Hamilcar Publications: Now Accepting Manuscript Proposals

Hamilcar Publications is a small Boston-based nonfiction publisher. They are primarily focused on the following categories: professional boxing, true crime, hip-hop, and jazz. It was founded by an experienced editor, and an experienced book designer. You can learn more about the company here.

They are distributed by the Two Rivers Press imprint of Ingram, which does a much better job than the general company. Their books are well designed and appealing. To get a feel for what they’ve recently published, go here.

It’s easy to tell if your work would be a good fit or not, because they very much inhabit a niche market.
