Call For Submissions: Young Adult, Romance, Thriller, Erotica, Non-Fiction

Dear Absolutewriters,

We're looking for good quality new authors for genres including Adult, Romance, Thriller, Erotica, and Non-Fiction. We're happy to take a risk on fresh talent, and we usually publish 1 in 4 manuscripts we are submitted. Whilst this is a non-paying call and we don't pay up front, we do pay a 50% split of royalties and most of our authors earn good secondary income.

Please email us directly at info at powerfulfilmsandbooks dot com. We will send you full submission guidelines.

All the best,

Tom Nixon

Your website isn't up yet - it's simply a hosting page.

Can you tell us more about your company? How long have you been publishing books? Who are your editors, and what is their experience in publishing?

1 in 4 manuscripts acceptance is VERY high. That's not necessarily a good thing.

You mentioned Young Adult in your title and Adult in your post, by the way.

How do your authors earn "secondary income" when you publishing company doesn't seem to exist or have any published titles?

Edited to add: I found the site here: http://www.powerfulfilmsandbooks.com/packages-2

Still no evidence of published books except for this one with a kindle rank over 200,000. With the emphasis on paid upgrades and magic bullet books--it looks a tad like a content mill.

Sorry for the delay. I'm mystified you can't see our site, it gets plenty of visitors. As for our books, if you search for the imprints Keyhole Erotica, Vittoriosa Books and Keyhole Romantica you will find we have 57 on Amazon. One of our authors topped the bestseller lists for her Young Adult genre, and we do have several earning hundreds every month. We are new(ish), but we do have a lot of commercial experience as freelancers on Elance.

As for the 1 in 4 ratio, we achieve this because we normally approach authors directly, having vetted their stories or blog postings for quality, so this is not for random submissions.
