Castle Bridge Media is an independent publisher of predominantly genre books, with particular interest in horror, science fiction, thriller, and fantasy. We also dabble in non-fiction titles as well. However, regardless of the genre, if the work is good, we will consider it. Novels should generally run between 80,000 and 120,000 words.
Please email a query letter and the first five chapters of your book copied into the body of your email to: email@example.com. Put the word QUERY: the title of the work and the author's name in the header of your email (i.e. QUERY: Misery by Stephen King). Queries with attachments will not be opened or considered, so please don't send them. We do not accept submissions by mail.
We will read your query. We generally respond within 3-6 months. If we like your book, we will ask for the completed manuscript. Please do not submit a query without a completed manuscript. We also accept simultaneous submissions, just please tell us if you've placed your work somewhere else.
Thank you so much for your interest in Castle Bridge Media!
