Multiple Submissions

We understand the need for multiple submissions to sell your work, however we need to know this up front. Please mention this in the 'Why Pandamoon?' or the 'Query' section of our submission form.

Also, please inform us immediately if your work is contracted elsewhere so that we may remove the manuscript from consideration.

Multiple submissions from a single author are also acceptable, though we ask that you create a separate submission for each manuscript.

Previously Self-Published Titles

As a general rule, we do not accept self-published titles. However, we have made exceptions on a case-by-case basis.

The primary condition upon which we would consider exceptions is if the book (and series, if applicable) was critically well received but did not achieve significant reach in the marketplace.

The only way for us to determine whether or not it is a mutual fit is to send it to us for evaluation during our open submission windows.

Submission & Review Process

Our acquisitions team reviews every manuscript which is submitted to us. If we do not believe your book is a fit for Pandamoon, we will send you an email letting you know.

Due to the volume of submissions, review may take several months. If your manuscript is approved, our publisher will contact you to begin discussions on acquiring your manuscript for publication.

If you would like to ensure that you have properly submitted your manuscript or if it has been at least 60 days since you have submitted and you would like to request a status update, you may send an email to, for receipt verification, status update, or to answer any questions that you may have.
