HOW TO SUBMIT

Two sample chapters, a synopsis – that’s all we require!

We’ve streamlined our submissions process so that your work can be read directly by our editors. Send an email to one of our editors below depending on the genre you’re writing in. Please send only one submission at a time to one address – we assure you our editors will read your submission and write back to you.

For Romance and Erotica, write to Trisha at trisha@juggernaut.in

For Non-fiction, History, Politics and Current Affairs, write to Parth at parth@juggernaut.in

For Crime, Thrillers and Short Stories, write to Janani at janani@juggernaut.in

For Fantasy and Science Fiction and Literary Fiction, write to Tarini at tarini@juggernaut.in

For Hindi submissions, write to Renu at renu@juggernaut.in

QUESTIONS? 

We are here to help you get published.

Why have you started this new process? It was simpler with just one email earlier!

Just as readers have different tastes, editors too have tastes in what they read and commission, and we want to ensure your submission reaches its right editor.

I sent my submission to the earlier ID. What now?

Don’t worry – your submission will still be read by one of our editors. If you want to reassure yourself, you can resend the submission to the editor in-charge of your genre.

How does your submission process work?

We have six in-house commissioning editors who read submissions; we also have three external readers with an eclectic taste in books. If any of the three like something they read, they immediately pass it on to the commissioning editors, who then take a call on the submission.

How long does it take for you guys to reply? I keep seeing all these comments about you guys taking too long!

We know, we know! This is exactly why we’ve started this new process: to ensure your work is being read by the right editor, and quickly! But our editors are also working on the books they’ve already signed up, and they want to read each of your submission, which is why we take time to respond. We receive more than 100 submissions a week – yes! – so we try to respond to all submissions within three months. In most cases, we respond much, much earlier than that!

Why do you reject a manuscript?

Primarily, for two reasons – either the plot (if nonfiction, the proposal) wasn’t too strong for us (even if the writing is good), or the writing needs more work. Yes, publishing is a subjective choice, but most editors look for these two elements in every submission they read. There are times when a manuscript is well written, but the plot seems to be missing that extra element that makes the work stand out and hold an editor’s attention. And if it doesn’t, sadly, we say no!

But does that mean my work is bad?

Not at all! Remember J.K. Rowling – most publishers rejected her first book, and how they regretted that decision!

    Do you publish children’s stories and short stories for adults? I have three children’s stories ready. I’m a published author of one children’s book ( Orient Black swan, 2006)and one novel ( Jaico, 2012 ). Thanks.

      hi Diti, we’re not looking for children’s stories at the moment; however, please send in your short stories for adults to the respective editors according to the genre. Best,

    Hi,
    Do I need to submit the first two chapters or any two chapters as sample chapters?
    Also, I have two manuscripts. One is romance and the other is fantasy. Can I submit both to the respective editors simultaneously?

    • Team Juggernaut / July 4, 2016 at 12:15 pm /Reply

      hi Preeti, you can submit any two chapters. also, you can send the two manuscripts to the respective editors simultaneously.

    Hi, Team Juggernaut. Are you interested only in Indian subjects? I have a short story ready (very short, only 8000 words) set during the Trojan War. It’s a thriller, literary fiction. Is that too outlandish for you?

    I’m a writer with Red Ink Literary Agency, by the way. My fiction thriller novel is due to be published in September.

    Looking forward to hear from you. Adios, Sharon

    • Team Juggernaut / July 8, 2016 at 4:21 pm /Reply

      hi Sharon, thanks for writing to us. not outlandish at all :) you can send Sivapriya your story at sivapriya@juggernaut.in
      best,

    Hello, please tell me if you are inclined towards non-fiction and poetry too. Also, in non-fiction, would you consider books on Hotels, PR and a Handbook for Professionals??

    Cheers.

    • Team Juggernaut / July 9, 2016 at 10:33 am /Reply

      hi Aruna, thanks for writing — currently, we’re more inclined towards prose than poetry. we would consider books on the subjects you’ve mentioned; please write to priya@juggernaut.in
      best!

    Dear Juggernaut

    I have a YA fiction novel, or young adult. You could say around 14-16 years of age. That’s the audience but it can be enjoyed by all ages in my view. Can you please tell me to whom I should send my book and whether Juggernaut publishes such books?

    • Team Juggernaut / July 27, 2016 at 12:12 pm /Reply

      Dear Vikas, thanks for writing. we are not currently looking at strictly YA writing. however, if your book falls under fantasy, you can write to Indra at indra@juggernaut.in
      best,

    I’m working on an MS that’s kind of a fusion: contemporary post-apocalyptic young adult sci-fi thriller. My target word count is about 80-82K words. To which email address am I supposed to mail the file when I’m done with?

    • Team Juggernaut / August 1, 2016 at 10:20 am /Reply

      hi Devansh, you can send the manuscript to indra@juggernaut.in.
      Best,

    I am a teenage first time writer writing for under 12’s and my manuscript is ready. Genre : Adventure, Mystery & Thriller. Would you consider a young writer like me ?

    • Team Juggernaut / August 3, 2016 at 10:30 am /Reply

      hey Ray, sure! why don’t you send it to books@juggernaut.in, and one of our editors will go through it and write back to you very soon!

    Hi Juggurnaut

    I am writing a mystery-crime story. It is a thriller and falls in this genre. Whom should I send the chapters to?

  9. Ray (Hazem) / August 10, 2016 at 9:13 am /Reply

    Hi there again,

    I sent the Sample Chapters + Synopsis to books@juggernaut.in but got an automated response. So I sent it to Indra. Hope you received it ! Thanks again for the encouragement.

  10. Vikas Joshi / August 12, 2016 at 11:18 pm /Reply

    Hi Juggurnaut

    How long do you take to get back to the writer if they like your first two chapters and synopsis? And how do you take to get back for the total manuscript?

    • Team Juggernaut / August 16, 2016 at 10:11 am /Reply

      hi Vikas, our editors try to respond to all submissions within six weeks.

    Hi,

    Would you consider reviewing my Anthology of poetry on existentialism and spirituality for publication?

    Thanks
