At Clean Teen Publishing, we believe that our readers deserve to know ahead of time what they are reading. We do not believe in censorship; we believe in the right to know. Every reader, no matter what their age is, has certain boundaries they don’t want to cross. Currently there is no consistent rating system in place for books like there are for movies, music, and video games. We believe by offering a wider range of disclosure about the content of our books, we will give parents, and readers of all ages, a stronger sense of comfort according to what lies between the pages. With that said, we will not deem whether a book is clean or appropriate or inappropriate for any particular age range. The content of our books vary drastically but our disclosure is readily there for you to know what is in the book, and we leave it up to you to decide what you are comfortable with reading.
At Clean Teen Publishing, we believe our authors, who create new and amazing literary worlds, deserve to receive a large share of the profits that their art creates. We also believe that our authors deserve the support of quality editing, breathtaking covers, and the power of a strong marketing presence behind them. As authors ourselves, we know that your writing comes from your heart and, in a sense, is a part of you. We will carefully protect that part of you and work hard to keep your creative vision alive.
What we are looking for:
Well-written YA (young adult) or NA (new adult) novels that are between 50,000 and 110,000 words. While we accept stand-alone books, our ideal submission would be the first two books in a series or a novel with a novella that is a prequel to the novel. We are looking for something unique and breathtaking. We are seeking authors who are 18 or older and ready to work hard to build their author brand and to actively market their books alongside us.
How to submit:Please send the following to: Submissions@CleanTeenPublishing.com
**Please note that we do not accept attachments!**
A brief synopsis of your book in two paragraphs or less, your word count, and any previous publishing accomplishments.
For Self-published Works: We will only consider previously self-published work if your submission includes a new book in the series. For example: Book 1 could have been self-published, but now you have Book 2 completed and you would like to submit them as a series to our publishing house. Please include information in your submission of when you first released book one in your series, your average monthly sales or downloads, and why you are looking to move from self-published to our Indie publishing house.
**Please allow us six to eight weeks to get back with you. You will receive an email from us after we’ve reviewed your submission.**
