Trainwreck Books is currently reading manuscripts of fiction (drama, crime, horror, etc.), science fiction, historical fiction, and children's books.   If you have a piece of work you would like to submit to us that does not fall into the category above, please contact us to let us know.  We can review it and get back with you.

We read year-round and publish in paperback and/or eBook formats. We also gladly accept simultaneous submissions.

Please do not submit translations, work in languages other than English or previously published or self-published materials.

If we are interested in publishing your work, an agreement will be forwarded to you. Our contract requires no investment by the author beyond providing a fully edited manuscript.

Submission Goal:

We will publish any and all accepted submissions.  We are hoping to get at least twelve each year.  If we get more than twelve brilliant submissions, we will publish them all.
