We want to see your book.

Query us with a cover letter that includes your bio and a short description of your novel, or email us your complete manuscript in Word, RTF or PDF formats.

We have a soft spot for thrillers and mysteries, but publish other genre fiction, too, including science fiction, horror, romance, urban drama, suspense, cross-genres, and historical. Literary fiction is generally a tough sell for us. We don't publish poetry or erotica.

Before submitting a complete manuscript we recommend having your manuscript professionally proofread and edited. You get one shot to sell to us, so make your best.

Claren Books pays authors 50 percent of our net receipts. We offer an advance of $1,000.
