Omnific Publishing: Accepting Book Synopsis

Written by Emily Harstone | June 26, 2014

Omnific Publishing is romance publishing company that publishes digital books. Omnific started in 2009. At first it seemed like they faced a learning curve to a certain degree. However, they have turned into a successful publishing company, regularly landing books on the Kindle bestsellers lists. Also, a number of their books have been picked up by larger publishing companies for the print editions. One of their books was even given a 7 figure advance to be made into a movie. All this has happened in less than five years.

Omnific Publishing started out by publishing a number of stories by authors of fan-fiction (fiction written by a fan of, and featuring characters from, a particular TV series, movie, etc.). Of course, for legal reasons, the authors had to change names and elements of the characters, etc. The works they published were largely set in Alternate Universes (this kind of writing is known as AU in the fan-fiction community). Most works set in an Alternate Universes are very different from the original TV show, movie, or book to begin with. This was a smart move on Omnific’s part as many of these authors and stories already had established followings. Remember, 50 Shades of Grey started out as Twilight fan-fiction, although it was not published by Omnific.

It seems like most of the newer work they publish does not have fan-fiction origins. Omnific, over time, seems to have leaned towards romance publishing and their tagline is “romance without the rules.”

In July 2014 Gallery Books entered a co-publishing agreement with Omnific Publishing, Because of that agreement the Gallery Books and Pocket Books imprints will co-publish with Omnific a select number of titles in print and electronic formats. Additionally Simon & Schuster will now serve as the exclusive distributor of all other Omnific titles.

They accept submissions in all sub genres of romance, including Historical, Young Adult, Contemporary, Paranormal,  New Adult, and Erotic Romance. They will consider manuscripts between 60,000 and 80,000 words, but only with the understanding that the book will have to be edited down to a maximum of 75,000 words before being published.  Also, shorter works are considered under the condition that they will be anthologized.

When you initially contact them you do so through an easy to fill out submission form on their website.  If you are interested in learning more or submitting visit their website here.
