Submissions to See Sharp Press

Hiatus on Submissions

See Sharp Press will not be accepting manuscript submissions from new authors until further notice. (We will, though, continue to accept submissions from our current authors.)

The primary reason for this is that since I founded it 38 years ago, See Sharp Press has been a one-man operation with yours truly doing all of the work, but for occasionally hiring graphic artists, editors, and publicists on a contract basis.

And I need a break.

Since 1984, See Sharp has published over 50 books, almost as many pamphlets, and, of late, a number of e-books. I've been working nearly the entire time, sometimes putting in 50-, 60-, even 70-hour work weeks, and it's been 26 years since I took a vacation.

Once the books in the pipeline are out and I've had some time to rest, it's possible See Sharp will once again begin accepting manuscript submissions.

If and when that happens, we'll notify you on this site on the home and submissions pages.

In the meantime, we'll continue to occasionally publish books by our current authors.

We wish you well in your efforts to find a publisher.

Areas of Publication—Nonfiction

See Sharp Press publishes trade paperbacks in several niches. At present, we're accepting nonfiction submissions from our current authors in the following areas:

  1. Music theory, music reference, and music instruction
  2. Anarchism
  3. Atheism
  4. Religious exposes
  5. Humor (especially satire)

We'll also consider book-length nonfiction manuscripts in other areas, but we generally stick to the above niches.

Science Fiction

We publish social science fiction with an anarchist or atheist bent, and do not publish fantasy or military sci-fi. We take the "science" in science fiction seriously, and issue novels in which the scientific projections are plausible. To put this another way, we publish novels whose authors have something to say and who take the time to get the science right.

Nonpublication Areas

See Sharp Press does NOT publish the following types of materials:

  1. Poetry
  2. Books of essays
  3. Political treatises
  4. Philosophical treatises
  5. New age / metaphysical
  6. Religious
  7. 12-step "recovery"
  8. General self-help
  9. Photo collections
  10. "Literary" fiction
  11. Cookbooks
  12. Children's books
