We are a coalition of editors and publishing professionals working together to make our authors successful, and our goal is to grow slowly but steadily by publishing books we love.
We support our authors with quality editing and commercial covers, and partner with them to market their books. We work to bridge the gap between traditional and self-publishing by publishing our authors in both digital and print simultaneously while offering higher royalties than the Big 5. We truly believe in a publisher / author partnership. Our authors’ successes are our successes.
New Texas seeks to feature the voices of those questing, questioning, and envisioning the possibilities of and coming from Texas in fiction, poetry, critical and creative non-fiction, photography and multi-media.
Written submissions should generally range from 1000 to 5000 words and be double-spaced. Use MLA style.
The Wax Paper is a broadsheet publication open to all forms of written word, imagery and collected conversation. The first priority of the Wax Paper is to expand our understanding of the people we share the world with, and in doing so, expand our understanding of ourselves. Pieces will be selected on their ability to illuminate the humanity and significance of the subjects that inhabit the work. The Wax Paper is inspired by the life of Louis “Studs” Terkel.
Please read our mission statement and send work that corresponds with our mission
Our publication centers around thrillers (whether it be action thrillers, horror thrillers, crime thrillers, etc). As long as the work somehow connects to the thriller genre, authors are more than welcome to submit it. We aim to publish a mix of short stories, flash fiction, poetry, book reviews, and artwork in each issue.
Here are a few tips for submissions:
- Please include a short author bio no longer than 75 words
- You may include your story as a Microsoft Word attachment
- One note regarding submissions is that fully edited work has a much higher chance of acceptance
Submissions not conforming to our guidelines will be deleted without a response. Please read our submissions page.
