What's good, Authors?
We are accepting submissions to join the Cartel Publications (Urban Fiction), Toy Chest Publications (Children’s Books), Lifted Publications (Life and Self Help Books) and Color Coded Publications (LGBT Urban Fiction Books)! We are seeking authors who not only produce hot storylines but who also give the time and energy necessary to make their novels successful by promoting. As an author myself, I often had to work harder than the publisher I was with and you should, too. If your life doesn’t permit you to get 100% behind your work, do not send it in.
Lastly, before sending your manuscript, take some time to consider the content. We are only interested in URBAN stories with heavy street themes for Cartel Publications. We are looking for children’s stories–preferably dealing with sensitive issues for Toy Chest Publications. We are looking for healing, uplifting and self help novels for Lifted Publications. Last but not least, we want lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, or transgender urban fiction tales for Color Coded Publications. If your novel does not fit into any of these categories, although it may be good, we are not interested at this time. Don’t give up on your career if this is the case. Do your research. There are many companies that publish the genre that you may fit in.
Thanks again for considering our company! We wish you major success in your career.
~T. Styles, President & CEO
