Welcome to the submissions page for DSP.
If you have written a Western novel or a proposal for a Western novel, please send us the materials requested below via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a complete list of DSP requirements read
the submissions guidelines here on PDF.
In order to submit your work, you will need the following:
*SYNOPSIS OF UP TO 1,500 WORDS
*FIRST THREE CHAPTERS (IF APPLICABLE)
*Manuscripts should in the range of 35,000 – 40,000 words per book.
*Preferred submission format is as Word docx, doc or pdf files.
*Times New Roman font at size 12.
*One inch border all round.
*Please submit the full manuscript with a synopsis or a detailed plot of your story.
*Always write your books with a series in mind.
*The central character must be deeply woven into Western lore. Readers flock to characters who are gunslingers, sheriffs, mountain men, frontiersmen, etc.
*The ending of each book needs to have a satisfactory ending with the character’s story being able to carry on to the next book – or seeds of the next book interwoven into the last couple of chapters.
*We look for one new novel around every 40 days. Six books equals a season.
*All covers must fit the formula. The character’s name must feature on the cover at the top followed by the character’s occupation, eg. U.S. Marshal Robert Jones.
Replies can take a little while so please be patient. If you haven’t heard back from us within eight weeks, then please take it your submission has been unsuccessful.
