Book Editors and Book Publishers: Sports and Recreation Books

Robert Kurson's adventure story, Shadow Divers, stayed on the bestseller lists for a long time. In addition, it earned $1.5 million for the movie rights.

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.

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 sports and recreation books. 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.
