Here are the non-negotiable basics:
At this time, World Weaver Press seeks standalone titles only, between 20,000 words and 100,000 words. Standalone means the story is complete in one volume. We are not acquiring new series (or books with "series potential") at this time. World Weaver Press publishes in both digital (ebook) and paperback (print on demand) formats. Unagented submissions welcome.
Length: Novels, Novellas, Single-Author Story Collections
Audience: Adult, Young Adult, New Adult
Genres: Speculative Fiction, including, but not limited to: Epic Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Fairy Tale, Hard Science Fiction, Soft Science Fiction, Space Opera, Solarpunk, Steampunk, Paranormal Romance, Fantasy Romance, Science Fiction Romance, Paranormal Mystery
Please note we are unlikely to consider horror, grimdark, or dystopia.
We encourage writers of all genders, orientations, ethnicities, and nationalities to submit to us, and we welcome manuscripts featuring people of color, disabled people, and members of the LGBT+ community doing kickass things in fantasy and science fiction milieus.
