Riddle Brook Publishing LLC
From the Publisher
Each year, thousands of aspiring writers submit their works to agents and publishers, only to be told that there’s no room for the “new.” At Riddle Brook Publishing, we actively seek out the “new.”
We are looking for beginning writers from New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine and Massachusetts.
If you are a writer of narrative non-fiction and have an interesting story told with an interesting voice, then we’re here to encourage and support you. Riddle Brook Publishing was founded in 2011 with a very specific mission: to encourage beginning writers from New England and to give them a platform from which to publish their narrative non-fiction books.
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’s fine if you have a few previous credits in your area of interest. 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.
Are there particular types of books that you do not publish?
We do not publish books for children, poetry, academic material, nor fiction of any kind. We also do not publish non-standard sizes nor hardbound books.
We are interested in narrative non-fiction where the manuscripts are complete (or nearly complete). Examples of the kind of things we like: Mary Roach, Annie Dillard, Barry Lopez, Rick Bass. Have a voice and a point of view, and have an interesting story.
