Crazy Cozy Stories

Crazy Cozy Stories is an independent publisher of cozy mysteries and quiet horror. Crazy Cozy Stories is dedicated to producing suspenseful, chilling, yet heart warming detective literature from new authors.

Crazy Cozy Stories is interested in cozy mysteries and quiet horror novelettes, novellas, and novels between 7,500 and 50,000 words. Novelettes should be between 7,500 - 15,000 words, novellas should be between 15,000 - 25,000 words, and novels should be between 25,000 - 50,000. We will consider longer stories if you query us first.

We are looking for stories that embody the ideal of the cozy genre. One important aspect of any work of "cozy" literature is the absence of violence, gore, sex, or other potentially offensive elements of a similar nature. Although a cozy story can involve murder, ghosts, and suspense it should do so in a tasteful manner. We pay our writers 70% of all profits made from both e-book and print sales on their specific work.

We also strive to help promote and spotlight authors and publishers who are already established in the market through social media, news posts, and book reviews.
