Submissions

Interested in writing for Tule Publishing? Come check out our imprints and find which suits your story best!

Please note that our editorial calendar is completely full for 2019 and early 2020. American Hearts, Holiday, Montana Born, Texas Born and Tule Mystery are still accepting for 2020.

At Tule Publishing, we value our commitment to the author. We are a publishing company founded by an author, for authors. We are interested in working with authors who know their brand and vision, and are passionate about what they write. We recognize that love is both universal and personal and we are always interested in original story telling and diverse experiences. We are currently seeking stories with unique and diverse voices for all imprints. If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you. We accept both agented and unagented submissions that have not been previously published.

It is necessary that submissions to our romance imprints have a central romance plot with a happily-ever-after, or at least, a happy-for-now ending. We ask that for all imprints your stories fall within the categorized lengths below:

    • Short Novel: 45k – 60k words
    • Long Novel: 60k – 100k words

We will only look at novellas if they are part of a collection.

We are also very interested in stories with series potential.

Please note that we are currently only accepting a limited number of romantic suspense and women’s fiction titles.

As we are a digital first publisher, we would like to work with authors who have a strong online presence and who are committed to promoting and marketing their work. We do work with debut authors, but expect those authors to actively build their brand.
