Publisher’s Open Submission
As I’m sure most of the science fiction and fantasy writers out there already know, Harper Voyager, the science fiction and fantasy imprint of Harper Collins, is currently having an open submission window that runs through Sunday, 14 October.
The following is from their press release:
“In this time of perpetual evolution and advancement in digital publishing Harper Voyager is delighted to announce a new venture that will offer talented aspiring writers the chance to join the global science fiction and fantasy imprint.
For the first time in over a decade, Harper Voyager will open its doors to unsolicited submissions in order to seek new authors with fresh voices, strong storytelling abilities, original ideas and compelling storylines.
Voyager will be seeking all kinds of adult and young adult speculative fiction for digital publication, but particularly novels written in the epic fantasy, science fiction, urban fantasy, horror, dystopia and supernatural genres. Submission guidelines and key information can be found at www.harpervoyagersubmissions.com.”
Most of the subgenres they are looking for are not those I enjoy reading, so they are not what I write. The subgenres of epic fantasy and general science fiction would both apply to my books, though, so I’ve submitted my four completed novels. If you’re curious, you can find more about them on the “Novels” tab of my website.
Note that this open period is for eBook publication only, although there is a possibility that the books they accept may be published in paper at some future time. They are also willing to consider previously published works provided that the author is not under contract with another publisher.
