Alcove Press: Now Accepting Manuscript Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone

Important: Read This Before Submitting Your Manuscript

Seven common manuscript submissions mistakes that are very easy to avoid.

Alcove Press is a new imprint of the established publisher Crooked Lane (which is owned by Bookspan). Usually we don’t review publishers that have not been actively publishing for over a year, and Alcove released their first book in September 2020, but because they are an imprint, and one that is clearly being invested in, we are reviewing them now.

Alcove Press is focused on publishing upmarket Book Club fiction that “explores family, friendship, and community”. They are actively trying to publish debut authors as well as established ones. You can see the books they’ve published so far here. You can learn more about their launch in this Publishers Weekly article.

They are distributed by Random House. They have also partnered with Dreamscape Media, to produce and distribute their titles as audiobooks.

Unlike most publisher websites they are not focused on selling books, because they are distributed through Random House, you actually have to buy their books elsewhere online. Instead they share detailed information about their editors and what each editor is seeking. You can learn more.

The editors all bring a great deal of experience to the table and that inspires trust as well. It’s very easy to get a feel for what they are looking to publish because of the detailed information involving what each editor is drawn to.

As always, only submit if your work seems like a good fit.
