Yellow Pear Press is actively acquiring clever, playful, and imaginative adult trade manuscripts that lend themselves to beautiful, distinctive design and have a certain joie de vivre in content or theme.
For nonfiction projects: please send a proposal including an overview of the project, sample text and/or illustrations along with a brief author and/or illustrator biography, including information about professional websites, blogs, Twitter handle or other relevant social media outlets.
For fiction projects: please send a query letter and the first ten pages of the manuscript along with a brief author biography, including information about professional websites, blogs, Twitter handle or other relevant social media outlets.
The only fiction genres Yellow Pear Press is looking for are literary fiction, women’s fiction and smart, well written chick lit. We are NOT looking for bodice ripper romances, mystery, sci fi, poetry, graphic novels, anthologies, short stories, novellas or children’s picture books.
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately we are not able to respond to all queries and proposals, so if you do not hear from us within six weeks, it indicates that we are not interested in pursuing the project. Sorry!
