7 Publishers Accepting Manuscripts

You’ve written a book and now you need to find a publisher.

This can be an arduous task, but like any big project, it can be made easier by breaking it down into smaller tasks.

Where to Start

My best advice for any author looking for a publisher is to first start with the market guide books available. These books are updated yearly.

Many of these guides are available at your local library in the reference department for the most recent issue. Older issues are often available for check out. If your library doesn’t have the book, request they buy it.

What’s Next?

Once you’ve picked several publishers that publish the kind of book you’ve written…

  • Visit their website and educate yourself about the company
  • Study their catalog. If you’re writing non-fiction, look to see if they’ve recently published books on your topic. If they have, they may not be interested in another one.
  • Thoroughly read and follow their guidelines
  • Submit your manuscript according to their guidelines

10 Trade Journals Accepting Submissions

As I’ve said many times before, writing for periodicals is a terrific way to hone your writing skills and earn money as you do it. If you’ve never considered this, stop and read “Why Write for Periodicals?” by the prolific writer Ava Pennington.

Today I’m featuring trade journals, publications that focus on a specific occupation or industry. Many of us who are now writers didn’t start our work lives as writers. I’m sure you have work experience you can put to good use by writing for trade journals in your field. [Read more…]
