Publishing Submissions

Manuscript Submission Guidelines

Please note, we are very strict about authors following our submission guidelines. We don’t want to reject anyone, but you have to be able to read, understand, and follow instructions for us to move forward together. Starting with the submission process allows us to determine very quickly who we can work with and who we cannot.

Genres Accepted: We are not a genre specific publisher. We will consider all types of written works submitted correctly. We do have a preference for “dark fiction” but we believe that life is a twist of light and dark, and people need both and to move through light and dark to be whole, so both are considered.

Formatting: 12-14 pt font, Verdana, Tahoma, Century Gothic, Trebuchet, Calibri, or Open Sans, standard black text color. Block paragraphs (no indents). Single spacing after punctuation.

Document Type and title: Documents must be written in word or google doc compatible word processor, saved as Manuscript Title. author initials.docx. Grammar and Spell checks must have been run and corrections listed made. Running the document through this app and making the shown changes will help speed up the process on our end also and help us get your work published quicker and with a lot less back and forth.

Plagiarism Checks: We will run submitted documents through a 3rd party plagiarism checker. To pass, a document must contain less than 7% plagiarized content, and the 7% must be referenced properly. No exceptions.

AI Assisted Submissions: AI is a tool. We do not ask if any other tools have been used to write, edit, or otherwise prepare for submission and we do not publicize what tools we use in our processes to produce books from manuscripts. The tools you use to write are your business.

When you and your manuscript are ready, submit to HeyPublisher using the form below, and get ready for the ride of your life!
