How To Submit A Manuscript

Your Submission Email should include the following –

  • Your name and contact details
  • Pen name (if you wish to work under one)
  • Title of your novel
  • ‘The back of the novel’ – we want to see what you would put on the back of your work; no spoilers, no full plot descriptions, we want to only have as much as we would if we picked up the novel in a store and looked at the back
  • Your submission – Word attachment (please make sure it’s compatible with all versions of Word)

Any poetry submission should also include authors you feel you resemble and why.

By sending us your work, you agree that, until the work has been assessed and a clear “yes” or “no” stated from us, Gold Orchid Publishing (by yes or no we mean acceptance of your work or us declining to publish it), you will offer it to NO other publisher.

When contacting Gold Orchid Publishing for a submission, please include the title and your name in your subject line as follows – “Submission – Title – Name”

Please send all submissions to submissions@goldorchidpublishing.com and check the Contact Page for all other email addresses!

We will try to reply to all inquiries and questions within a week.
Authors can expect an answer within one to four weeks.
