New UK independent publishing company YoungRebel Publications are open for submissions from Saturday 14th August 2010. We are looking for exciting, fresh stories with main characters aged 16 to 21 years old and accept queries for all genres and lengths, from writers of any age. We are particularly interested in writing that will appeal to our young male readers. A typical YoungRebel story has a strong lead character and an original plot line. It appeals to the tastes of today's young adult readers, not a sanitised distant memory of young adult tastes.
YoungRebel Publications launch on 25th October (the week before Halloween) with an anthology of paranormal shorts and at least one other title. If you have a story that will make our hair stand on end, then we'd like to hear from you. Your short must have a paranormal theme but can cross any other genre. For this anthology we are looking for stories with a maximum length of 3,000 words.
It’s an exciting time in publishing and we passionately believe e-books are the future. The young adult market has been neglected in e-publishing terms, a remarkable fact considering today’s youth are so comfortable with technological media. YoungRebel aims to connect this readership with both established writers and new and upcoming talent.
YoungRebel Publications are a full service, royalty paying company. Submissions by e-mail only. Send a query letter and sample chapters or complete manuscript as a Word compatible attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org . Full submission guidelines are available on the website along with more detailed company and contract information. International authors are welcome.
