stoneslide logo2Stoneslide Books pays a modest advance and a very competitive revenue sharing arrangement after publication. The editors are looking for novels with strong character development and narrative thrust, brought out with writing that’s clear and expressive. Fiction is the driving force though they do not draw distinctions where they aren’t needed. If you have a book-length work of non-fiction, memoir, or something else that seems to fit with their approach, they encourage writers to submit.

Stoneslide Books is closed to regular submissions for the month of June due to the contest.
