Urban Fantasy Novel - Silver Empire

Urban Fantasy Novel

Silver Empire is now accepting submissions for Urban Fantasy and Supernatural Thriller novels. Requirements are below.

  • Minimum word count is 50,000 words. 60,000+ is preferable.
  • Maximum word count is 120,000 words but 90,000 or below is preferable.
  • While we will consider one-off novels, series with at least 5 books planned get a strong preference and will get priority. Bonus points if you’ve already written more than one book in the series. But please only send us the first book until/unless we ask for more.
  • Although we will consider books targeted at women and/or with female protagonists, we are primarily focused at the moment on series with male leads aimed at men.
  • “Supernatural thrillers” are perfectly acceptable.
  • While we do plan to expand into the genre in the future, we are NOT accepting submissions for Paranormal Romance at this time. The genres (and reader expectations) are distinct, and for now we want to stay firmly on the UF/ST side. If your book is on the borderline we might consider it, but only if it’s clearly on the UF/ST side of the line.
  • Manuscripts should be in Microsoft Word format (either DOC or DOCX is fine). We’re not overly worried about fonts, formatting, or a lot of “standard manuscript” BS. But make sure it’s legible. If we can’t read it, we won’t bother. Also, make sure the document has your name and contact info in it.
  • It will probably be at least 30 days before you hear back from us, but please give us at least 90 before you ask us for status.
