Future House Publishing: Accepting Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone

Important: Read This Before Submitting Your Manuscript

Seven common manuscript submissions mistakes that are very easy to avoid.

Future House Publishing is an imprint of Familius Press, which in turn is an imprint of Workman. Future House focuses on publishing “adult science fiction and fantasy, as well as middle grade adventure books that embrace community, liberty, and family”. All of the work is clean, free of excessive violence. You can get a feel for what they publish here.

They prefer to work with authors that have plans for a series of 3 or more books. They are represented for TV and Film development by Kaplan Stahler Agency. Foreign Rights are represented by DropCap Rights Agency.

Future House has excellent distribution through Workman. You can read more about them in Publishers Weekly.

They describe themselves as a “family-friendly publisher”. This means that they do not publish anything with excessive profanity, sexual content, or graphic violence. They will not consider work with that sort of content. Adult manuscripts should be between 70,000-90,000 words. Middle grade submissions should be between 40,000-60,000 words in length.

They ask that you submit using a Google Docs form.
