Cohesion Press: Now Accepting Book Submissions

UPDATED April 2019: They appear to only be publishing anthologies now, and they often have open calls for stories for anthologies, but they are no longer publishing novels.

Cohesion Press is a small press publishes novels in the sub genres of military horror, military sci-fi, and creature-based thrillers. They have only been around for a few years but they have already published 19 books, although many are part of the same series.

They offer 50% of gross income on all electronic and print sales. They have a lot of detailed requirements so I recommend that you read their guidelines before submitting.

Their owner is Geoff Brown, the past president of the Australian Horror Writers Association. He also runs an editing company under a similar name. They are an Australian based company.

When you submit your pitch please include a brief cover letter in the body of the email. All submissions must be made via email. The rest of your submission should be attached as a word document.

Make sure to include your contact information on the top left and total word count on the top right. Title and author name should be centered. The full synopsis (no more than 600 words in length) and author bio should be included.

Include any promotional experience you have as well as your website, blog, social media links, etc. Also submit the first three chapters (or the first 10,000 words). All of this should be one attached document. The subject of the email should be genre_[title]_[surname].

They try to respond to all submissions within two weeks. If you have not heard from them at that point, feel free to query.
