Due to a full upcoming catalog, we are currently closed for
Dante’s Heart published its first e-book, Lilith, in early 2011, and we are currently
planning the second. At this time, we are open to prose submissions between 6,000
words and novel length – we love novellas! Please submit a query together with a
writing sample of 1,000 words or less to email@example.com.
What we are looking for: Water changed into wine. Successful submissions will
capture our sense of wonder and will make us think. Astound us. Worry us. Cut us,
make us cry. Make us laugh. Make us see the world a little differently during and
after reading your e-book.
Currently, Dante’s Heart is distributing e-books to Amazon Kindle devices and
Kindle apps for computers and mobile devices. Payment to authors works as
follows: Amazon takes a slice and then pays a generous royalty. 80% of that
royalty is retained by the author of the book; Dante’s Heart receives 20% as a fee
for publishing, marketing, and promoting the book. In many cases, Dante’s Heart
will identify and cover the expense of procuring cover art.

artists, we hope to in the near future. Short stories, short-shorts, flash fiction, and
minimalist poetry are welcome, as are dramatic scenes and short plays. We prefer
work under 4,000 words.
Digital submissions only, but not just looking for “digital art.” We are open to
varied forms and media, including photography. We are especially interested in
work that illustrates, revisits, or peers into a classical or prevalent myth, fairy tale,
or fantastic narrative.
Please query to suggest a book/film/graphic novel review. Reviews should be no
longer than 600 words.
