Crimson Edge is accepting submissions in the following genres:
- Dystopian Fiction
- Historical Fiction
We are most interested in your completed manuscript between 70,000 and 125,000 words. However, we will also accept novelettes and novellas, if the story is compelling.
Please read this entire section before submitting. Your submission packet should include:
- The first three chapters of your book, prepared in standard manuscript format.
Standard manuscript format means margins of at least 1 inch all the way around; indented paragraphs; double-spaced text; and Times New Roman in 12 pitch. Do not justify the text. Make sure the header of the ms. includes your name and/or the title of the book as well as the page number (on every page).
- A 1-2 page synopsis of the entire book in standard manuscript format. The synopsis should summarize the main plot points and highlight the protagonist’s development.
- In the subject line of the e-mail, include last name, title of work, and word count (e.g. Smith, The Dragon’s Fire, 90,000). Send submissions electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have written a series, send a submission for the first book only. If we like what we see, we’ll ask for the rest.
Thank you for your interest!
