OUR GENERAL SUBMISSIONS PERIOD OPENS OCT 1st 2021

We're looking for Escapism Fiction...

Our goal is to provide readers with the ability to escape the mundane through wildly creative fiction. We're looking for books that act as gateways to other worlds, times, or versions of reality. We prefer strong story telling, engaging openings, and compelling character development as well as imaginative settings, vivid world building, and interesting themes. If your manuscript transports a reader somewhere else, tells an engaging story and then brings them back feeling like they have experienced something unique, then we want to publish your book!​

As for genres, we're looking primarily for... 

Speculative Fiction

Fantasy

Science-Fiction

Romance

LGBT-themed

Adventure

Paranormal/Occult

Comedy

Historical

Portal Fiction

A blend of any two or more of the above genres

Cross-genre, mixed genre, or things that don't fit genre norms

Adult, New Adult, Young Adult, Middle Grade, or Children's (please specify your target market in your query letter) 

As for types of manuscripts, we consider primarily:

Novels (125,000 words maximum)

Novellas (25,000 words minimum)

Graphic Novels (art included)

Children's Picture Books (art included)

Role-playing System Guidebooks (art included)

We don't like to limit ourselves, so if you have something you think would fit with our current list of published works, please send it. We'd rather take a chance outside our comfort zones than miss something great.

That being said, here's a list of things we're NOT interested in:

Non-fiction

Memoirs or autobiographies

Literary fiction

Self-help or inspirational fiction

Hard Sci-Fi or Military Sci-Fi

Horror / Thriller / Suspense / True crime

Christian or other religious fiction

Contemporary fiction / Contemporary romance

Poetry anthologies or short stories

As a small, independent publishing house, we offer... 

We partner with our authors to make the books we produce the best they can be and aim to market them together for maximum exposure. We're proud to be able to offer our books as both paperbacks and e-books. We offer higher royalties than the industry standard (50% of net profits), author copies at wholesale rate, and worldwide distribution. We respond to all queries we receive within six to eight weeks with a personal response, including suggestions on how to improve your manuscript even if it is not the right fit for us, so there is no need to send a follow-up inquiry.

To submit to Mirror World Publishing, please send the following:

A query letter (clearly stating the genre, word count, and target audience of your manuscript)

A one-page synopsis of the plot, including the ending

The first three chapters or an equivalent sample (in the case of novellas and children's picture books), attached as a .doc or .docx file

A sample of the art, if applicable

All submissions should be sent to:  [email protected]
