Pill Hill Press is a small publishing company that is always interested in your works of fiction.

We are a small, independent publisher specializing in horror, suspense, dark fantasy and science fiction. We bought a "haunted house" in 2007 in Western Nebraska and decided to convert part of the old, spooky Victorian into a small press that celebrates speculative fiction.

We are interested in authors new and seasoned, young and old, and anywhere in between.

Here are their guidelines for a novel submission:

Pill Hill Press is OPEN to Novel Submissions
Open 6/1/2010 - 12/31/2010

At this time, Pill Hill Press publishes horror, fantasy, science fiction, mystery and romantic suspense, with the occasional experimental or unclassified novel. Regardless of genre, all stories must have powerful character-driven plots. All novels should be well-written with solid material and a beginning, middle and an end.

Please note, we are only looking for novels at this time. We are not interested in short story collections. Thank you!
Manuscripts should range between 60,000-120,000 words
Use Standard Manuscript Format.
We only accept finished manuscripts; do not query until your novel is completed.
Send in the best version of your work.

Electronic submissions only (send to submissions@pillhillpress.com)

In the subject line of your email, please put SUBMISSION: "Title" by author's name, genre (example - SUBMISSION: "My Fabulous Novel" by Susie Writes-a-lot, Horror).
No simultaneous submissions.

No multiple submissions. Please wait until we have accepted or passed on your novel before sending another.

Response times generally under twelve weeks; do not query for ninety days.

New & established authors welcome.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING WITH YOUR SUBMISSION:

Cover Letter - 1 single-spaced page talking about yourself, your book and your writing history. Make sure you identify yourself with your real name and complete contact information (including your address, phone number, email address). Put cover letter in the body of your email.

Synopsis - 1 single-spaced page describing your novel. Please include your ending (don't leave me hanging. I want to know how the story ends). Put synopsis under your cover letter in the body of your email.

The First THREE Chapters of Your Novel

Send submission to - submissions@pillhillpress.com in a single docx (PREFERRED), doc or rtf file (send all three chapters in one file). Make sure your contact information is on your cover letter AND submission.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Author Compensation:

We ask for first exclusive worldwide print rights for three years, and first exclusive e-rights for five years.

Author's receive 25% of net profits (no royalties are paid on books the author purchases at a discounted rate). Authors receive 5 FREE contributor's copies of their novel, and may purchase copies of their book at 40% off retail price, plus actual shipping/handling rates.

Royalties are paid on a quarterly basis. Payments are sent within 90 days of the end of each calendar quarter (March 31st, June 30th, September 30th and December 31st). Books are not considered sold, and therefore, royalties not to be paid to authors until payment is actually received by Pill Hill Press from our printer/distributors.

Royalty statements are sent quarterly detailing your sales for that 3-month period. Remember, this royalty statement will not match the enclosed royalty check because of the 90 day delay in receiving funds from resellers.

Additional Terms:

Editing, cover art, cover design and promotional costs are covered by Pill Hill Press. We encourage authors to promote themselves and their books. Authors do not pay Pill Hill Press for any part of the process. We use several independent sources for our cover art. Authors are free to submit artwork created by them or for them, but final cover selection is left to the discretion of Pill Hill Press. Cover artwork supplied by the author is the property of the publisher until the publishing contract is terminated. At that time, author-supplied art is returned and not used by Pill Hill Press at any point in the future.

Pill Hill Press will edit your manuscript, but author must approve all changes (the final draft) before it is sent to the printer. We work with our authors to make the best possible product.

All Pill Hill Press book titles are available for ordering through Ingram in both the United States and United Kingdom. Your book will be available from most online retailers, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Blackwells, and others.

As author, you own the rights to your novel. However, during the contract period entered into with Pill Hill Press, you have licensed your book exclusively to us and do not have the right to sell your book to another publisher unless authorized by Pill Hill Press. As part of the publishing contract you grant Pill Hill Press the right to print, distribute, promote and sell your book for a specific length of time.

Pill Hill Press provides your ISBN (Internatinal Standard Book Number) for your book. An ISBN is required by all book sales channels and bookstores to track and order your book. Pill Hill Press covers the cost involved in this process. If, however, you request a withdrawal of your book from our library, you will need a new ISBN if you publish elsewhere.

Once the initial period of your publishing contract ends, you are free to enter into any other agreements with whomever you wish. However, other publishers may ask you to sever your agreement with Pill Hill Press and grant them exclusive rights. This can only be done once you have fulfilled your obligations under the contract with Pill Hill Press. If you have an offer from another publisher, that company may offer a quit claim buy-out to Pill Hill Press to receive the rights to your work. We will consider any such offer and always strive to acheive the maximum benefit for our authors. We spend a considerable amount of time and money getting your book into print, commissioning cover artwork, and getting your book into the sales system and book catalogs. A fair return on our investment is all we seek.
