Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of books do you publish?

Riddle Brook Publishing is interested in narrative non-fiction. We enjoy stories by people and about people, written with an engaging voice and driven by the author’s personal experiences.

I have several previous publications. Am I still able to submit my work to you?

While we are interested in writers just starting out, it is fine if you have a few previous credits. We do, however, feel strongly that our mission is to encourage the NEW writer.

What arrangements do you have with your authors?

Riddle Brook Publishing works closely with authors to shape the final work. In addition, when possible, we try to provide a small advance against royalties. Most importantly, authors retain their own copyrights.

I’d like to send my entire manuscript, but there is no “upload file” option on your submissions page. How do I do that?

Initial queries cannot include attachments. You may include proposal information and sample chapters as part of your submission form and, if we are interested, we will respond to you directly and request manuscript files. Also, note that we only accept electronic submissions.

Are there particular types of books that you do not publish?

We do not publish books for children, poetry, academic material, nor fiction of any kind. We also do not publish non-standard sizes nor hardbound books.
