Novel Queries

Starting in 2017 Pulp Literature Press will begin publishing novels in addition to our quarterly magazine.  We are open to manuscript queries as of December 15th 2016.  If you have a completed, polished manuscript for a novel, please read the following query guidelines carefully.


We accept most genres including but not limited to mystery, science fiction & fantasy, thriller, horror, contemporary, and literary fiction.

We do not accept children’s books, erotica, memoir, or non-fiction.


We only accept email queries.

  1. In the subject line of your email please enter QUERY: [the name of your novel].
  2. In the body of the email include
    your name
    contact information
    the title, genre, and word count of your manuscript
    a short bio
    a short synopsis (under 500 words)
  3. Paste the first 7500 words of your manuscript in the body of the email.
  4. Send to submissions(at)

Do not send attachments!   Attachments will be deleted unopened.  If we are interested in your novel we will request a word document.

We read manuscripts in January and July, but it may take a month or so after we have read them to reject or request further material.  If you haven’t heard back from us by the vernal or autumnal equinoxes, feel free to shoot us an email.

We look forward to reading your work!
