Note: Gossamer Publishing is closed to further submissions, for the time being. We may reopen the submission form at a later date in the future.
We publish to the Apple iBookstore / iTunes, in all 32 stores worldwide. We report sales weekly, and we pay monthly, only one month in arrears (currently via Paypal, but that may soon change).
You hold the rights to your book and are free to publish it elsewhere.
We are not a vanity publisher. Upon final acceptance, your book will be assigned an ISBN, and we will create a cover–if you do not already have one. (click here for a sample of covers we have created). It will be available for sale through our site and sold at the Apple iBookstore / iTunes. We will also accept submissions from those who already have an ISBN and/or cover available for use.
We are currently closed to erotica submissions. Romance and Women’s Fiction are given primary consideration. We make rare concessions for other genres.
We will get back to you about your submission in anywhere from one to five days. After acceptance, we will upload your book to the Apple store within two business days. Apple then has up to ten business days to review your book for sale in their store. Apple has recently changed their approval process, and wait times are generally less than ten business days. When they will post your manuscript is questionable . Some books may go live immediately, per Apple’s determination.
We will keep you informed of your book’s approval status.
Scroll down for the submission form. If you have questions prior to submission, please fill out the contact form and we get back to you within two business days.
