Open Books / Open Books Academic strives to publish high-quality fiction and nonfiction. We like to see literary and contemporary fiction and serious, scholarly nonfiction. We love cutting-edge, out-of-this-world, brainy fiction and political, social, ecological and controversial non-fiction. We are generally not interested in romance, horror or paranormal unless it has a very original or literary spin, nor are we interested in pop nonfiction such as self-help, diet books or pseudo psychology. Memoirs and travel documentaries are welcome.
For fiction submissions, please include a cover letter with your contact information, a one-page synopsis, an author bio, the first three chapters of your manuscript and a basic author marketing strategy. Please submit .doc or .docx documents; PDF documents are discouraged unless absolutely necessary to showcase the work.
For nonfiction submissions, please include a cover letter with your contact information, a detailed outline of your project, an author bio, a sample of your writing and a basic author marketing strategy.
A one-page query is acceptable and even encouraged before submitting if you're not certain your book is a good fit with Open Books or Open Books Academic.
We only accept submissions and queries by email at submissions(at)open-bks(dot)com. If possible, please submit .doc or .docx documents; PDF documents are discouraged unless absolutely necessary to showcase the work. Please address all queries and submissions to David Ross. We try to respond to all submissions and queries within one month.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to read and consider your work.
