THE PULP AND MYSTERY SHELF welcomes submissions from authors and booksellers of classic and contemporary mystery works of all classifications wanting to be featured on Mondays and Wednesdays. Fridays will be featuring New and Classic Pulp, along with genres rooted in Pulp tradition (even if not presented in Pulp form) such as SF, fantasy, suspense, and thrillers. The site is also open to considering true crime, and similar topics that may be of interest to this readership; these will be scrutinized on a case by case basis.
Fro authors, if your work is submitted, but not considered a fit for this site, you may still be invited to appear at sister site INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS, which is an all-genre site. INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS has not traditionally featured bookstores since its inception in 2012, but the administrator would be open to changing that policy.
Please see which section applies to you below and send all items to shannon.muir (at) outlook.com. NOTE REGARDING GIVEAWAYS: IF YOU WISH TO INCLUDE A GIVEAWAY, COMMENT-BASED GIVEAWAYS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED AS THE ADMINISTRATOR WORKS FULL-TIME AND THEREFORE MUST MODERATE COMMENTS TO MANAGE SPAM; MOST GIVEAWAYS ARE THROUGH SERVICES LIKE RAFFLECOPTER. THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING.
