MoonQuill cuts out the middlemen and red tape associated with most other publishing programs, providing the quality of work that every author deserves.
Our publishing program offers customizable packages that can be modified to fit your specific needs. Whether you need editors, artists, or a marketing team, we’ve got your back.
We have vetted, battle-tested editors, great cover artists, and a staff full of indie publishing experts.
Our staff has extensive, successful experience publishing and marketing books in all formats, including e-books, paperbacks, and audiobook.
We’ll handle all the logistics that come with preparing a book for sale so that you can focus on your craft.
We will key you into the publishing process and communicate your book’s progress with you as often as you’d like.
Instead of charging a base fee, MoonQuill shares revenue with the author. In other words, if you don't make money, we don't make money. Compared to traditional publishing contracts which typically net the author 5 – 15% of the book's revenue, our contract typically nets the author more than 50% of the book's sales. Most importantly, we know that your manuscripts are your intellectual babies, so you get to keep your copyright!
Our word count requirement is rather flexible. The values below are guidelines and all works will be considered regardless of word count.
Collection of short stories: 40,000+
Collection of poems: No minimum.
Light Novels / Novelettes: 35,000+
All manuscripts are required to be submitted with a query letter and a synopsis. Remember, the letter gives us insight to you, both as a person and as an author. There are no specific requirements for the synopsis, but it should give us a decent idea of what your story is about. Don’t worry about spoilers, this is only seen by staff!
The only file formats we will accept are doc, docx, pdf, rtf, and wpd. We will also accept Google Docs links and MS Word Online links, but please make sure that the sharing options are not restricted to invite only or we will not be able to access the links.
Once you’ve completed your application, our staff will review your work. During this time we may reach out to you via email or Discord with questions for clarification. If this happens, don’t panic! It doesn’t mean your book will be rejected, but it could mean that your book is in the final stage of review.
The selection process may take anywhere from 1 to 3 months depending on how many manuscripts we have in queue, so please bear with us. If at any point you’d like to check the status of your manuscript, drop us an email at email@example.com or contact Jyorin or Moon on our Discord.
If your manuscript is accepted, we’ll contact you to negotiate a contract based on the services you need. If your manuscript is rejected, we may offer suggestions on how to improve for resubmission. You’re welcome to resubmit your manuscript after improvements are made.
