PM Press Submission Call @PMPress1 @damppebbles #promo #amwriting

Calling all writers looking to be published!! New imprint of Holland House Books, PM Press is looking for your submission!!!! Interested? Keep reading!

The Call

We are looking for most types of crime and thriller fiction, from the classic English whodunit through to police procedurals, or classic noir through to mind-bending psychological thrillers. Maybe you want to introduce us to a dystopian future. We want well-written, satisfying work – a good twist and convincing characters are the ways to our hearts. It may be cosy and comfortable or dark and disturbing… or something completely different.

If you have a completed novel or novella which you believe may fit, then send us:

  1. The first fifty pages of your work.
  2. A synopsis of your work (maximum two pages).
  3. A covering letter with a brief overview – we do NOT need you to do a brilliant ‘pitch’ or the kind of blurb which would go on the back of the book. The basic story, main character(s) and the general themes is all we need.

These documents should be Word Documents, size 12 in a standard font, with a line spacing of 1.5.

Please email us at and address them to the Editor Phaidra Robinson.”
