Hello all~

DPP is on hiatus for 2020.

We are using this valuable pause to work with business advisors to improve our company, our marketing, and our service to our authors. During this period we will not be accepting manuscripts beyond those we have already slated for publication in 2021 and 2022.

YES, just as in (odd) years past, DPP will publish a horror anthology (Halloween Party 2021) in 2021. Submissions for that will open in fall of 2020. Check back then for guidelines and when, where, and how to submit.


Over the years DPP has gotten better and better submissions for each anthology, and more and more submissions each time. As part of our new marketing strategy we will be much more selective. Authors, make sure to bring your A-game.

Also, DPP will be narrowing its focus to a few genres… horror, crime, literary fiction/memor, and women-centric. For full-length queries, those are your best bet.


Halloween Party 2021… submissions portal will open fall of 2020.

Full-length manuscripts… submission portal will open spring 2021.

Where to find those portals? Everything you need will be right on the SUBMISSIONS page.

Can I still buy a book?

Yes, and please do. “A rising tide lifts all boats,” so when you purchase, read, and review DPP books, even one book, you make it that much easier for us to publish the next one, and the one after that.

We thank you so much for being a vital part of the second-act of our authors!

Di and Dave
