Open Submissions – Science Fiction Novel
Silver Empire is accepting submissions for a Science Fiction novel. Submissions will remain open through August 1, 2017. We’re looking for one novel from a new-to-Silver-Empire author to publish, hopefully by the end of this year. We’ll be announcing the chosen novel by September.
Submission guidelines are as follows:
- The work should be 60,000-150,000 words (our current publication process makes it prohibitive to publish longer works than this).
- It should be either hard science fiction, military science fiction or pulpy space opera.
- It should be a previously unpublished work.
- Submissions should be in a format readable by Microsoft Word, and they should open in a way that’s actually readable. Beyond that, I don’t care. I’m not your high school English teacher and it doesn’t matter to me which font you use. We’ll change it anyway if we publish it, and I can change it in two seconds if I can’t read it. But don’t do anything silly.
- You must include contact information.
- Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Existing Silver Empire authors with other novels to publish should talk to us separately.
