submissions – novel, short stories, poetry, memoirs
Submit your work to dpdotcom publishing. We are currently accepting submissions of poetry, short stories, full length novels or memoirs from new and established authors. Submitting your manuscript to dpdotcom is absolutely free! There are no reading fees. All genres of work are very welcome!
We do not ask for “proposals”, but we do ask that your manuscript is a complete work, proof-read for errors, and spell-checked from start to finish. Nobody wants to read a badly written book, so read and re-read your work carefully before sending it to us! At dpdotcom, we believe it is your responsibility, as author, to make sure your work is up to the highest standard.
Note: If your work does need to be edited in any significant way – in other words, there are more than a few typos – there will be a fee of $125.00 or £100.00 for the editing work dpdotcom has to do.
For more details of costs involved, see HERE.
