Sapere Books: Now Accepting Manuscript Submissions

They are accepting submissions of crime fiction, mystery, thrillers, romantic fiction, women’s fiction, historical fiction, history, and historical biographies, as well as action and adventure books. You can submit unpublished manuscripts or out-of-print titles.

They are a digital first publisher with a focus on thorough editing, good covers, and a fair royalty rate. They also release some books in audio format. They say that they have an individual marketing plan for every book they publish, but their more recent publications don’t have as many reviews or sales on Amazon.

Still they seem to do a good job in terms of editing (from the samples I’ve read), and covers. Their website is focused on selling books, not recruiting authors, which is always a good sign.

It’s good to get an idea for what they publish by browsing their back catalog here. They also have detailed information about employees listed here.

Thanks to a wonderful reader finding this article, I now know they were founded in 2018.

They ask that you submit the first 10,000 words of your work, which is a lot longer than the standard first 20 pages.

You can learn more and submit here.
