Sunbury Press has been publishing books since 2004. We are a rapidly growing traditional publisher in a wide range of categories. We typically receive about 2000 proposals a year, selecting only 100 of them for publication (about 5%). We choose to invest only in those opportunities that we feel have the best chance in the marketplace. 

Please read carefully!

We publish our books under several category-focused imprints. Be sure to submit your manuscript to ONLY one Imprint. 

In 2021, at least 70% of our titles will be nonfiction (NF). We are especially interested in manuscripts for our Hearth and Home imprint, but feel free to submit to other nonfiction imprints as well. If you are submitting fiction (F), please be advised that we are being very selective.
