Solstice Publishing: E-Book Publisher Open to Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone

Important: Read This Before Submitting Your Manuscript

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

Solstice is a publishing house based out of the United States that publishes e-books and print on demand books. They prefer to deal with authors directly instead of working with agents.

They publish a wide variety of work and consider full manuscripts instead of asking for outlines. They all accept all submissions via submission manager and they have a much quicker turn around time than most small publishers.

Some authors have had favorable experiences with them. Others have not. To read more about these personal experiences you can read the complete thread on the publisher at here at Absolute Writes. If you are considering submitting to them. I highly recommend that you read that thread first. They do minimal promotion for the work they publish. They also do not let authors have a say in the cover of their own book, and many of the book covers are completely unappealing.

On their website they publish a great deal of conflicting data, which is confusing, but I have tried to feature the information that seems to be most relevant.

Solstice has six imprints that cover everything from faith to erotica. They really publish a wide range of genres.

They consider work that has been previously published or self published but NOT if it is currently up for sale at the time the book is submitted to them.

The manuscript you submit to them should already be edited and polished. All submissions must be made through submittable.
