Curious as to what we are looking for? Well, here are a few things we'd love to see!

Midnight Tide Publishing is hunting for gritty, dark, and unique stories in YA-Adult. Something that explores the darker aspects of life and overcoming them. A tale of enemies to lovers, a unique retelling of a fairytale no one has ever heard of.

A supernatural/paranormal urban fantasy that highlights a lesser-known topic than the typical. Have a space opera that explores another planet? We want it! Do you have a time-traveling story that involves high stakes and romance? Send it our way!

We'd love to see #OWNVOICES and diverse fiction as well. A story that explores disability in a different time period or even world, show us all the diverse perspectives that are out there!

We hope to hear from you!
