value your interest in our mission and look forward to delving into your work as soon as possible.
