Our Submission Policy
You have a story to tell. You've typed the words, The End. It's finally
time to share it with the world. Now what?
Finding a publisher to accept your manuscript for publication can be
a scary and daunting task. Finding a publisher that loves your story
as much as you do . . . rare. But, like a diamond in the rough, they do
First, and foremost, believe in yourself, and believe in your story.
Secondly, do your part as a writer. Never submit a first draft to any publisher. Write, edit, and write some more.
Edit again, rewrite and polish. Then follow the publisher's submission policies before submitting. Lastly, never...never...
did we say, never, pay a publisher to publish your story.
Efi Loo Publishing's Delicatessen of Dreams
Here at Efi Loo Publishing, we have an eclectic appetite for tales. We enjoy devouring a good who-done-it, tales that
scare, a story that makes us laugh, a story that makes us cry, and short stories that capture the imagination of the
young at heart; no matter their age.
Our Current Menu
Currently, we are accepting manuscripts in the following genres for our 2018 publications: children's short stories.
What We are Hungry For
Stories that capture the beautiful innocence of a child, and their bewilderment of the stars. What if you could travel
beyond the clouds, stars and moon, what magical world would you find? Two stories will be selected for our growing
series, Bedtime Stories on the Go!. Dream it. Write it. Live it. All good things must come to an end; therefore, the
