Lamplighter Submission Information

We are looking for a range of new material from cozy mysteries with a fresh new edge to fast-paced suspense thrillers told from vibrant, unusual angles.

A successful manuscript will engage the reader from the opening sentence and pick up the interest from there. In addition, it must have entertaining characters, a novel setting, a distinct objective for the protagonist and ample twists to keep our readers guessing. Our readers are modern, sharp and well-informed. Please give us characters with gritty, real lives while presenting themes fit for a wide variety of readers. Don’t limit your readership by constraining your worldview to narrow margins.

Lamplighter Mysteries and Suspense accepts manuscripts from agents and authors we have met face-to-face at writer’s conferences. Please see Iron Steam Media's general submission page before submitting a proposal  at
