Receipt of submissions will be acknowledged by an auto-reply. Acknowledgement of receipt does not represent or imply acceptance of manuscript for publication. Our reading time varies from weeks to months, depending upon our workload and the number of submissions.

Please be patient and allow us time to respond accordingly.
25 & Y Publishing reserves the right at any time to list or limit submissions in various themes and sub-genres we feel are over represented, overdone, overplayed, or conflict with other titles we have in our pipeline for development. Such notice may appear at any time without notice. If your submission is sent to us before any such notice is published and has been accepted for review, it will be considered appropriately. We reserve the right to reject submissions for any reason at any time.
Manuscripts with extensive graphic content: sex, violence, language, and so forth may not be accepted and it will be determined on a case by case basis. We do not publish erotica. We will also not publish works that either glorify or irresponsibly exploit or represent pedophilia, rape, child abuse, mental and sexual abuse, bigotry, discrimination, and/or otherwise slander or attempt to slander individuals or organizations. We also reserve the right not to publish overtly political works regardless of their political orientation. We are in the business of publishing primarily entertainment works (nonfiction being the exception) and our focus will be on entertainment first, message second.
