My Manuscript Wish List
We are looking for non-fiction by Canadian authors about relationships, love, sexuality and relational ethics from unique and underrepresented perspectives. This includes books on consensual nonmonogamy, kink, sex work, harm reduction, LGBTQIAA+ identities, disability and related topics. We are sex-positive and recognize that gender and sexuality are non-binary.
We are particularly interested in receiving submissions from authors who can offer new insights on the themes of ethics, safety, community and consent. We welcome proposals from emerging authors and from perspectives that are underrepresented in sexuality literature, such as from BIPOC and disabled individuals. We aim to provide our readers with high-quality and well-researched content that is also accessible and engaging.
Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’d like to publish your book with us, send us a pitch at press (at) thornapplepress (dot) ca. Include a one- to two-paragraph summary of your book, tell us who you are and what makes you an informed voice on the topic, and emphasize what makes your book valuable and unique, including comparisons with related books on the market. If we like what we see, we’ll be in touch. Please do not send your entire manuscript in your first contact.
