If you have recently submitted to Grey Gecko Press or have experience with this market, please submit a comment below. Recent submission response times are always welcome and helpful to other writers.

From the Grey Gecko Press guidelines:

Grey Gecko accepts submissions ranging from short story length (1,500 words minimum) to extended-length novels (150,000+ words) and everything in between.

The genres we don’t publish are:

· Extreme horror

Think Saw and Hostel. Violence for the sake of violence, gore just for kicks. There may be a market for this, but we’re not it.

· Erotica

If the book has sex in it, that’s fine. If it’s only sex, or 90% sex, then that’s erotica, and we’re just not interested.

· Religious Fiction

An example of this genre would be the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins.

Send us a query letter, including a brief summary of the work submitted, a full outline of the work, detailing the entire plot point-by-point, and a sample of the work. For novellas, one chapter; for novels, 3 chapters. Short stories may be submitted in their entirety.
