Apollo Publishers: Now Accepting Manuscript Queries

Apollo Publishers was founded in 2016 and published their first books in 2018.

You can learn more about Apollo Publishers’ start here. A number of the editors and employees are experienced in the publishing industry, which is always a good sign. You can learn more about the current team behind Apollo Publishers here.

Apollo Publishers focuses on publishing “timely and topical nonfiction for adult trade audiences.” Mostly, they focus on narrative nonfiction, although they mention on their website that they are also interested in nonfiction that was “highly designed,” which I wasn’t sure how to interpret.

You can get a feel for what they have previously published here.

The website is pretty well laid out and focused more on promoting books than recruiting writers. Their distributor is Ingram Publishers Services, which is not ideal as they will take on pretty much anyone. They distribute both major and minor presses, as well as self published authors.

To submit, go to this page and scan down. Their submission guidelines are limited and submissions can be made via email or a form.

They have had serious issues in the past with keeping their website up to date. They seem to have fixed these issues.

They only ask that you “Please include a short book description and author bio.”
