Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I purchase Leo books?
Books from Leo Publishing can be purchased directly from the publisher, through Ingram Distributors, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com and other commercial venues such as independent bookstores.
Does Leo Publishing charge a fee to publish my manuscript?
No, you pay nothing. We are a royalty paying publisher, and because of this, we are very selective about who we will publish.
Does Leo Publishing pay an advance at the time of contract?
No, we are a small press and do not pay an advance. However, we do pay royalties at a highly competitive rate.
How long does it take to get an answer on a submission?
We will try and let you know our decision three to six months after you submit. We will try to answer everyone by e-mail including those whose work is rejected, but we cannot guarantee this. If we like what we see, we’ll ask you for the entire manuscript.
Do I need to be represented by an agent?
No, you do not. You can submit directly to us.
Is there any genre that you don’t accept?
We do not want excessive violence, pornography, or works that are exclusively of erotica.
