Call for Submissions: Zombie Romance (Night Wolf Publications

Post date: 03 May 2011
Deadline: 30 August 2011

Ain’t no lovin’ like undead lovin’—it applies to more than vampires.

Night Wolf Publications seeks the latest in paranormal romance: zombie romance. Whether your polished manuscript is light, dark, humorous, serious, gory & greasy, or carefully exfoliated, the staff at Night Wolf Publications wants to read it before Aug. 30, 2011.

Follow the Directions!

Here’s how to submit a zombie-specific, paranormal romance to Night Wolf Publications.

1. Prepare a well-crafted, self-edited, clean manuscript of 50,000 to 100,000 words in the paranormal romance genre that centers on zombie romance. Also prepare a well-crafted, self-edited two- to three-page synopsis of your story--not a chapter-by-chapter summary--an actual synopsis, which we expect to be a professional example of your writing skill.

2. Send a query letter AND the two- to three-page synopsis of your completed story to nightwolfpublications@gmail.com anytime between now and Aug. 30, 2011. (there’s a great summary of how to write a romance synopsis at http://brendacoulter.com/BrendaCoulterTips.htm). Include "NWP Zombie Romance" in the subject line.

3. An editor for NWP will contact you within a month of receiving your query, requesting the full MS if he or she is interested in your story. As you will find in the publishing industry, repetitive queries will encourage us to dump your query and send you a polite rejection. At the time of an acceptance, you will be expected to follow the simple instructions to send the full MS to NWP.

4. Authors are never expected to pay for their submissions at NWP. There are no submission fees, no reading fees, no editing fees, no processing fees, no printing fees, etc. Authors are not required to purchase copies of their books upon printing. Contracts will be offered when full MS are selected.
