Seeking Gay/ Lesbian Fiction Manuscripts: Night Heron Press

Post date: 25 June 2011
Night Heron Press is a royalty-paying publisher. We provide our authors with cover art, ISBN numbers, advanced review copies, editorial services, as well as marketing and promotion.

We are currently accepting submissions from both unpublished and established writers.

We accept fiction in all traditional genres of literature, including fantasy, science fiction, literary fiction, romance, and erotica. We are open to non-traditional genres, so long as we feel the stories are well-crafted and engaging.

We encourage the submission of gay and lesbian literature, as well as literature featuring characters from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

We currently accept work in the following categories:
  • Short Story (2,500 – 20,000 words)
  • Novella (20,000-50,000 words)
  • Novel (50,000-150,000 words)
For novella and novel-length fiction , please query first with a 1-2 page letter. Be sure to include a short synopsis of your book, its word count, and any relevant publishing credits you may have. You may include the first twenty pages within the body of the e-mail. Excellent advice on writing query letters can be found here: Writing Query Letters

Short stories may be sent as an attachment, in .RTF format. Please use 1.5 spacing, and 12 PT Times New Roman font. Include a cover letter with a short synopsis, your bio, and any previous publishing credits. If you are submitting for consideration in an anthology, please indicate which.

Submissions may be sent to submissions@nightheronpress.com

We give careful consideration to every submission we receive, and this is a time-consuming process. Please allow at least 4 weeks before inquiries regarding the status of your query or manuscript.
