Post date: 12 January 2011
Publish With Hunter House

Hunter House is looking for a few good authors. We are always interested in manuscripts from authors whose work would provide our readers with the information necessary to affect personal improvement. The guidelines below are in two parts: (a) the subject areas in which we publish and (b) the kind of proposals we like to see. The areas in which we publish reflect our tag line, which is "books for health, family, and community," although some of our books fall into more than one of these categories. Our guidelines should assist you in determining whether your manuscript fits into one of our subject areas, and will direct you through the process of submitting a book proposal.

Health and fitness, especially women's health

Our health books focus on emerging or current health issues that may be inadequately covered for the general population. We look for comprehensive, balanced, and up-to-date information presented in a clear and accessible manner. The book should describe causes, symptoms, medical theories, current and possible treatments, complementary and alternative therapies, successful strategies for coping, prevention, and so on. Illustrations, sidebars, reading lists, and resource sections that provide additional information or enhance the content are desirable. We specialize in women's health, with sublists on cancer, fitness, and women's health reference. We are currently interested in books about aging, complementary therapies, and fitness. At the top of our health list are Menopause Without Medicine; Alzheimer's Early Stages; Women Living with Multiple Sclerosis; The Complete Guide to Joseph H. Pilates' Technique of Physical Conditioning.

Sending Us Your Manuscript: After you have done your marketing research and written your chapter outlines, consider whether Hunter House is the right publisher for you. We do not publish fiction, autobiography, or general children's books, so those types of works get returned right away. If you do have what we are looking for, then send it on. Proposals that are not accepted for publication will not be returned or responded to unless they have a SASE.

We do accept simultaneous submissions and look for computer printouts of good quality or e-mail. Please inform us if a manuscript is available on computer disk (IBM format is preferable).
