Welcome to Tara C. MacDonald Writer

Submit to publishers and keep looking… Read Predators and Editors

Author Victoria Pinder shared a list of online publishers she’s kept.  It’s simply information not a recommendation.  I thought however, it’s important to share.


As is the info on Preditors & Editors.  Always good to check around.  http://pred-ed.com/


Here’s the list:

Publishers with Online Submissions. I’ve not worked with all the publishers below. However as a romance and science fiction writer, it’s hard to keep track of a list of every possible place to submit. I make no bones about the contracts of these companies. READ YOUR CONTRACTS. Be willing to say no. But I do tend to avoid vanity presses, and know where to submit too. This is my list that I had on excel, which someone wanted a copy of. If I can help one writer, maybe someone else needs a list of possible places to submit manuscripts too.

If you know of one and want to recommend, please email me at thegretabuckle at gmail dot com.

Small doesn’t mean no editing. And to me it’s better to start with someone whose been around the publishing block once or twice than do on your own as a beginner. (Seasoned Vets are a completely different type of writer!)
