Submissions must be in standard manuscript format (see below): Optimus Maximus Publishing accepts unsolicited novel submissions of all genres. The length of the novels we publish varies. A literary agent is not required for a submission. We will consider manuscripts that are currently on submission to another publisher, however please inform us upon submission and be courteous and let us know if you accept a contract with another publisher as soon as possible so that our Acquisition Editors can move on to other projects. It may require up to one month for our editors to review a submission, so please have patience and know that we will contact you once a decision has been made. Please see guidelines below:
* Please submit the first three chapters along with a synopsis, author bio, and a professional query letter in a Word .doc format.
* The subject line of your email should read as follows: – QUERY- Genre/Title/Name/Word Count.
* Please add your manuscript as an attachment to your email in the following format:
