The New Rivers Press Electronic Book Series Contest is temporarily on hiatus.
Our electronic book series publishing slate is full for the foreseeable future, so we have elected to suspend the calls for submissions until we have published the titles we have already accepted. Thank you for your interest.
The Electronic Book Series is a collection of e-book-only publications of full-length speculative fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction manuscripts with strong literary merit. We read Action-adventure, Comic Misadventure, Crime, Detective, Fantasy, Horror, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, Slipstream, Spy, Thriller/Suspense, Westerns, Young Adult, New Adult, Inspirational, and any sub-genre within and across these categories.
There is a $20 reading fee. Each author selected for publication will receive a $500 honorarium and a standard electronic book contract. All books will be distributed internationally through Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing Market.
Submissions are accepted yearly, July 1 – October 1 through Submittable.
The Electronic Book Series is operated by Associate Editor Daniel A. Shudlick, a writer, editor, and publisher living in Fargo, ND. Mr. Shudlick received his Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing for fiction as well as his Certificate in Publishing from Minnesota State University Moorhead, where he was managing editor for the literary journal Red Weather.
