We interrupt Picture Book Month to bring you this breaking news!

Sci-fi and fantasy publisher Angry Robot has announced 2017 Open Door. For two months only they are relaxing their normally strict procedures, and accepting novel submission from unagented authors.

British-based Angry Robot is a global imprint dedicated to the best in modern adult science fiction, fantasy and everything in between. They publish in all formats (ebook, print, & audiobook). As part of Watkins Media Ltd., their titles are distributed worldwide. They offer advances and good royalty rates.

Well-respected for their science fiction and fantasy books, Angry Robot occasionally publishes urban fantasy, steampunk, and horror. Beyond normal marketing efforts, they also interact with their dedicated fan base known as the “Robot Army,” a street team of bloggers, reviewers, and commentators from the science fiction world.

Submissions are open from November 1 till December 31, 2017.

Word length: 70,000-130,000 words, no exceptions

Manuscripts will be read after the door closes. Chosen manuscripts will be acquired and published, with an advance and royalties.

Submit your manuscript online.

Be sure to read and follow the lengthy instructions at Open Door 2017 – Guides, FAQ & Submission.
