Abbadon Books open submissions month, deadline May 31, 2017
« on: April 26, 2017, 10:22:14 AM »
Abbadon Books are open to submissions of novellas and novels from May 1 to May 31. Note however that they will only publish them on a work-for-hire basis, i.e. they own the work outright, and so could produce sequels, computer games and films without your involvement and presumably without paying you anything more.

If that appeals, here are more details: http://www.abaddonbooks.com/post/1839

They don't want manuscripts yet. At first they are after a 50-100-word "elevator pitch", a bullet-pointed summary of the story (around 1000 words for a novella, 2000 words for a full-length novel), and the first few pages of your submission (again, 1000 words for a novella, 2000 words for a full-length novel).
