The querying and submissions process is demeaning and generally preposterous. Even using the word “Submit” is a little nauseating. “SUBMIT TO US!” It’s kind of gross, right? We are not interested in anyone kissing anyone’s ass. We just want to read your work. Email your manuscript and any information you’d like us to know about it. If you’d like to include a synopsis, traditional query letter, and a short bio as well, we won’t stop you, but don’t stress about any of that. We only care about your work.

Send your manuscript as a Word attachment or in the body of an email to If we think what you wrote fits with us, and we think we can help you with it, we will reach out to you as soon as we are able.

Dead Star Press is a very small and limited operation. We have full time jobs and while we do this with the dream of it being profitable someday, we understand that, for now, this is a passion project for everyone on our end. Please temper your expectations accordingly.
