So, you're interested in having your comic or novel published? Great! Here are a few answers to common questions about our publishing process:
1. Where can I find out what anthologies are open for submission?
Glad you asked, click the Anthologies link above.
2. What kinds of products do you publish?
We primarily publish books and comics featuring furry (anthropomorphic) characters. In addition to comics, we also publish a range of art books.
3. What information should my initial contact include?
The more information you provide in your initial e-mail, the faster we will be able to review it. Here is some information you can provide which will help us evaluate your submission:
* Product Type (Comic, novel, etc)
Please also include sample art from your project and/or a link where we can view your material online. For written works, please upload your full manuscript using the form below.
4. Submission Tips for Comics and Magazines
* Page Size Ratio:
* Cover Size:
* File Types:
* File Resolution:
5. Novel and novella submissions
Our submission "slush" pile for written works is currently very backlogged. Due to our small staff and available time we are not actively seeking new submissions for novels or novellas at this time. If you wish to submit a short story, please check the Anthology Submissions tab above to see if any of our anthologies are currently open for submission.
6. Royalty Payments
We pay our authors and artists royalty payments quarterly. Royalties are calculated on a per unit basis, the amount per unit sold depends on the retail price, cost to produce, type of product and method of sale (direct sale from FurPlanet.com versus through a distributor, for example). Specific royalty amounts will be discussed via e-mail once the requested information under 3. above is provided.
Payments will be sent out by the end of the month following the close of the quarter so our royalty payment due dates are:
7. Content Guidelines
There are some things we will not be interested in publishing no matter how well drawn or written they are. This lists includes, but is not limited to:
* Any work containing copyrighted characters
If you are in doubt whether your work falls into one of these categories please feel free to run it by us before submitting your work and we'll let you know whether it's something we would consider publishing or not.
NOTE: Please note that FurPlanet is operated by two people who both also have full-time day jobs. We receive a lot of e-mail from customers, artists and prospective clients. Please allow sufficient time for us to read your e-mail, evaluate the information and get back to you. Please allow at least a month for us to respond to inquiries about comics and art books.
As we are not currently reviewing novel and novella submissions there is no set timeframe for a response on those inquiries. Thank you.
