SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

We are currently accepting submissions for short stories, novellas, and full-length novels for all of our current imprints. Be sure to check out each imprint page for more information on their submission guidelines.

If you’d like to submit a manuscript for consideration to any of our current imprints, please submit a query letter and a copy of your finished manuscript to: submissions@ldbpress.com. In the subject line, please list the following: (Imprint Name) Manuscript Submission – (Title Of Your Work).

In your query letter, be sure to list the book’s title, final word count, and genre, as well as a short summary of your story. We also request a short bio, your target audience, and mention of any previous publication history.

We accept the following document formats for submitted manuscripts: .DOC, .DOCX, .RTF, and .TXT.

Submitted original and previously unpublished material should belong solely to you (the Author). We do accept previously self-published works, and do ask that you make that fact known to us before submission.

Please allow 4 – 8 weeks for a response from us in regards to your submission. If you haven’t received a response from us by that time frame, please feel free to send in an additional query to the email address provided above.
