Any email containing unsolicited attachments will be deleted without opening. We will respond within six weeks, at which point we will request more if we are interested.

We are currently closed to unsolicited submissions of full-length manuscripts

We are open to submissions of short fiction for our anthologies. Check out the details below.

Amphibian Anthologies

Do you have a shorter piece that you think would be great in one of our upcoming anthologies?

We are looking for finished, polished pieces of approximately 10K in length. While we are open to work containing characters and worlds from other work you have published, the piece itself must be original and previously unpublished. We appreciate that many characters walk difficult roads, and our stories reflect that, however, we will not accept work that contains or glorifies gratuitous violence, abuse, or sex that does not provide respectful character development.

We offer a $25 token payment per piece and Amphibian Press has exclusive English rights to the piece for 180 days, after publication, after which the rights will revert back to you. 

We are currently open to submissions for SURRENDER TO PASSION (steamy romance) and MY SOUL TO TAKE (ghost/haunting horror).

To submit your piece, please fill out the form below.

Submission FAQs

Don't see your question below? Shoot us an email and we'll get back to you soon.

What does "polished" mean?

  • A third or forth draft, as free of typos and grammar issues as possible--beyond simply a SpellCheck run-through. Use Grammarly, beta-readers, or even your own professional editor before you submit.

I have an unfinished story, but I think it would be a great fit. Can I send the idea to you?

  • Feel free to run the concept by us via social media, but please wait until you have a finished, polished, piece before officially submitting.

What does "exclusive English rights" mean?

  • Exclusive English Rights means we have the exclusive right (within the confines of the specific publishing contract we sign with you) to publish that piece in the English language.

What other anthologies do you have planned?

  • In addition to second volumes of each anthology genre, we also are planning Steam Punk, Historical Romance, Contemporary Romance, Horror, Pirate Romance, Distopian/Post-Apocalyptic

When will you be open for full-length submissions?

  • That's TBD, but if you subscribe to this newsletter, you'll be the first to know!

I know you're closed for submissions, but we've talked on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram and I think you'd really like my work. Can I send it to you?

  • Not unless we have specifically invited you to do so, and even then that's not a guarantee that your piece will be accepted for publication.

I write a genre neither of you listed, would you still be interested?

  • Not at this time, but when we're open to queries, feel free to send us one. As always, keep writing!
