We can't wait to hear about your novel

Currently at Acorn Publishing we are accepting all genres except erotica and horror.

We're a collective of seasoned writers, and we know that you've put your heart and soul into your manuscript, which is why at Acorn Publishing, we treat your book as more than just a shelf-filler. If we believe your work could be a match for Acorn, you will be given individual attention and constructive feedback from our team of professionals.


Acorn Publishing conducts an intense vetting process to assure that each manuscript accepted is of high quality. We receive a high volume of submissions each week and want to give every manuscript the opportunity it deserves. For this reason expect a six week response time for all new inquiries.

To submit, please send a short query letter that includes your word count and genre, a synopsis, and the first three chapters of your manuscript to If your book will include illustrations, please attach a sample of these as well.

You do NOT need an agent to submit your manuscript to Acorn Publishing and we do NOT require a fee for any submissions.

Before you submit, please review how our process works  for information on our publishing services.
