At this time, we are not accepting submissions of works shorter than 30,000 words. Please make sure your manuscript is completely edited by an editor (no self-edited manuscripts, please).

We favor fiction that uses humor well. We also look for well-rounded world-building across all genres.
Genius Books offers a 50/50 net royalty split, no advance. We are willing to negotiate this under some circumstances.
