Parvus Press: Accepting Full Manuscript Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone

Updated September 10, 2018

Parvus Press is a new digital first publisher of science fiction and fantasy novels. They have been around for over two years now. The first book they published one book sold over 4,000 copies. They have now published four books, all four have received good reviews. They have two books currently scheduled to be released in 2019 but are hoping to release more, so they are currently looking to acquire manuscripts to round out their publishing schedule for the rest of 2019 and early 2020.

Although still very new, they have an excellent, easy to use, website. They have a good track record with the books they have published. They seem to be actively trying to get an established reputable distributor for their books. They also have a reputable editor on board who has worked with Chuck Wendig. The two founders of the company appear to have a solid background in marketing, which is not the same as publishing, of course, but is a step in the right direction.

Also, they are offering advances of up to $1,500 as well as quarterly royalties on sales. For a new publisher they seem to already be doing some things right.

I also like the fact that they have very clear submission guidelines. They are currently accepting full manuscript submissions. They say they respond to all submissions within 90 days, but I have heard otherwise. I have also heard reports that the editors can be difficult to communicate with, so please take that into consideration
