Torrey House Press (THP) publishes fiction and nonfiction for the book trade. We are interested in well-crafted works of narrative nonfiction and literary fiction with a natural history, environmental, or a natural landscape theme, or about the politics and practice of sustainable living. We accept agented and unagented work.
In an effort to be green and organized, please submit your manuscript electronically through our submission manager link below. Keep in mind that the most successful submission will articulate why you and your work are a good fit for Torrey House Press. Please tell us how you found us in your cover letter.
Fiction Submissions: Demonstrate in your cover letter how your work fits with the THP mission. Also include a synopsis, some background on yourself and why you feel you are a good fit for THP, who your readership is, and how you propose to market your work. Please submit your entire manuscript along with your cover letter.
Nonfiction Submissions: For completed manuscripts including memoirs or essay collections, please follow instructions for fiction submissions. For queries on proposed work, please submit a one or two page overview of your book idea along with information about yourself, why you are qualified to write on the subject, who your audience is, and how you propose to market your work.
If we like what we see we will request a full proposal. For a full proposal, once requested, please include a cover letter, a resume, a preliminary table of contents, a one or two-paragraph summary of each chapter, a list of other books on the topic, details and specifics of your target audience, a summary of any market research you have done, and any completed chapters.
We are closed for unsolicited submissions and will reopen on August 1. We typically make publication decisions during April and September so it may be a few months before you hear from us. In the meantime, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter and sign up for our newsletter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
