Looking to Publish Your Books:

Gnome On Pig Productions is looking to publish your books.

Submission Guidelines and Publication Information:

  1. Your submission must be emailed to: booksubmissions@gnomeonpigproductions.com

  2. We do not accept physical mail ins, private messages through social media or any other outlet. Your submission must include: your name, your desired pen name, your email address, a PDF sample of the work you wish to have published, if illustrated a sample of at least 3 illustrations, if the piece is new or previously published (documentation to show it is no longer published or under contract). You must be over 18 years of age to submit unless you have permission from a parent and or guardian which must also be submitted.

  3. Sample of the work must include:

    1. Children's Books: A brief outline of what the book is about, three pages of writing in a PDF file with 3 of the illustrations to go with it.  Gnome On Pig Productions currently employs only a small number of illustrators who are all working on projects at this time.  You are responsible for payment to your own illustrator and providing proof of copyright, new creation decoration and or splitting of royalties.  We can help you with the splitting of royalties if this method is approved between the author and illustrator.  We can also point you in the right direction to find an illustrator.

    2. Teen Books: A brief outline of what the book is about including desired genre, a PDF file of the first 1000 words, is the book a stand alone or a part of  a series.  If illustrations are to be included you must provide those upon acceptance to publish the work.

    3. Adult Book: A brief outline of what the book is about including desired genre, a PDF file of the first 2500 words, if the book is a part of a series.

    4. Short Story or Anthology: A brief outline of the stories including desired genre, a PDF file of one of the short  story/stories that will be a part of the publication.

  4.      Fan Fiction, Graphic Novel or Comics:  Gnome On Pig Productions is willing to print fan fiction, graphic novels and comics.  Fan Fiction must include written permission from the original creator and their proper contact information to have the submission approved.  Fan Fictions, Graphic Novel and Comic submissions must include; a 3-5 page sample of the work (set as a digital file), genre, target age demographic, and a brief description of the story line so we know if it is a stand alone or a part of the series.  We will ask further questions.

  5. You must inform Gnome On Pig Productions immediately should your submission be accepted by any other publication (this includes self publishing) so we can remove it from the submissions listing. 

  6. All books must be FICTION. We do not print non-fiction, self-improvement, art, poetry, infant board books, learning materials or texts at this time.

  7. We print in ENGLISH only. If you use any other language in your books it is on the onus of the author to make sure the translations are correct.

  8. Children's books must have their own illustrator as Gnome On Pig Productions does not employ an illustrator at this time. We can guide you to illustrators, but you will need to negotiate prices, royalties and contracts with them on your own. Gnome On Pig Productions will not be responsible for payments to illustrators/artists that are not under our direct employment.

  9. Depending upon the amount of submissions submitted will determine when you hear back about acceptance or rejection of a piece. Our last submission call rendered over 800 submissions and it took up to 10 months for us to get through them all.

  10. You will be notified of acceptance or rejection. Contracts come after acceptance.

  11. Please be informed, Gnome On Pig Productions DOES NOT PAY UPFRONT for any accepted work for publication. We pay by royalty earnings from sales only. We also DO NOT CHARGE any upfront fees to the authors that are accepted. Our portion of royalties is all the author releases.

  12. Authors, illustrators and artist KEEP THEIR COPYRIGHTS. Through contracts you only give permissions for us to reproduce, sell, distribute, advertise on your behalf.

  13. Gnome On Pig Productions strongly recommends you follow us through our social media so we can help you with the self promotion side of the publication process.  It is best to get to know your publisher before entering contracts with them.
