Open Call for Book Submissions for Publication

Anthology EconomicsOpen Call for Submissions: Left Hand Publishers is now accepting writing submissions for publication. In our Open Call, we accept only novels, novellas, and short story collections (as an entire book). Manuscript submissions should be no less than 50,000 words. No short stories unless as a collection that totals at least 50,000 words, please. We will review your manuscript submission and contact you on the viability of Left Hand Publishers accepting it to be published.

Submissions must:

  • Be 50,000 words or more
  • Be Formatted properly
  • Be proof-read for typos, grammatical errors
  • Contain a plot, conflict of some sort, and engaging characters

Also, if you have submitted a manuscript and have not received an email acknowledging receipt in 72 hours (a human editor reviews your formatting, etc., not an automatic email responder), please email us at to confirm.

Submitting automatically registers you in our Register To Win an Author’s Website contest where you could win a FREE author website (some restrictions apply).

See our Privacy Policy page for details, but we do NOT sell your information to anyone or release it.


We apologize if this does not apply to you. We are receiving a tremendous response to this contest, and of course, quite a bit of spam. If you are receiving a response, you are very likely a legitimate email address. Also, if an email bounces back, we will remove it from our contest registration. We will report all spam email, as such, to the FCC. You must supply a valid email address in order to be registered in the contest. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience, and good luck.

Publishing, Independent, Writers, Authors, Manuscripts, marketing, EditingLeft Hand Publishers is NOT a vanity press. We will never ask the writer for an investment or to pay any part of the cost of being published. We provide our publishing services as a percentage of revenue which we participate in, once the work sells. Optional Services are available to writers who need assistance in getting their manuscripts and/or their marketing tools honed for a successful and profitable publishing experience. For various consulting services, outside of publishing, we will provide an estimate in advance at no charge. For more information, contact us at .
