#Pit2Pub Participating Publishers

Now that the #Pit2Pub Twitter Pitch Party is only a month away, it's time to post a list of participating publishers ready to read your Twitter Pitch. Maybe they'll pick you!

(For more details on the contest, go to my previous post HERE or to my Kristin D. Van Risseghem's blog HERE.)

I'll admit to a slight bias by putting my publisher first, but keep reading down the list--there are a lot of great publishers signed up to read through your twitter pitches on July 15th.

Curiosity Quills Press is a publisher of hard-hitting dark sci-fi, speculative fiction, and paranormal works aimed at adults, young adults, and new adults.
We provide our authors with a full-service publishing experience, marketing support, and technical know-how, while ensuring that these literary marauders are truly the cream of the crop through a highly selective acquisition process.


  • Thought-provoking, mind-twisting rollercoasters – challenge our mind, turn our world upside down, and make us question. Those are the makings of a true literary marauder.
  • Serialization Potential – If your work was made with serialization in mind, we want to hear from you. If not – that’s okay! We still want to hear from you.
  • Agented submission are not required, but will receive precedence over unagented ones.

    • Young Adult: 45k to 75k words

  • As a new generation publisher we want to see our authors succeed, therefore, our royalty structure is much different than other “traditional publishers. Which includes a higher royalty rate.

Fey Publishing: We bring new talent to light. Our mission is to produce quality books that are a bit different from the mainstream. We push boundries aside and aim for something unique, unexpected and completely unforgettable.

Dark Fey contains our collection of books of a darker nature. These fall under the horror, dark science fiction, fantasy and speculative fiction genres. Classic Fey encompasses a different range and style of books fron heart-warming stories to non-traditional romance.

Submission guidelines can be found HERE..

Fantasy Works Publishing: We are a fantasy publishing company offering full service (absolutely no fees) to our authors and excellent, well edited, high quality books for our readers. When we say that we accept series, we mean the entire series at one time. Our wish is to relieve the author of the burden associated with completing book two. By that, I mean the burdensome task of shopping book two around to yet another publisher before beginning book three. It’s a nasty little cycle we aim to eradicate.

We also understand this goes against the grain of traditional publishing. Who cares. They only want to test the waters with new authors, and if immediate success isn’t found, then toss you to the curb and move on to the next author. The thing is, with any new author, success is rarely found in the first book. Usually, it is the author’s productivity, relentless marketing and proven quality of work that leads to sustained success.

Pandamoon Publishing: Pandamoon Publishing is an independent publishing house in Austin Texas. We are a royalty-paying, non-subsidy publisher who believes the relationship between the author and the publisher is paramount to success. We are different in that our management team has decades of invaluable experience in publishing and other technology and consumer industries and we bring the best practices of each to the publishing realm.

Pandamoon is a unique opportunity that utilizes all of my skill sets at once, as well as my love of technology, publishing, marketing, and lifelong learning. I have spent the last year building a team of extremely experienced and talented editorial, production, and publicity people who share my passion for building strong relationships with our authors. Everyone here has been quick to learn the value of and adopt my processes that are so efficient that we can reduce production time and return a much higher royalty rate to our authors. Bottom line, I know that our success is totally dependent upon the level of customer service, support, and response that we provide our readers and authors.

Dingbat Publishing: We want stories that are different, fresh, original, timeless. Story quality is far more important than genre or length. Is it well written? Is it a story that gets us excited? Can we believe in these characters and want to see them through to their journey's end?

If you've written a story that doesn't fit easily into a typical genre subdivision — such as a paramilitary psychological mystery, or an inspirational young adult comedy thriller, or a mainstream romance with comedic elements — then your story might be what we're looking for.

Bookfish Books: BookFish Books is a publisher of quality young adult, new adult, and middle grade fiction. Our team works alongside our authors to create the best possible work, novels our authors and our house can stand behind proudly.

We are looking for middle grade, young adult, and new adult novels in all subgenres. Both published or unpublished, agented or unagented authors are welcome to submit.

Clean Teen Publishing: At Clean Teen Publishing, we believe our authors, who create new and amazing literary worlds, deserve to receive a large share of the profits that their art creates. We also believe that our authors deserve the support of quality editing, breathtaking covers, and the power of a strong marketing presence behind them.

As authors ourselves, we know that your writing comes from your heart and, in a sense, is a part of you. We will carefully protect that part of you and work hard to keep your creative vision alive.Clean Teen Publishing is currently looking for well-written YA (young adult) or NA (new adult) fiction novels that are between 50,000 and 110,000 words.
