Apocalypse Party: Now Accepting Manuscript Submissions

A small press based out of Pennsylvania, Apocalypse Party says the following about the books they publish: “Our books wobble in the frame of reality and dissect the prism of surreality. These books tend to be difficult to categorize under one banner, but together they form a kaleidoscopic mirror of an increasingly bleak world. However, we’re far from hopeless. We like to have fun, thrive on absurdity, and believe in the power of art.”

They have been actively publishing work since 2018. The work they publish includes novels, novellas, short story collections, and hybrid work. They only publish a few books a year, and they all fit the description I shared above.

To get a feel for what they publish, and their generally amazing covers, go here. They are a small operation. Please spend time with the work that they’ve previously published, and query only if you feel like your work would fit on the same shelf as those books.

They ask that you submit your cover letter and manuscript via email.

They pay authors 50% of net revenue for print and eBooks. They ask for world wide rights. They do not disclose who their distributor is.
