    Uprising Media Group - Call For Submissions

    Uprising Media Group is currently accepting queries for novel length fiction.

    We're a startup publisher founded by veteran software engineers, television producers and online marketing experts focused on developing new fiction and select non-fiction, primarily for digital distribution.

    Our first set of titles will be released in Summer of 2010. Our titles will be released on the Kindle, Sony Reader, B&N Nook along with special Rich Mobile Editions for the iPhone and Android that feature original video content bundled with text. We will also release all titles on trade paperback for traditional distribution. Our focus is on electronic and viral marketing as a cost effective tool to develop a fan base for new writers.

    Unlike traditional publishers, we also give our authors a much higher percentage of gross sales.

    We are interested in books stuck in the blind spots of traditional publishing: cross-genre novels, etc. We're especially interested in series that cater to a technically savvy readership such as fantasy and science fiction. We will consider most fiction genres other than horror or erotica and within other genres we have a general aversion to sexually explicit material. We'll consider non-fiction memoir and biography, especially if it's funny. We also have a special place in our heart for political fiction. We're looking for strong literary characteristics in all submissions regardless of genre -- we're not looking for pulp genre novels.

    We are not necessarily interested in series exclusively, but we do have a preference for prolific authors. Developing a new author is expensive, time consuming and can often take years to yield results. We prefer authors who can reliably produce new work every 12 to 18 months. If you have a drawer full of completed manuscripts, please let us know in your initial query.

    You can learn more about us and review our submission guidelines by visiting our web site at http://www.uprisingmediagroup.com.
