Frequently Asked Questions.

1. How do I submit my work to AOS?

Visit our submissions page by clicking the submissions button in the top right corner of our website. Then, just fill out the submissions form, and hit submit!

When you hit submit, we've received your work, even if a confirmation bubble does not appear. You should expect a reply within 2-4 weeks if we are interested in seeing more of your piece.

2. Is AOS a traditional publishing house? 

AOS is in fact a hybrid publisher, which means that we employ a rigorous and selective editing process, as you would expect from a traditional press, but we are independent and do not receive funding from any outside organizations. As such, in most cases our authors share the costs of publication with us. The costs will vary based on the length and type of manuscript, and on the work required to bring the work up to our publishing standard. 

We do things a little differently from the other guys, focusing our efforts on digital marketing and an expanding online presence. We also offer a highly collaborative experience for our authors, one that ensures our authors are happy with the final product we take to market.

3. Which genres is AOS interested in? 

AOS publishes novels, short stories, non-fiction, and poetry. We are looking for quality works, and are less concerned about the genre as we are about the impact of the writing.

4. Do I need an agent to submit? 

No, you do not. AOS accepts submissions directly from authors. Visit our submissions page for more information.
