Book Publishers: First Novels
Book Editors: Debut Novels

Beginning novelists often type phrases like book publisher, novel editor, novel publishers, find a book publisher, book publishers, find a novel publisher, first novels, editing novels, book publishing, first novel publishers, editors of novels, how do I find a publisher for my novel, first novel editors, writing novels, novel writing, or new novel publishers into search engines like Google, Yahoo, or Microsoft Live. What comes up when you do that? Vanity or POD publishers all over the first page, all promising to publish your first novel fast, as long as you pay them. Well, this list is different.

These book editors listed below work for real book publishers, and they have bought first novels from new authors within the past two years. And they paid the author for the rights! If you're looking for a real book publisher for your novel (not a POD publisher, vanity publisher, subsidy publisher, or other pay-for-it publisher), you have found the right place.

For success stories of first-time novelists, click here.

A successful novel should interrupt the reader’s life, make him or her miss appointments, skip meals, forget to walk the dog. - Stephen King

All 400+ book editors listed below have, at least once, bought the rights to first novels by unknown novelists or nonfiction writers (editors who we know have bought more than one first novel are bolded larger). Most editors do not accept unsolicited manuscripts. They prefer to deal with agents. For a list of 400 agents who have handled debut novels, see the ordering information below for the list of literary agents. Do not submit a novel to a book publisher without first finding out what kind of novels they publish.

Note: I guarantee that there have been changes in the listing below since I first developed it. Use this list only as a guide to the publishers specializing in short story collections and novels. Don't spend a lot of time or money contacting these publishers en masse. Focus on one or two at a time and write them a great query letter.

Good news for first time novelists! As Editorial Director for Spinsters Ink, I chose The Elegant Gathering of White Snows by Kris Radish as my first book for our newly acquired company. I was halfway through the manuscript and was so very excited by this book that I called Kris and asked her if it was a multiple submission. It was not. I told her I was halfway through it and that I wanted it! Her reply was, “But you're only halfway through it!” Nevermind.

Long story short: we published the book in July. It made the pick for Small Press Review Sept/Oct., BookSense 76 pick for Nov./Dec., and Publishers Weekly pick in December. It caught the eye of a book buyer for BookWorks in Albuquerque, Susan Wasson, who put it in the hands of every publisher's rep she could find. The book is phenomenal and has become a favorite of book clubs. Now the best news! We have sold world rights to Bantam/Dell! They will come out with the trade paperback in June.

So much for first time novelists! Kris did have two nonfiction books in her bag and she is a professional journalist, so her credentials are there. We loved the book and marketed it with all our power. It is often the small publishers that stick their necks out, take the plunge, and only occasionally come up with the prize! This is the first time in Spinsters Ink 25-year history that such a sale has been made. Let's hear it for small book publishers!

Publishers need book proposals

Learn how to submit to book publishers before sending them anything. Do not send an entire manuscript. Send a query letter or book proposal.

Read one of the books: Michael Larson's How to Write a Book Proposal, Jeff Herman's Write the Perfect Book Proposal, W. Terry Whalin's Book Proposals That Sell: 21 Secrets to Speed Your Success, or Stephen Mettee's The Fast-Track Course on How to Write a Non-Fiction Book Proposal.

Thanks for all your help and for your 1001 Ways to Market Your Books.” — Love, Kisses, and Trailer Park Wishes, Ruby Ann Boxcar
