Write for Serenade Publishing

Serenade Publishing is always on the lookout for talented writers—from established authors to those just starting their writing careers. We publish a wide range of stories and welcome writers from all backgrounds, cultures and communities to submit to the genre best suited to them.


Serenade Publishing is a small publishing house that focuses on authors. Our emphasis is e-publishing first, then audio and print for selected titles. 

As a full-service publisher  we pay for professional editing, cover art, formatting, e-conversion, marketing support and social media. We are selective and do not accept every submission.

Serenade Publishing is not a self-publisher. We accept only manuscripts that fit our quality standards and imprint descriptions. We require no financial input from you, just quality writing and marketable books.

We employ experienced professionals to edit, format, e-convert, publish, and market your manuscript in the most successful way possible.

We are specifically interested in:

  • Commercial Fiction
  • Romance
  • Fantasy
  • Cozy Mysteries
  • Personal development 

How to submit:

  1.  Write a cover letter. This is your opportunity to hook us; tell us why we should acquire your book. 
  2. Write a story synopsis. This is an outline or summary of your story, with plot outline, character development and story/conflict resolution. 
  3. Prepare your manuscript file. You must submit at least the first 3 chapters. This should be a Word document (double-spaced 12-pt Times New Roman is always best).
  4. Email everything to [email protected] with the subject line: Submission

It may take up to 4 weeks to hear back from us, so be sure to subscribe to our mailing list and read the Tools of the Trade blog for more hints, tips and inspiration.

"Entering into a publishing deal for the first time is a scarey thing, especially when the publisher is on the other side of the world. However, right from the start, the first tentative email, Sarah Williams has been patient, professional and gentle with me. I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to the process. I hope to have a successful ongoing relationship with her and am already working on another book. Thank you Sarah.”
