Fat Dog Books is an independent online publisher founded on the premise that if our experience with reading a manuscript is satisfying and engages our intellect and imagination, then it might just do the same for other readers. We grew from a long partnership with another reputable, online publisher, Martin Sisters Publishing, and found the experience of working with authors so enjoyable that we established our own publishing company. Combined, the staff at Fat Dog Books has over 40 years of experience in publishing, editing, writing, and design.
Please visit our website at fatdogbooks.com. Review "Working with Authors" and the submission guidelines. All submissions are through the website forms. All submissions should target an audience 13 or older.
Waxing & Waning is a literary journal that seeks what’s on the fringe. Whatever is deep and true. The moon represents this idea: what is dark, what is brooding, what is wild. We want to feed the beast in you, the one buried beneath layers of manners and anxiety and Banana Republic. Work submitted to Waxing & Waning should be honest and well executed. It should scream coherently; it should drag something out of us that we haven’t seen before; it should rip out our black hearts and show them to us. Bring us the work everyone else (including you) is afraid of.
Proper manuscript format will get you bonus points. If your fiction/creative nonfiction is longer than 5,000 words, it must merit the space it will take. For poetry, we're already a little skeptical about your Howl-long epic.

Whiskey Tit attempts to restore degradation and degeneracy to the literary arts. We’re pretty sure we are succeeding here. This is usually because the works don’t fit neatly into genre/length/media packages. We proudly publish books that are too long or too short, books in which the authors insist upon no back cover blurbs, books whose best genre descriptions might be “comedy of terror,” “memnoir,” “randy seafaring misadventure,” or “low-tech noir.”
Please be uncompromising in your vision, unwavering in your standards, and exacting in your vision.
Seeking micro stories and poetry from the speculative realm. Send prose or poetry at 66 words. No more, no less.
Multiple and simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please let me know ASAP if you accept publication elsewhere.
Stretch the possibilities of 66 words. Inspire envy. Break hearts with your prose. Scare readers into sleeping with the lights on. Send universes in raindrops, magical realism, dragons that slay, potions and toadstools, spaceships, other dimensions, grit and butterfly wings, alternate history, and the indefinable.
We publish books that make you think: smart, interesting, character-driven fiction and unusual/thought-provoking nonfiction
We are not currently looking for children's books or poetry.
