Call for Manuscripts from Killer Reads

Crime or thriller writer? Is your manuscript complete? Take a look at Killer Reads, the new digital crime and thriller imprint from HarperCollins.

Here’s what they’re looking for:

We are on the lookout for commercial crime and thrillers ranging from police procedurals, to psychological thrillers, to high-concept thrillers and beyond.

We are looking for fantastic writing that hooks us, making us want to turn the page and find out what happens next; and characters that stay with us long after we finish reading. We want to feel moved, compelled, shocked, and intrigued.
