Small Commercial Publishers
Discouraged by the daunting task of seeking publication with a major publishing house, but not ready to resort to self-publishing? Many small commercial publishers are open to new writers, accept unagented submissions, work with the author on marketing, and pay real royalties … without charging authors anything to print their books.
Here are some I can personally recommend:
Be sure to check and follow the publisher’s writers’ guidelines before submitting.
Also, before submitting anything to any publisher (commercial or subsidy), check with Preditors & Editors.
If you know of some small commercial publishers that are reputable, please let me know so I can add them to my list.
