Holland House Press recently launched a new crime, thriller and dystopian digital imprint called PM Press and today we’re just pitching in to help them spread the word that they’re looking for established and aspiring writers to submit their work. Here’s some information about them and their process–check them out!
We are a Kindle-First imprint of Holland House Books that specializes in crime, thriller and dystopian fiction. Phaidra Robinson and Mia Skevington set up PM Press in April 2020 in order to pursue their respective loves of true crime and detective fiction. Our background of LiteraryFiction at Holland House Books means that we bring an expectation of and experience in producing high-quality books to these genres. An inaugural imprint, this is the time for authors to submit their work for the chance to be one of our founding book releases.
Call for Submissions
We are looking for most types of crime and thriller fiction, from the classic English whodunit through to police procedurals, or classic noir through to mind-bending psychological thrillers. Maybe you want to introduce us to a dystopian future. We want well-written, satisfying work – a good twist and convincing characters are the ways to our hearts. It may be cozy and comfortable or dark and disturbing… or something completely different.
If you have a completed novel or novella which you believe may fit, then send us:
1) The first fifty pages of your work.
2) A synopsis of your work (maximum two pages).
3) A covering letter with a brief overview – we do NOT need you to do a brilliant ‘pitch’ or the kind of blurb which would go on the back of the book. The basic story, main character(s) and the general themes is all we need.
These documents should be Word Documents, size 12 in a standard font, with a line spacing of 1.5.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and address them to the Editor Phaidra Robinson.
