Thank you for your interest in eTreasures Publishing! We are not a vanity or self-publishing site. Rather, we are a non-subsidy, royalty paying publishing house that does not charge the author for reviewing, editing, cover art (see note on illustrations above), formatting, promotional work, etc. We offer a contract, pay royalties, and publish eBooks and print (POD) books. Various formats of eBooks are available through distribution at: 

 

  • Amazon (Kindle)
  • Barnes & Noble (Nook)
  • Smashwords (epub and other formats)

We are seeking well-written, quality original manuscripts that thrill, enchant, delight or scare from new and seasoned writers. Simultaneous submissions, on fulls, will be accepted provided you inform us if another publisher is considering your work. 

A note on print. We recognize that for many authors, print is highly desired so we offer that on fiction over 60,000 words (and of course for children’s and picture books) within 1-2 months after digital book release. However, please note that this is print-on-demand (POD) which means no print run, no bookstores and no books printed until ordered.

At this time, we do not pay advances.

Fiction Genres

While we accept most genres, we are especially interested in:

  • Romance (all subgenres)
  • Children’s
  • Fantasy
  • Inspirational
  • New Adult
  • Picture books
  • Science Fiction
  • Young Adult 

Please note, for romance, we are seeking heat levels of sensual to sweet only and prefer behind-the-door encounters. We will not accept any sexual encounters with characters under the age of 18. Romance MUST have a HEA (happily-ever-after). 

Other genres we are interested in:

  • Action-Adventure
  • Horror
  • Humor
  • Historical
  • Mystery / Thriller
  • Non-Fiction (query first, no memoirs)
  • Paranormal
  • Poetry Collections 

eTreasures Publishing is a family friendly publisher. We will NOT consider any work containing any of the following:

  • Pedophilia
  • Rape (villains may rape, but should occur off stage)
  • Incest (in any form)
  • Cruelty to animals
  • Racial intolerance
  • Bestiality
  • Necrophilia
  • Erotica
  • Graphic Violence
  • GLBT, multiple partners, BDSM or other alternative lifestyles.
  • Profanity – while some swearing is understood, we prefer manuscripts with as few swear words as possible and are firm on not using the Lord’s name in vain 

We will also NOT accept:

  • Fan Fiction
  • Literary fiction
  • Memoirs 

Attention self-published authors: You MUST have removed or discontinued the sale of your book before you submit. If your self-published book is still available (we will check), your submission will be deleted without being read. 

Manuscript Lengths

We are accepting manuscripts of 10,000 to 100,000 in length unless children’s, picture books or poetry (okay under 10,000). While we may consider books over 100,000, query first as our acceptance depends on genre and a review of submitted work. Our experience has shown that many books over 100,000 need tightening.š
