Skyrocket Press is looking for how-to and self-help manuscripts between 35,000 - 60,000 words. Any topic will be considered, though we are particularly interested in books about writing and publishing, success, happiness, parenting, politics, religion, humor, and organization. We cannot offer advances at this time but do pay royalties.

For full-length fiction submissions, please see our CONTEST page. Our annual contest is open to submissions from July - October. We are not accepting submissions for picture books, middle grade, memoir, poetry, cookbooks, romance, or erotica. 

We are also accepting horror/sci-fi/fantasy short stories between 5,000 - 10,000 words for a future anthology. We pay $10 for accepted stories.

To submit your manuscript, send us an email with the header: QUERY. In the body of your email, include a brief proposal letter, the first two chapters of your book, and a table of contents. The proposal should tell us about your book in detail, as well as introduce you as the author. If you have any expertise in the area in which you are writing or have published before, please let us know.

If submitting a short story, include a query letter and the complete story in the body of your email.

If your book/story is accepted for publication, it will be made available as an e-book. If sales reach 500+, we will consider offering a print edition.
