Turner Books: Now Seeking Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone | October 13, 2016

Turner publishes books in a wide range of categories and formats—fiction and non-fiction. They publish mainly in print but have electronic options as well. They are a major independent publishing house that has a number of imprints.

The following is a list of their imprints from their websites, which may be helpful in determining if they are the right publisher for you.

  • Turner
  • Wiley: Turner publishes under the Wiley name, with permission, for over 1,000 acquired titles
  • Hunter House: Health, Wellness & Sexuality Titles
  • Ancestry: Genealogy (acquired the assets of the book division of Ancestry.com)
  • Fieldstone Alliance: Business Books for Non-profits (acquired assets of Fieldstone Alliance)
  • Basic Health Publications: Titles on Health and Wellness
  • Iroquois Press: Fiction and Literature imprint
  • Ramsey & Todd:  Children’s books
  • Specific Titles formerly published by Cumberland House Press

They have published a number of well known authors and bestselling books. They have good distribution. Their website is easy to navigate and well designed.

All submissions must be made through email. They are open to agented or unagented submissions. They will contact you if they are interested, otherwise do not expect to hear from them. They are rather blunt about that. Unfortunately they do not have any information around average turn around time, but they allow simultaneous submissions.

To learn more about them I really encourage you to browse their catalog. To learn their submissions email address (and not much else) visit their website here.
