Book Publishers To Query

3 BOOK PUBLISHERS TO TRY IN 2013 lists hundreds of book publishers for writers of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, writing for children, and more. Here are three open to submissions:

  • Small Beer Press accepts submissions by post only. As opposed to submitting the entire manuscript, the editors request writers submit a query and the first 10 pages of the manuscript. This press specializes in fiction, both short story collections and novels.                                                                                                                               
  • TOR Books specializes in science fiction and fantasy-with experience in a few other fiction categories as well. Prospective authors should put together a submission package that includes a query letter, 3 sample chapters (or 40-60 pages), a synopsis (3-10 pages), and an SASE.
  • Allworth Press publishes business and self-help information for the general public and creative professionals. Prospective authors should submit a book proposal that includes a query letter, synopsis (1-2 pages), annotated chapter outline, market analysis, sample chapter (or two), bio, and SASE.
