Henery Press: Book Manuscript Submission Guidelines

Updated October 16th, 2018. They are no longer accepting unaganted submissions with three exceptions.

Henery Press is a small publisher that focuses on publishing mystery and chick lit. Their mysteries are generally on the cozier side. They publish print and electronic editions of their books. A number of their books have sold well on Amazon. Several have made it onto the USA Today bestseller list. Their books have been spotted in brick and mortar bookstores as well as libraries. A number of their books have won awards, particularly within the mystery genre. In short they have a very good track record for a publisher that has been around for less than 5 years.

Their website is aimed at selling books. It is well designed, easy to use, and up to date. The covers of the books are generally excellent.

Authors who have been published by Henery praise the editing particularly. They also have a small team focused on marketing.

They only accept submissions through email. Your subject line should be your last name, genre, and title. Include in the body of the email the word count, genre, title, and a short blurb about the book. Also make sure to include a short bio and some information about your social media presence (they expect you to have some). The manuscript should be attached as a doc or pdf file.

They are open to publishing series. If your book is part of a series make sure to include information about the series as the whole, focusing on how many of the books you have written already.

They are open to re-publishing books that are out of print, as long as the rights belong to you. They try to respond to submissions in 6 weeks or less.
