Book Editors and Book Publishers: Business and Financial Books

Learn how to submit to book publishers before sending them anything. Do not send an entire manuscript. Send a query letter or book proposal.

business books - publishersRead one of the books: Michael Larson's How to Write a Book Proposal, Jeff Herman's Write the Perfect Book Proposal, W. Terry Whalin's Book Proposals That Sell: 21 Secrets to Speed Your Success, or Stephen Mettee's The Fast-Track Course on How to Write a Non-Fiction Book Proposal.

Note: I guarantee that there have been changes in the listing below since I first developed it. Use this list only as a guide to the publishers specializing in business, financial, and career books.

“I wrote to you shortly before BEA in an attempt to get information on what I should do to get publishers interested in my self-published book. You told me to research the publishing houses and see which ones best fit my book. Well, I picked the top 24 and made press kits for those publishers.
