Cozy House Press

Cozy House Press is on the prowl for contemporary cozies, paranormal cozies, and humorous romantic mysteries anywhere from 60,000 – 80,000 words that will keep us guessing long into the night.

We LOVE novels with independent, funny, and strong female sleuths, small cozy towns with interesting and quirky characters, clever mysteries with fun plots, and handsome heroes who challenge our sleuths. We will accept all ages of sleuth, young (16+), all the way up to retirement age. We’re more concerned about awesome characters than we are age!

We would love to hear from fresh voices who have original takes on tried & true tropes, and fun twists on the genre we accept.

We especially love hobby and craft mysteries and cozies with a pet (or two!).

We do not accept thrillers or noir mysteries. But if you’ve written a cozy noir with a sassy and strong character and a fantastic cast of down on their luck townsfolk, maybe hit us up with a sample.

Remember, NO graphic sex, NO gore, NO profanity. These are cozies. All murders should be shown off the page. Any romantic thread must be closed-door with minimal build-up.

If any of these requirements fit the book you’ve written, please send us a query telling us about your book, the word count, and include the first three chapters (no more than 6,000 words) for us to read. We strive to answer every query, but please give us ample time (4-6 weeks) to get through it.

If you have a question about our submission process and whether your project will fit, please reach out to us at submissions@cozyhousepress.com.
