Now Accepting Submissions for Our 2017 Catalog

We're keeping our eyes out for the next big literary star.
Could that be you?

After working as an assistant acquisitions editor, as well as a number of other roles in traditional publishing, our founder has had a big hand in making decisions about incoming book proposals. Those decisions affected the likelihood that a publishing house would issue a book deal. At Lampas Books, he and the rest of our editorial team are looking for the next big literary star.

We are currently accepting submissions in all genres for our 2017 catalog. We are looking for fresh talent--authors with whom we can grow over the next few years. Here are some additional criteria for our new authors:

  • A fresh approach to age-old and time-tested ideas
  • Compelling writing and strong literary voice
  • Attention to detail and a rich vocabulary
  • A master at the art of writing who is also a master at the mechanics of writing

If you think you have what it takes to be successful as a traditionally published author, fill out the form below and tell us about your work. Since we receive numerous responses every day, please allow four to six weeks for a response. If we like what we see, we'll ask for more.
