How to submit your manuscript:
To submit, go to and follow the instructions to fill out the form and upload your manuscript.

Due to time constraints, we will not be able to respond to every query. If you do not receive a response after three months, unfortunately that means your story is not right for us this time.
Why is Harper Voyager allowing unagented submissions for two weeks and then only publishing ebooks?
The growth of eReaders and e-books have created an exciting new opportunity that allows us to begin increasing the number and diversity of our speculative fiction list. And speculative fiction readers are the most savvy early adopters so we’re keen to provide our readers with the best ebooks possible.

Harper Voyager plans to release one book a month. Initially the books will be published as ebooks but if one does well a print copy will be issued.

Good luck!

  1. While I'm sure many authors are going to "jump" at this I ask you to consider that the playing field in the digital world is pretty level for traditional and self. Just keep in mind you're going to be trading a 70% royalty for 17.5% royalty. And self are selling comparably (in numbers) to traditional in this space...50% of the Amazon Epic Fantasy list is self-published, the other 50% is traditional.

    Just something to consider.
