Call for submissions

Mocha Memoirs Press is seeking submissions for our official launch in January 2011 and for early spring 2011.

Mocha Memoirs Press, LLC is a new electronic publishing company that seeks to add new flavors to the realms of speculative fiction and romance. Our primary website will go live January 2011, but we’re actively seeking submissions to add to our catalog before the launch. We’re inviting authors to submit works of 8k and higher for possible publication in our catalog.

Mocha Memoirs Press, LLC wants to see titles that include excellent writing, superior storytelling, and fantastic creativity. We want our readers to lose themselves in the worlds the authors have created, and to care about the characters populating those worlds. Moreover, we’d like to see ethnic diversity in stories as well.

We’re currently looking for titles in the following genres: horror, science fiction, fantasy, and romance. We’re most excited about seeing stories in the subgenres of cyberpunk, steampunk, near-future sf, and space opera.

We do publish paranormal romance, science fiction romance, fantasy romance, and dark fantasy romance. We’d like to see submissions in these areas as well. Our interracial romance titles have been very successful, so feel free submit those also.

Please keep in mind that although a new company, we're by no means accepting every submission or submissions that are poorly edited, offensive, crude, or sloppy. Please only submit your absolute best work. As a publisher, we'll make sure you get the best from us in return. We have over 12 years of electronic publishing experience; so please don't submit low quality or unprofessional work.

To submit your work to us, submit a cover letter, completed novel and synopsis/marketing history to mochamemoirspress (at) Remove the spaces and use the @ symbol in place of (at).

Thank you.
