Publishing Guidelines

We of course welcome new, budding, established and professional authors and artists who would like to have their works published through our own house, Scribes Unlimited Press.

We’re looking for quite a number of different genres that include:

  • Adventure
  • Drama
  • Sci-Fi/Fantasy
  • Teen Fiction
  • Horror
  • Mystery
  • Biography
  • Humor
  • Self-Help
  • Food and Nature
  • Cozies (books less than 50k words)

If you think your book is good, however, and you’re having trouble getting it noticed, we would like to see what you have. We offer this stipulation also: We realize we’re a stepping stone. If you do manage to find a bigger publisher, we’ll cheerfully release your title with no hard feelings – and wish you much success.

What We Will Not Accept:

  • Excessive adult content. A little sex here and there is great, but straight-up erotica with no discernible plot doesn’t really interest us. We prefer porn with plot.
  • Anything promoting or glorifying hate, violence, persecution, bullying,, etc. If you hate something or someone, fine. We don’t have to read about how intolerant you are, thank you.
  • Anything to do with children except in a family or teen setting. We do not, and should not, have to read about sexual incidents involving children. While it is true that some books need to include such content for their stories, it’s just not what we want. Consider doing some edits or find someone else.

We ask authors to please use their best judgement. Take a look at the type of books we publish and promote, and see for yourself if we’re a good fit.

If you think you’d like us to publish your works, send us an email with “Submission Inquiry” as the subject heading. (It should do that automatically for you.)

Paid Book Promotions

On the other hand, if you already have a published work and you’d like to get some extra limelight on it, we’re very happy and excited to help you. Our promotions range from creating your very own author page and purchase links, to writing blogs, press releases, social media posts and more.

if something like this appeals to you, we offer a variety of promotional packages from the bare details to full-blown campaigns. Send us an email today with “Promotions Inquiry” in the subject heading. (this should be automatic by clicking the mail link)
