Unsolicited Manuscript Submission Guidelines
Wolfpack Publishing would love to see your manuscript. We are currently accepting unsolicited manuscripts in the following fiction genres: men's adventure, mystery & suspense, crime, historical and action-adventure. We are NOT accepting submissions for western manuscripts at this time.
If you have a manuscript that you would like us to consider for publication, worldwide marketing and distribution? Please fill out the following information, attach your manuscript and submit. All fields are required in order for the form to be accepted.
ALLOW AT LEAST ONE MONTH FOR RESPONSE. IF YOU DO NOT HEAR BACK ON YOUR SUBMISSION, IT MEANS THAT YOUR PROJECT DOESN'T FIT OUR CURRENT EDITORIAL NEEDS. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE WOLFPACK OFFICES IN REGARDS TO SUBMISSIONS.
If accepted you'll earn as much as 35% of the cover price. Get paid monthly and within days of our receiving a check from the distributors. You will also receive worldwide exposure to your efforts.
Wolfpack Publishing covers 100% of the production and marketing costs. A great deal of Wolfpack Publishing's marketing is focused on the author, therefore authors with multiple manuscripts will get additional attention towards their submissions.
We built our company on out of print backlist books and still get a thrill out of watching a forgotten asset come back to life. Authors with rights to multiple backlist titles are highly encouraged to contact us. Don't worry about digital manuscripts on out of print titles. As long as we can find a paper copy of the book or books we can publish.
If you are under the age of 18, you must have parental approval to submit your work, and you must have that permission stated on the first page of your manuscript along with the name and contact information of your guardian.
Wolfpack Publishing FAQ
What genre of books does Wolfpack Publishing accept?
Wolfpack is currently accepting manuscripts in most genres except Western Fiction at this time. What started as a small Western Fiction publishing company grew into something much larger and all-encompassing. While we still specialize in westerns we have bestselling novels in a variety of genres.
Men's Adventure, Historical Fiction, Horror, Action Adventure, Mystery and Suspense are just a few of the genres that we have seen succeed. If we do not believe your genre suits Wolfpack we will try to redirect you to one of our sister imprints or an alternative publishing solution.
How often do you take on new authors?
We do not set a time span or a limit on when we are accepting new authors. If we see something we like then we will do our best to make it happen. If you think you have what it takes and you have a manuscript that will impress us, go ahead and submit it.
Unlike most publishers, we want to see new authors succeed and are willing to take a chance on new talent.
Do I need an agent in order to work with Wolfpack Publishing?
No, you do not need an agent to work with Wolfpack, but if you do, that is okay as well.
We have a very hands-on approach and want you involved in the whole process, we want to get to know you and want our readers to do the same. Also, one perk is that without an agent you get all the royalties.
However, if you are new to the industry and need more guidance than others, an agent might be useful. They will be able to show you the ropes and pave the way for you. Not all agents specialize in the same thing, so if you believe you need one it is important to find an agent that best suits your needs.
Can I submit my manuscript to Wolfpack if it has been published in the past?
Yes! Here at Wolfpack we not only love new titles, but previous titles and back lists as well! If you have a book that was previously published and didn’t do so well we understand and want to help. As long as you have recovered the rights to your work we are more than happy to work with you.
We know that sometimes books get published too quickly and with very little marketing and do not do so well, we don’t want that.
Our team will work with you to fix this problem and ensure success the second time around. Wolfpack will make the necessary changes including a new cover, marketing plan and promoting you and your books! It’s a completely fresh start!
Will I be responsible for my own book marketing plan?
Nope! The good thing about Wolfpack is we do all the work for you. You can be as involved in the marketing and promotional plans as you choose to be, or choose not to be!
Experience has taught us that having an online presence as an author is crucial in the success of your work in today's digital environment. So we want to help with that. We will create a marketing plan that not only promotes your books, but you as well.
We will help you to establish an online following. And give you tips and tricks to create and run your own social media if you would like to interact with readers.
What formats does Wolfpack Publishing publish their books in?
We currently specialize in eBooks, Print On Demand Paperbacks and audio books.
eBooks are and have been taking over the industry and are currently the most successful. As much as we love print books, we know they are a dying breed and want to make sure your work is seen in the most popular format, eBooks.
There is a lot more that can be done with eBooks, such as further promotions and hyperlinks. Once we get the eBook published we can continue with the production of the print edition.
If my work is accepted will I have any say in the process?
Yes, that’s what makes Wolfpack so different compared to the big traditional publishers. We want you to be involved without having to do the work. We won’t make any changes or big decisions without running them past you first.
If you have an idea of how you want your book formatted or your cover to look we want to hear it. Unlike the big publishers who take your manuscript and you don’t hear from them again, we keep you involved in the whole process and encourage you to have a voice.
