Eraserhead Press Announces Open Call For Submissions

For the first time in a decade, Eraserhead Press is opening to unsolicited submissions to our main line! The 2016 reading period runs from June 15-July 15th.

From the submissions page:

Eraserhead Press is seeking novellas and novels of 20,000 to 100,000 words in length that fit into the Bizarro Fiction category. We want exciting, well-crafted weird stories with compelling plots, eccentric characters and never-before-seen concepts. The best way to understand what we are looking for is to familiarize yourself with our catalog. We’re most drawn to darkly absurd tales that are fun and addictive to read, yet still contain a strong emotional core. If you feel you’ve written something completely unique that stands apart from everything else being published today, then we want to see it.

Email your submission to Include with your manuscript an author bio, a 3-5 sentence pitch of your book, and a one-page synopsis. Your manuscript should be well edited and free of grammatical errors. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in automatic rejection. Multiple submissions okay. No simultaneous submissions.  We are not accepting short story collections, poetry or non-fiction at this time.

Author royalty 50% of profit.
Eraserhead Press is interested in English language ebook and paperback rights. All other rights (e.g. audiobook, film, hardcover) are retained by the author.
