Currently OPEN for submissions.
We're the cool Mofo's of sex lit!. We look at erotic material. We love erotic material! We accept novels, novellas, poetry collections, anthology ideas, poetry chapbooks and more!
We don’t want the usual fantasy. We’re tired of the 50 Shades beach novel bullshit. We want you to give us something different. Give us something we can actually see as real. Get experimental with it. Get kinky (we love kinky) with your work. Be bold, be confident, and submit! Confidence in your work goes a long way. There are some things we prefer over others, and I would definitely check out the books section before submitting to us to really make sure you’d be a good fit. Send us something BDSM related, inspiring LGBTQ erotica, or maybe a juicy furry novella! Send us something that isn’t ordinary.
Although we accept a number of things, there are some things we will not accept. These include, but are not limited to: Nonfiction, Christian Fiction and related sub-genres, Paranormal Romance, Teen Fiction/Young Adult Fiction, Inspirational/Motivational, Self-Help, Travel, How-To guides. We will not take on anthology projects from outside editors.
We do publish chapbooks. Short Fiction chapbooks must be at least 15, 000 words to be considered for publication. There is a 25, 000 word max limit on fiction chapbook submissions. Poetry chapbooks must contain at least 15 poems to be considered for publication. Poetry has a 30 Poem maximum to be considered a chapbook.
2. How to Submit!
Prospective authors must submit through our Submittable page. We will not accept any submissions through email. If you send your project through email it will be ignored.
It is not the policy of Red Ferret Press to provide samples of our books to prospective authors. If an author wants to see our product, they can purchase a book at our Storenvy or on Amazon and related online retailers.
Hostile responses to rejections will result in us rejecting you for any and all Weasel Press and Red Ferret Press projects. Hostile withdrawals of submissions will result in us rejecting you for any and all Weasel press and Red Ferret Press projects.
Weasel Press and Red Ferret Press really try to work with all of our authors to produce the best quality book. Although authors have some say in the production of their book, Weasel Press and Red Ferret Press may deny some requests pending on several aspects. Costs being the highest.
When submitting your work, please provide a one paragraph (at least) synopsis of your project, an author bio, and a sample of your manuscript. If it’s a poetry collection or chapbook, send 3-5 poems. Novels, Novellas, etc. send 3-5 chapters. Short fiction collections 3-5 stories.
Please note: Although we do not discourage submitting large projects, the likelihood of getting a trilogy or series accepted is rather low.
If accepted Red Ferret Press will edit your manuscript. Generally this is a couple run-throughs for grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. If there are sentence structure problems or anything of that nature the author will be notified and asked how to proceed. Manuscripts should be finished. We do not have the man power to continuously design unfinished books. Minor editing is alright, but sending us a half-written book is not. Difficulty over this issue will result in a withdrawal of the contract.
Our cover designs are mostly from photo stocks purchased through 123rf.com. Authors can provide their own cover if they wish, however Red Ferret Press Press will discuss with the author options if the submitted cover is not of high quality. Difficulty over this issue will result in a withdrawal of the contract.
Weasel Press and Red Ferret Press do not charge for our services. We do not offer cash advances.
Our books are perfect bound, Trade Paperback.
