Steampunk Call for Submission from Untreed Reads

. Thursday, July 29, 2010

The following call for submission information comes from editor and author Lisabet Sarai:

Suggest that you read all the information on the Untreed Reads site. What I like about Untreed Reads is that they are not just looking for erotica or romance, however, "Romance and eroticism are fine within the work when it furthers the story, but we prefer plot over a focus just on sex scenes."

Call for Submissions
Steampunk works
Publisher: Untreed Reads
Payment: Royalties are 50% of net earnings

Untreed Reads is an innovative ebook publishing house that is committed to the promotion and visibility of its authors throughout the publishing industry. We are now accepting 2010 submissions for electronic-format (ebooks) full-length fiction and nonfiction titles and short stories.

Note that Untreed Reads is not looking for erotica, romance and poetry. The feeling is that these categories are already well represented by other publishers, and we prefer our fiction focus to be on other genres such as sci-fi, mystery, fantasy, and general fiction. Romance and eroticism are fine within the work when it furthers the story, but we prefer plot over a focus just on sex scenes.

Attention authors! Untreed Reads is actively looking to release short story and full-length steampunk works. We are simply fascinated by the world of steampunk, and would like to help authors who are addicted to the genre as much as we are see their tales reach new audiences.

In particular, we'd like to see genre crossover steampunk titles. Got a great steampunk/zombie novel or short? Great! Maybe a steampunk mystery? We’ll want to take a look at that too.

Please note that we have NO interest in titles using public domain works that are converted into steampunk. Our focus is on original stories only.

Please see our Submission Guidelines for our expectations, and be sure to include the word “steampunk” in the subject line of your email. Preference is for works over 5,000 words, but we will consider anything except microfiction. Series are especially welcome.

Love, light, and laughter!
