Publishing Companies Accepting Queries And Submissions

Book Drop: No Books, Please

Image by mtsofan via Flickr

While you may be writing content for websites, many writers have a dream to write a book and get it published. Perhaps you have a great story collecting dust because you don’t know where to send it. Or,  maybe you haven’t started writing, but you have a great idea that is bound to be the the next best seller. Whatever your case may be, finding a publisher that will accept unsolicited manuscripts and queries can be a stressful task.

I stumbled across these publishers that are often accepting unsolicited queries and manuscripts, and will even consider writers that have never been published before. You don’t need an agent to send your novel,  novella, short story, or poetry. Simply look through these publisher’s guidelines and see if there is one that fits your genre, then send them your words! Check them out:

Baen Books

Baen Books publishes science fiction and fantasy books. This company will accept unsolicited manuscripts for all books, though they prefer electronic submissions through its manuscript-submission form. Baen Books has a large e-publishing department and is very accepting of new authors.

Boyds Mills

Boyds Mills publishes children’s and young adult books. This company will accept unsolicited manuscripts. Boyds is specifically looking for fiction, nonfiction and artwork submissions. This company prefers submissions by regular mail. Submitters can expect a response within three months.

DAW Books

DAW Books publishes science fiction and fantasy. They are an imprint of Penguin Books. DAW Books accepts unsolicited manuscripts from unpublished writers. favoring the paper form.  DAW Books’ guidelines states that the company will respond in about three months. They also state that they will not consider manuscripts that have been submitted to other publishers.

TOR Books

TOR Books is a publisher looking for primarily mainstream and women’s fiction, fantasy, science fiction, and paranormal romance. They are also looking for chapter books for children and young adults and horror stories.  TOR Books accepts unsolicited manuscripts on a variety of subjects.  All manuscripts should be mailed, and a query letter is not required.

Lee & Low Books

Lee & Low Books is accepting submissions for books writen for children and young adults with a multicultural theme. All manuscripts sent to Lee & Low Books must be aimed at children of color, with an authentic voice.  Email submissions are not accepted. Lee & Low Books accepts submissions from new authors through regular mail.

If these publishers don’t seem to fit what you are looking for, or you want to see some additional publishers that are looking for submissions, check out The Blue Inkwell’s article 25 Publishing Companies Seeking Non-Fiction Authors.  All 25 of these publishing companies are currently seeking proposals or manuscripts. Most are accepting both fiction and non-fiction submissions. While you are there, look around the website. Sandi has a great site with a wealth of information. Sign up for her RSS feed and then bookmark or share the article through Facebook or  Twitter. It’s always nice to help other writers get their words out in front of as many readers as possible.

Appologize For Site Being Down

I had some technical difficulties with my host the past two days, so I apologize for the site being down. I am in the process of moving to a new, better hosting provider, with a better plan,  though the difference should be seamless to you.

I am in the process of creating a fabulous Freelance Writing FAQ article, and I should be finished and have it posted later tonight.  Keep your eyes out for this fabulous new article that I think will be valuable for many people!

In the next few days to a week, I’ll also be announcing and providing the link to a new forum! This will be primarily for Transcriptionists and Writers, of which I am the mod for the writing section. We are building a totally supportive forum, where no bashing or negativity towards other members will be tolerated. Of course, difference in opinions is greatly welcome, but without bashing! So, stay tuned for the announcement!

Okay, off to do my 15 BlueGlass articles!! Have a great day everyone!

Content Mill Alternatives & Other Freelancing Jobs

English: Creating lifelong customer value with...

Image via Wikipedia

There is no question about it, content mills are changing their game and many dropping most or all of their freelance writers. Just take a look at Bright Hub, and Populis Create, just two amongst many. In the world of freelance writing, this is a big deal as people depend on these types of places to support their families. With the debate on content mills vs. private clients raging more than ever, maybe it is worth it to just take a look at what else is out there.  I always recommend that freelancers have a few eggs in their basket just in case a content mill suddenly closes or changes in a way that prevents you from writing for them. And this situation with content mills is the perfect reason to expand  your earning capabilities.

Here are just a few suggestions of content mill alternatives and other types of freelance jobs that compliment writing nicely:

Private Clients:

Many freelance writers will tell you this is where the money is, and I do agree. If you can find private clients, you set your rates and you can charge a fee equal to how good your work is. You can find private clients by posting or replying to ads at Craig’s List, Backpage, and any of the many job posting sites easily found online. You can also find private clients on bidding sites like eLance.com.

Freelance Transcription:

Dealing directly with words, grammar, and punctuation – just like writing- freelance transcription is a fantastic freelance job that compliments freelance writing perfectly! In fact, I do freelance transcription work along with writing.  No training is required for general transcription, and in some instances you can get into legal transcription without any formal training as well, but you will need a certificate from an accredited school for medical transcription work. You also don’t need to purchase any equipment to get started. The audio playing software is free to download and you just use your current computer. A set of noise cancelling headphones and a foot pedal  really help, are inexpensive, but don’t have to be purchased until you are sure you like the job and want to continue. Check out my other site : Freelance Transcriptionist Road, Freelance Writer Road’s sister site, for great information about transcription.

Website Design & Development:

Since every writer should have a website, and many have more than one, why not offer to build websites for others. You can design and build the website for a fee, and you can also provide all the content for the site and charge more money. The can be a one-time fee, bills as you work, or you can charge a monthly fee to continuously run and update the site for your client.

Affiliate Marketing:

Affiliate marketing is when you post links for other companies products and services on your site and when people client through your links and buy those items, you receive a commission. You can add these links to your writer website, your blog, or build new sites in a specific niche for affiliate marketing purposes. Anyone with any type of websites usually has at least a few affiliate marketing links in order to earn a profit from their site, but affiliate marketers focus on how to optimize this process for outstanding results, often earning hundreds to thousands of dollars a month in affiliate income.

Virtual Assistant:

A virtual assistant does just about anything a client needs in terms on online tasks. They typically do a variety of jobs, from writing website content, writing or sending emails, social marketing, building or assisting in the creation of websites, writing ebooks, creating auto-responder email campaigns, and more. You can find these types of job on the job bidding sites like elance. com, on Craig’s List, and on any of the job posting websites. Just do a Google search!

This is just a small list of content mill alternatives and other types of freelance jobs that compliment freelance writing, a list to get your brain spinning and give you a starting point for other places where you can earn  income. I  highly recommend that you consider taking on some of these types of jobs to give you job security in a time when content mills seem to be going down hill. Who knows, you might find out that you like some of these other jobs better and freelance writing will become your filler work!
