I can now share this information with you taken from the newsletter for Telos Publishing.

I have recently been appointed Commissioning Editor for this wonderful new imprint! TELOS MOONRISE (Information below) and I'm delighted to be involved.

Submissions for 'Steampunk Visions' and 'Dark Endeavours' are currently closed until later this year. However there will be a short submission period for 'Sinful Pleasures' (Erotica) and 'Criminal Pursuits' (Crime/Thriller) and more information on Telos' submission guidelines and the dates of submission will be revealed shortly.

For now ...


After much consideration and planning, we are delighted to announce the launch of Telos Moonrise, a new digital and POD imprint for Telos, which we hope will expand to cover a wider variety of fiction than we are currently able to undertake in the more traditional publishing lines. Titles are planned to be made available in ebook formats for Kindle, Kobo and Nook, and for those who still love books, all the titles will also be available as print on demand paperbacks via Amazon.

Consultant and editor for the imprint is Sam Stone, herself an acclaimed and award-winning author, and she will be commissioning and looking for titles in all four of the initial lines which are planned:

o ‘Steampunk Visions’: Explore alternate worlds, past, present and future in our exciting new Steampunk range. There will be action, adventure and, of course, superb gadgets.

o ‘Criminal Pursuits’: Look into the darkest depths of the criminal mind and explore the darker side of humanity with our Crime and Thriller titles.

o ‘Dark Endeavours’: Delve into the supernatural, urban and dark fantasy, or the darkest horror imaginable. Or simply explore fantasy realms and alternate worlds where anything can happen from myth and magic to sword-wielding warriors.

o ‘Sinful Pleasures’: Brings sexual fantasies, love or simply unbridled lust, with good strong stories, believable characters and a large helping of erotica in all its forms.

Telos Moonrise launches with a ‘Dark Endeavours’ title: Absinthe and Arsenic, a collection of dark, mysterious and comedic tales by award winning dark fantasy and steampunk author Raven Dane.

Details of publication dates and other details will be available as soon as they are confirmed. We will make submission guidelines available on the Telos site as soon as they have been finalised, and when the range is opened for unsolicited submissions. Please keep an eye on the Telos news page, and the Telos Facebook page for details.
