Have you tried and failed to find a literary agent? Grown tired of pitch sessions and query letters?

The Big Book of Small Presses and Independent Publishers lists over 350 small presses, book contests, university presses, and independent publishers that take "unagented" submissions.

This book is for you if you have:

  • finished writing your book;
  • given up on finding an agent;
  • waiting months for an agent to call you back;
  • longed for an editor to validate your creativity
  • recoiled at the thought of self-publishing.

In this essential reference, you'll discover publishers for romance, women's fiction, historical fiction, sci fi, fantasy, poetry, literary fiction, history, self-help, spirituality, politics, sports, thrillers, Christian fiction, young adult fiction, and children's books. Best of all, the publishers in this book aren't vanity presses. They don't charge a fee to consider your manuscript. If they like your story, they will proofread your book, create a stunning cover, and upload your book into the online bookstores. Finally, when people ask where they can buy your book, you'll have an answer.
