New Dawning Bookfair welcomes submissions from published and non-published authors. If you are an non-published author, we are very interested in finding undiscovered talent. Please start the process by filling out the form below. Tell us a little about yourself and give us a brief description of your book. If interested, we will send a submission package including an overview of the company and request the manuscript.

We are now accepting submissions for our Twisted Fairy Tale series. New Dawning Bookfair is seeking clever, imaginative versions of all fairy tales. Pen your favorite tale as an erotic, romantic or young adult story in 6000 to 25000 words for submission by April 20th.

When your manuscript is fully polished and ready to go, please send a short query letter and your submission to newdawning@ymail.com. Please allow up to four weeks for a reply.
