BPP admires authors who challenge our perspectives, or who offer less-common inroads to the most compelling subjects of our time. But we only accept submissions that fit within our company's mission, which is: to engage readers on topics of contemporary culture through quality writing and thoughtful design. Our press strives to deliver socially relevant works that advise, guide, inspire and amuse. We champion authors with new perspectives, strong voices and original ideas that just might change the world.

Please read our mission carefully before you query or submit. For all submissions we require a full propsoal and a minimum of three completed chapters. Your proposal needs to be substantive, well thought-out, and complete. We may be small, but our standards aren't. We are extremely selective and consider numerous factors in taking on a new title. Please do not submit your full manuscript unless we have requested it.

S & H Publishing has one goal in mind - providing quality books for our readers. We constantly search for talented writers. Our aim is to provide our authors with many of the advantages of having a publisher, while letting them retain much of the freedom of a self-published author. Just as the contemporary woman is not restricted by genre or age, talent is not restricted by distance or national borders. We pride ourselves on our international community of talented writers.

Please read our submission guidelines. We tailor our style sheet to the country of the author.

Embodying the obsolete word it was named after, Apricity aims to manifest the feeling of the warmth of the sun in the winter in all that it publishes. Established in 2015, Apricity Press was created to fill an immense void in the publishing world. While there are a myriad of presses, literary journals and magazines, many lack the ability to publish multi-genre works, especially dance works. Because of this, Apricity constructed a space where incredible literary, art and dance works could be published side by side, showcasing the tremendous connections between the forms. 

When submitting to Apricity, please follow our submission guidelines carefully!

We are first and foremost a Christian publisher. However, we do not necessarily limit our submissions to non-fiction theologically-centered works. We are looking for anything that is generally wholesome in nature, whether it is fiction or non-fiction. Our general guidelines are as follows. Please look at our genre-specific guidelines for additional information. Shorter works will be published electronically, with print an option for longer works.

Do not submit works that are rife with profanity or obscenities, and similarly do not submit anything that is counter to a Christian outlook on life. Though eLectio publishing does not limit itself to just 'worship writing' or Bible devotionals, and does like to push the boundaries of what it means to be a good Christian, it is a Christian publisher. Please keep that in mind.

We are a small, independent, not-for-profit press dedicated to publishing sublime art & literature, i.e., eccentric art & obscure texts, absurdist fiction, experimental visions, and works in translation. Our innovative Absurdist Texts & Documents series features works designed to disrupt, disorient, and smash boundaries—academic, cultural, literary, and philosophical.

Most of the queries we receive come from people who have clearly not read our books. Do not send a query without being familiar with the authors and artists we publish, i.e., read our books.

Representative Authors: 

Alphonse Allais; Tom Whalen; Opal Louis Nations; Alain Arias-Misson; Balzac; Richard Kostelanetz; Terry Southern; Samantha Memi; Suzanne Burns; Yuriy Tarnawsky.
