What we are looking for:

Well-written YA (young adult) or NA (new adult) novels that are between 50,000 and 110,000 words. While we accept stand-alone books, our ideal submission would be the first two books in a series or a novel with a novella that is a prequel to the novel. We are looking for something unique and breathtaking. We are seeking authors who are 18 or older and ready to work hard to build their author brand and to actively market their books alongside us. Genres that we are specifically seeking include the following: horror, mystery, witches, fortune teller, psychic, magician, historical, escapism. When you submit to Clean Teen Publishing, your title may also be considered for one of our other imprints if we feel that it may be a better fit elsewhere. This includes our new digital-first imprint— CTP Pulse.

How to submit:

Please send the following to: Submissions@CleanTeenPublishing.com

**Please note that we do not accept attachments!**

  • A brief synopsis of your book in two paragraphs or less, your word count, and any previous publishing accomplishments.

For Self-published Works: We will only consider previously self-published work if your submission includes a new book in the series. For example: Book 1 could have been self-published, but now you have Book 2 completed and you would like to submit them as a series to our publishing house. Please include information in your submission of when you first released book one in your series, your average monthly sales or downloads, and why you are looking to move from self-published to our Indie publishing house.
