For Authors

What We Are Looking For

Books with that challenge and inspire. At Circle of Slayers, we believe that young readers deserve elevated stories. Stories that open up new worlds, without speaking down to them. We are looking for all genres of Middle Grade fiction. Your message can be inspiring, moving, sad, or make people change the way they view others around them. We’d love to take a look at your work, as long as it is  complete and between 55,000 and 120,000 words and has been thoroughly edited and polished. While Circle of Slayers will consider self-published works, we prefer submissions with fresh content.

Submission Guidelines

Send the following to publisher@argate.net:


  • Query letter
  • First three chapters of manuscript (pasted in body of email)
  • A couple sentences about the message your book contains
  • Short Author Bio or Experience
  • Contact Information

**We do not open attachments. All information must be pasted in the body of your email.**


Please allow us eight to twelve weeks to review your query and get back with you. We will respond to all submissions.

Our Promise

We believe in a long term relationship between the author and the publisher and the importance of growing our brands together. We craft detailed marketing plans for each of our authors, work hard toward scheduling book signings, and have partnered up with a hard-hitting distributor, publicity firm, and reviewers.

We promise to provide professional editing and proofreading, top-notch cover art and interior design, marketing sessions, competitive royalty rates, and much more.
