Regal Crest Enterprises: Now Accepting Manuscript Submissions

Updated March 2021

Regal Crest Enterprises historically specialized in publishing books of interest to lesbian readers but now their focus has expanded to include gay readers. As of January 1st ,2021 they have rebranded as Flashpoint Publications and they are now focused on publishing LGBTQ+ work.  They mostly publish popular fiction, but they have also published short stories, essays, and anthologies. They have a non-fiction imprint as well. Writers who have worked with them have generally good things to say, particularly about the editing and cover design process. They have been around a long time now and they have a reputation for always paying their royalties promptly.

They do not do much in terms of marketing, but it helps that they have such a specialized niche, because readers often follow the publisher when they know what to expect. They are now Print on Demand only and are distributed by Imgram and Bella distribution.

Their website is basic but reader friendly and it is very well organized. It is a good idea to get a feel for what they publish here. Some of their recent covers have been excellent in terms of genre appeal.

They do not accept simultaneous submissions although they try to respond to all submissions between 6-8 weeks. Their submission guidelines are very thorough and detailed so make sure you review them and double check your submission before submitting. They are now accepting submissions of novella length stories which they were not earlier.
