Submission Guidelines

Our goal is to provide our authors with the close-knit, hands-on experience of working with a small press, while making sure they don't have to sacrifice quality editing, cover art, and marketing. Authors who sign with Surge can expect:

  • Release in digital and print/POD formats
  • An editor assigned to provide quality editing and to guide you every step of the way throughout the publication process
  • A marketing/publicity specialist who will create a marketing/publicity plan specific to your book, inclusive of advertising
  • High-quality covers expertly designed specifically for your book
  • Royalties in the amount of 40% on net for digital format and 9-12% net on all other formats
*Currently, we do not accept proposals for works yet to be written. Only query us if your manuscript is complete.

As a Christian press, we publish books with a strong inspirational theme and/ or a message of faith. We do not accept manuscripts with the following:
  • Anti-Christian propaganda/ themes
  • Gratuitous sex
  • Messages of religious or social intolerance
  • Angel/human or demon/human romantic relationships
  • Werewolf, vampire, demon, etc. protagonists
To submit a manuscript for consideration, send a query letter and the first ten pages in the body of an email to Surge[at]anaiahpress[dot]com.

Include the word "Query" and the title of your work in the subject line. We do respond personally to every query received. Please allow 8-12 weeks for a response. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but we do ask that out of professional courtesy, you let us know if you receive an offer from another publisher or agent.
