About us

The folks at Muddy Paw Press have gathered to accomplish a singular and important goal: find, edit, and publish striking fiction from authors all across the world.

To us, being a small press means being fiercely devoted to our authors. It means we commit a tremendous amount of time to each acquisition, and that we're allies before we're editors or publishers. To that end, our royalties are among the highest in the world at a clean 50% cut. It seems plain to us that authors deserve far more than the paltry 8% cuts some major publishing houses offer.

Our first projects are immensely important to us. We're actively building a list of titles to debut in 2022 and 2023. We're seeking all genres, but are especially interested in Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror. 

What about American Dread?  We accept submissions for the anthology all year long and publish around October of each year.
