Torrey House Press (THP) publishes environmentally oriented fiction and nonfiction for the book trade. We are currently focused on acquiring environmental nonfiction for an identifiable audience — books with lively, cutting edge thinking on subjects such as the local food and local business movements, perma-culture, water catchment, environmental building and landscape design, renewable energy, how small is beautiful, and other ideas of enlightened, sustainable living. In addition to these focused-niche subjects, we will continue to consider well-crafted works of narrative nonfiction and literary fiction with a natural history, environmental or a natural landscape theme. We remain interested in exploring the notion of why wilderness is important, the value of well managed public lands, and the transformative power of natural places.
If you are a previously published author with a readership following we are particularly interested in you. Consider becoming a big fish in a small pond where you and your work are understood and valued.
In an effort to be green and organized we strongly prefer that you submit your manuscript electronically through our submission manager link below.
If you have a completed work that you feel is a good fit for THP, please submit your entire manuscript along with a synopsis, some background on yourself and why you are a good fit for THP, and your thoughts on who your market and readership is.
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 would 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 you have.
When you submit please tell us how you found us in your cover letter.
