Fire Quill Publishing operates internationally, and supports international authors.
Our aspiration is to market popular genres such as fantasy, paranormal, and science fiction, in South Africa. However, we are most certainly open to other genres as well. Please visit our Submission Guidelines for detailed instructions on how to submit your manuscript to Fire Quill Publishing.
Prior to sending us a submission, please read through the guidelines carefully. Also, feel free to consult our profiles to determine if your novel is a good fit for us.
We do NOT publish non-fiction novels, children’s novels, scripts, or poetry at this time. If your project happens to fit into one of these categories, another publisher may be more appropriate for you.
FQP is an environmentally friendly company, and will only receive submitted manuscripts through email at firstname.lastname@example.org
