Camel Press: Now Accepting Manuscript Queries

***Please note, there has been an uptick in publishers that are not accepting unagented submissions. Too many presses and publishers are getting mass submissions that do not fit their catalogs. DO NOT submit your work if it doesn't fit the publisher's guidelines.

Camel Press is the genre imprint of Coffeetown Press. They predominately publish mysteries, including the following sub-genres: suspense, cozy mystery, mystery thrillers, and romantic suspense.

The press also publishes romance (contemporary and historical) and will consider general fiction, historical fiction, and westerns. They are looking for authors with strong promotional plans in these categories, though.

Camel Press has distribution in the Pacific Northwest, and not anywhere else. However, they’ve been around for over 20 years, and most of their books receive positive reviews and sell well on Amazon.

Their website targets readers, not writers. Unfortunately, some book covers are not that great, but they are genre-appropriate.

Epicenter Press, the parent-company of Coffeetown Press, also owns a vanity press company, but they do not seem to redirect authors towards it. If you are sent to them, please send Authors Publish an email at They like to keep up to date on things like this.

I also ask that you let me know, so I can either take this post down or put an eye-catching disclaimer on it. I don’t want anyone to get scammed.

How to Submit to Camel Press

Camel Press has detailed and thoughtful submission guidelines, so please read and follow them carefully. Here are some of the basics that you need to send to them:

  • The first 50 pages of your novel
  • A biography
  • A synopsis of your tale
  • Your strong promotional plan, if you have one.

The press is open to submissions from established authors with an out-of-print book, as long as they are not available online. They do not publish reprints under any other circumstance.

Good luck to all of you who choose to submit. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you.

And if you accepted, please let me know! I’d love to read your work and pass it along to a friend.

Stay safe, everyone.

Until next time.
