As a publisher of genre fiction, we are looking for novels that blend genres and styles to deliver stories as surprising and shocking as they are relevant. 

WHAT WE WANT -- Novels and short stories heavily grounded in science fiction, fantasy, horror, mystery, or thriller, or some blend of genres. Novels and short stories that speak to pulp and/or literary conventions. Well-written stories, strong characters, interesting voices. 

WHAT WE DON'T WANT -- Novels or short stories that promote hate speech, first drafts, stories and novels submitted outside our submissions window or fan fiction. (Any submissions submitted outside our window will be deleted unread). 


PODCAST SHORT -- Submissions open March 1st, 2024 - March 10th, 2024. We will be looking for two (2) scripts no more than 30 minutes long each. Chosen scripts will be published in our annual anthology (Tales of Sley House 2024) and will be released on our podcast, Sley House Presents, as full cast performances. Authors whose scripts are chosen will be paid $150 and a percentage of royalties from future audiobook sales. They will also receive a free copy of the anthology and a free digital copy of the audiobook once produced. No submissions will be read outside of the submission window. 

SHORT STORY ANTHOLOGIES -- SUBMISSIONS open February 1st, 2024 - February 15th, 2024As with our previous anthologies, there is no theme. Just send us your best short genre fiction up to 6000 words. In the subject line of your email, please write, "SUBMISSION - Story Title/Genre/word count" In the body of the email, tell us a little about your story and a little about yourself, and attach the story as a word file or pdf. We will pay $25 via PayPal per acceptance, and contributors will also receive a print copy of TALES OF SLEY HOUSE 2024 when it releases around Halloween. No submissions will be read outside of the submission window.
