Markets listed on this page contain major publishing houses and small press, both print and electronic, that do not include works written by the publisher(s), editor(s), or staff.

Read the complete guidelines carefully before submitting. If in doubt as to what is wanted, contact the editor. US ($), UK (£), or EU (€) currency are used unless otherwise noted. Addresses are US unless noted otherwise. I do not knowingly list publishers who charge fees, but I must stress that entering into any contract with a book publisher can be risky. There are unscrupulous persons out there who WILL take advantage of you. Read any contract carefully and never pay for any publishing service unless you are clear that the deal is with a reputable vanity press and know exactly what they will do (and what they charge) to edit, set-up, publish, and market your work. All authors, new ones especially, are encouraged to check with a literary attorney or agent before signing any publishing deal.

These listings are provided in good faith with the belief the info is correct, but Ralan.com accepts no responsibility for any errors or omissions in them. Contact with any editor or publisher is at the contributor's own risk. Ralan.com encourages all potential contributors to do a web search of the editor's and/or publisher's name before submitting to them. Each visitor assumes all risk associated with the use or misuse of the information here.
