Business Resources for Authors

Publishers

Welcome to our growing resource list of publishing houses. We’ve included the most basic information to get your started: publisher name, format(s) and genre(s) they publish, and a link to their submission guidelines.

For more in-depth research of publishers, we recommend Publisher’s Marketplace ($20/month fee to access their full database of publishers and deals) and Writers Market ($6/month fee for full access). Also, Preditors and Editors is a good independent resource that gathers feedback on publishers, editors and agents. *Please Note: publishers are listed here for informational purposes only. We neither endorse nor recommend any particular publisher. Always research a publisher thoroughly before submitting to them and/or signing a contract with them.
