We are particularly interested in novellas and series.

We are actively seeking materials featuring and/or written by marginalized and underrepresented voices. Misti Media takes diversity, equity and inclusion very seriously and has this as a core tenet of our publishing house. This includes the communities of (but not limited to): indigenous nations, African-American/Black, Latino/a, LGBTQIA+, neurodiverse and accessibility.

Submissions should include a short description, the manuscript in its entirety (Word format), and a marketing plan to give us a better idea of your social media presence and following. If you need help, we recommend you visit as a starting point.

We typically do not accept previously self-published works unless the author has a significant backlist and following.
