HarperFiction is launching a brand new digital crime and thriller imprint. It’s called Killer Reads and initially, for a limited period, they are opening their doors to un-agented submissions of crime and thriller novels.
Killer Reads is looking for a wide range of submissions from across the genre, ranging from police procedurals to psychological thrillers, to high-concept thrillers and beyond. The selected manuscripts will be the first titles to be published.
‘This is a hugely exciting opportunity for us to discover emerging talent in the crime and thriller area and bring their work to readers hungry for new stories.’ says, Sarah Hodgson, Deputy Publishing Director.
Submissions will be accepted from 29th August until 14th September 2014. From 29th August writers can submit their full manuscript, a synopsis of their novel and an author biography, by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The inbox will be active from 29th August and all submissions will be read by the imprint’s editors.
All entered novels must be complete, written in English and at least 70,000 words long.
