Book Editors and Book Publishers: Health and Fitness Books

Health and Fitness Book Editors

Note: I guarantee that there have been changes in the list below since I first developed it. Use this list only as a guide to the publishers specializing in health and fitness books. Don't spend a lot of time or money contacting these publishers en masse. Focus on one or two at a time and write them a great query letter.

Help Us Help You

Please let us know if any of the following editor names, address, phone numbers, emails, etc. change. That's one way we can keep this up-to-date for everyone. Email: JohnKremer@BookMarket.com.

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

Read 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.
