New Frontier currently accepts unsolicited manuscripts. We receive a number of submissions, but are only able to publish a select a few. We do read all submissions we receive as we know that there are gems waiting for us.
It usually takes us about four months to respond to submissions. Before you send anything please look through
our list and read some of our books. That way, you can come to understand the books we love.
We encourage you to purchase one of our submission packs which includes samples of our published works.

Our submissions process is important to us as we have found many gems along the way through this process.
We receive thousands of manuscripts each year and only a small percentage are published. We are no longer able to send individual responses. If you have not heard from us after four months then unfortunately your submission has been unsuccessful. We want to assure aspiring authors that each manuscript is read and carefully assessed.
