Submissions

We welcome novel submissions in popular fiction genres: horror, mystery, thriller, science fiction, fantasy, urban fiction. Stories that are not easily placed into a category would fit right at home here. Sorry, no erotica.

At this time we do not publish nonfiction. Check back as this may change in the future.

Our submission process is unique. We use a blind submission process based on each genre and the writing to give every story a chance to be published by NPG. Please follow our precise instructions or your submission will not be accepted.

Until our submission portal is operational, please submit by the process below.

Please send submissions to submissions@npgbooks.com

Standard manuscript formatting:

  • 1 inch margins all around, Calibri 12pt font, and  each paragraph indented.
  • No name on manuscript. Story name and chapter title/number in the headers
  • Send name, bio, and contact information in a separate email on the same thread
  • No pictures, book covers, or the like.
  • Again no erotica.

We will notify you once the submission process is complete. We will not be able to remark on submissions that were not accepted.

Submission are turned down for many reasons, so keep submitting. Please understand that we are a small publisher and that submissions may take up to 8 weeks to clear our submission process.

Good luck!
