Literary Wanderlust began in 2014 with the goal of helping new and experienced authors achieve their dreams of publishing. We are a coalition of editors and publishing professionals working together to make our authors successful, and our goal is to grow slowly but steadily by publishing books we love.

We are a royalty paying publisher of print and digital books. We publish well-written novels in various genres, as well as interesting non-fiction, and short story collections of all genres, and we never charge reading fees. We publish print and digital simultaneously.

Our initial royalty rates for first-time authors are 10% for print, and 25% for digital. Subsequent books' royalty rates are negotiable.

We support our authors with quality editing and commercial covers, and partner with them to market their books. We truly believe in a publisher / author marketing partnership. Our authors’ successes are our successes.

We accept unsolicited manuscripts. We do not accept previously-published manuscripts. We process submissions usually within eight to twelve weeks. Word counts should be approximately 65,000 to 100,000 words for full-length fiction novels. Non-fiction projects and Short Story Collections have no length requirement. View our Submissions page for more information.
