Severed Press is accepting horror novels and novellas for adults and
young adults.

Unsolicited submissions from published and new authors alike will be considered for publication given the manuscript conforms to the relevant genre and meets with our standards for publication.  All fiction submissions need to have a strong plot, be well written with stimulating and logically ordered content and developed characters.  The procedure for submission is as follows:

  • Prepare a synopsis no more than 200 words in length.
  • Include the synopsis in a cover letter introducing yourself.
  • Attach the first three chapters of your manuscript to your email.
  • Email it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Please DO NOT mail your manuscript to us.  We accept no responsibility for the return of your manuscript.

Only a small number of submissions received are accepted for publication.  Every manuscript we receive is afforded a generous amount of time and diligence by our editors. If the title generates interest an editor will request the entire manuscript from you within 21 days. Once the title is finally approved for publication you will receive a legal contract that you will be able to review independently.

Unfortunately due to the large number of submissions we only contact authors in the affirmative.  If you have not been contacted within twenty one days please submit your manuscript to another publisher
