Editorial Focus

BLP is currently accepting engaging stories in search of a great home. Their main themes explore the liminal world where anything can happen. Liminal is anything “in-between” or “other.” We love authors who are willing to take a chance and explore the concepts of “other” through a variety of genres. Magic isn’t just for fantasy readers anymore.

Tips From the Editor

If you think your manuscript pushes the boundaries and will leave us breathless, we want to hear from you. Although all manuscripts go through an editing process, your book should be at its best before you submit. The best way to be noticed is to send a professional query letter and a strong summary. Unsolicited emails without a proper query will not be responded to.
