The latest is a political message relevant to the US. Religious zealots claim that gay marriage is a threat to marriage in general, and therefore a Constitutional ban is justified. We think that if the religious idiots really believed in protecting marriage, they'd be more interested in banning divorce. Our new classy shirts and coffee cup express that idea eloquently.

nightwares Books is a small alternative press that is wholly owned by nightwares LLC.

We welcome submissions of manuscripts of every variety — we do not specialize by genre, though we prefer titles of LGBT interest. We accept works of nonfiction and technical books as well, and will also consider collections of short stories, poems and more.

We purchase electronic and first-run hardcopy publication rights and offer a generous royalty package in exchange. We do not offer advances, but pay flat author royalties at fifty percent of the net publication price. This means if your title sells at ten dollars per copy (after electronic delivery expenses, which amount to 45% of the cover price), you will receive five dollars for every copy sold. We pay royalties in US dollars on a quarterly schedule.

We are not a vanity or subsidy press. You pay nothing to have your book published. You simply write the text, and we package it for publication and release it.

Please look over our general submission gudelines before submitting a work for consideration.

To submit your manuscript for consideration, send an email query to NWPressQuery@nightwares.com. Include a description of your text and several sample chapters, ideally in series. Do not send the entire manuscript with your query.
