Authors Wanted!

Uproar Books is actively seeking science-fiction and fantasy novels with realistic characters in highly imaginative worlds.

We want to see genuine emotion and meaningful struggles. And maybe a dragon or spaceship, too. But mostly the genuine and meaningful stuff.

Here’s what we’re looking for:


SCIENCE-FICTION

SPACE OPERA

DYSTOPIAN

CYBERPUNK

POST-APOCALYPTIC



FANTASY

EPIC

HISTORICAL & ALT HISTORY

HIDDEN REALMS/PORTAL

SWORD & SORCERY


Good so far? Excellent!

Uproar Books also insists that all novels be the first book in a planned series of at least three. It’s not that we don’t love standalone novels; it’s just the economics of being a small, independent publisher make it necessary for all of our books to lead to sequels. 

Also, your manuscript must be complete and at least 70,000 words.

We DO accept Young Adult as long as the characters are realistic and complex enough to have crossover appeal to adult audiences. Again, this is an economic necessity despite how much we love traditional YA literature. 

Here’s what we do NOT accept (at this time):

  • Urban Fantasy
  • Superheroes
  • Any book where more than 50% of the action takes place on modern-day Earth (unless it’s in a hidden realm like with that orphaned young wizard everyone is so fond of)

Everything Clear?

If you think your manuscript might be a good fit for Uproar Books, please email the first three chapters or the full manuscript directly to our publisher Rick Lewis at this email address.
