Although we like to encourage open, free and creative expression when it comes to some content we do ask the following:
Send us a cover letter and please tell us what questionable content may be found within the MS as we do not wish to subject our editors to content that may put them at risk emotionally.
We do allow rape under certain circumstances, but it should not be meant to titilate.
Writing about child abuse is one thing, but describing the acts in detail are not.
We do put disclaimers about the content if it could potentially disturb our consumers, so please tell the editors ahead of time so they are prepared.
Eternal Press pays 35% royalties to the Author for eBooks and 10% for print. We hold all rights for two (2) years from date of publication.
Open to new writers but please follow our guidelines.
* Be sure to place on page one of your manuscript a small cover letter with your Author's name, contact information, word count and genre. This information is critical to ensure we can contact you with ease.
* Submit your manuscript in a Word.doc or .rtf file. We cannot accept a .pdf file or a hard copy.
* Your manuscript should contain either 1-1/2 or double spacing and one inch margins. Use a 12 pt. Book Antiqua font.
