HOW TO SUBMIT NOVELS, STORIES, AND COLLECTIONS
TO MORAN PUBLISHING
I recently announced in a post that Moran Publishing was seeking short fiction for publication. You can read that post HERE. I also announced on Twitter and Facebook that Moran Publishing is accepting submissions for short story collections and full-length novels.
Having received a few novel submissions already, I should outline what I want to see in a submission to Moran Publishing.
I prefer documents to be attached to the e-mails as MICROSOFT WORD files. I want the file to be in Times New Roman font, 12pt - Double Spaced. This makes it easier for me to read. Attach the first three chapters of your work or the first 5k words if the chapters of the novel are short.
In the body of your e-mail - include the following information.
Word Count of both the novel and the sample document attached.
Elevator pitch for the novel. The 30 second version of what you'd tell someone on an elevator! Make this punchy please - don't tell me about your novel, SELL me your novel.
I would advise writers that are submitting to read the works published from Moran Publishing to gauge suitability and how best to frame your submission. At Moran Publishing - I market the novels not only individually, but together and on the same hashtags on social media - fitting in with the novels already published is part of the selection process.
Best of luck to all that submit work to Moran Publishing. If you have any questions - send them and also any submissions to STEPHENJOHNMORAN@GMAIL.COM
Enjoy your Saturday,
Stephen John Moran
