Submission Guidelines

We welcome submissions from both new and previously published authors, no agent required.

Before submitting your manuscript, please check that your book meets our publishing portfolio. We publish genre fiction and related non-fiction books. We do not publish poetry or children’s books.

At Second Chances Verlag, we focus on completing series that were discontinued by their previous German publisher, and on publishing original works that complement our portfolio and appeal to the same readership. We also focus on working closely with our authors, and on reader-oriented and creative marketing.

We welcome unique and fresh stories with a diverse cast.

  • Adam Sass
  • A.E. Wasp

  • Kristen Ciccarelli
  • Louisa Masters
