DEEP READ PRESS is currently open to submissions.
We will consider submissions for works of 40,000 to 90,000 words in English or in Spanish.
We will consider several genres, but we are most interested in nonfiction, local history, and historical fiction. We are NOT interested in poetry, political commentary, textbooks, quiz books, coffee table books, picture books, comic books, sports books, low-content books, erotica, or pornography.
We offer small advances and we pay standard royalties. We never purchase works outright.
We will accept submissions from authors with and without agents.
Our contract covers the right to publish the work in all formats, worldwide, in all languages. Our contract covers a specified period and the author retains the copyright.
Please do not submit works that have been previously published elsewhere, in any venue. This includes all forms of digital self-publishing.
Please make only one submission to us at a time.
Simultaneous submissions are okay. However, if you sign a contract with another publisher, please withdraw your submission to us immediately.
Please email us a brief synopsis and the first three chapters of your manuscript. Do not send a complete manuscript unless we ask to see it.
Due to the number of submissions we receive, it may take several weeks for us to make a decision as to whether we will ask to see your complete manuscript.
Please email all materials together at one time. Make sure your submission is in Microsoft Word format, is doubled-spaced, and is emailed as an attachment. We prefer Times New Roman or Georgia fonts for submissions.
Email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Failure to follow the above guidelines will result in your manuscript being rejected.
