Zeno Agency open for novel submissions
« on: July 28, 2015, 10:39:57 AM »
Looks like Zeno agency is currently open for submissions if any of you have any novels in the horror, crime & thriller, epic fantasy and story driven space opera genres:


Submission Guidelines

We are currently open for submissions.
Please ensure that you read this message in its entirety before contacting us. We are unable to consider any submissions that do not follow these guidelines.
Currently we are ONLY looking for completed works of fiction over 75,000 words in the categories: horror, crime & thriller, epic fantasy and story driven space opera. We will also consider high-concept speculative fiction which is more likely to be shelved as mainstream fiction than in the Science Fiction & Fantasy section.
If your novel fits this brief, please email us the first three chapters (or an equivalent segment of around 50 double-spaced pages), a synopsis, and a covering letter. If you’ve already sent your novel to Zeno and we did not take it further, please do not send it in again.
The chapters should be sent in .doc or .rtf format, in a legible font (no smaller than 12pt), double spaced, and with the pages numbered. Please ensure your name, email address, and a contact number are on the title page.
The synopsis should not be proposed cover copy, but rather a simple explanation of the story, from chapter one to the end. This shouldn’t run over two pages.
The covering letter should include an ‘elevator pitch’ and a few lines about yourself and your writing career to date. Be sure to mention if you have sent another novel to Zeno before.
Zeno does not accept submissions by post. Please be sure to put ‘SUBMISSION [title of novel] by [name]’ in the subject line, then email it to info [at] zenoagency [dot] com
We will get back to you, but do ask for your patience. Our turnaround time is anything up to eight weeks, longer if we’re busy with things like the London Book Fair or the World Fantasy Convention. If we wish to see a full manuscript, we’ll ask for it. If we decide that your submission is not for us, we’ll say so – but do please note that we’re not obliged to offer you any explanation. It’s simply not possible for us to critique or offer editorial advice on the submissions we receive.
