The big boys in the urban fiction publishing game are Triple Crown Publications, The Cartel Publications and W. Clark Publishing but there are many publishing houses breaking into the game and creating best-selling authors. I’ve created a listing of the top five new urban fiction publishers that new writers may find literary success with. Remember to follow submission guidelines to a T if you want your work to be seen and not tossed to the garbage pile. Create a compelling synopsis also and if you don’t know what or how to write a synopsis follow my blog for an upcoming post showing you how. Thanks again.

Voices Books and Publishing

Voices Books and Publishing is founded by Brenda Hampton. She like most fiction writers started her own publishing company producing authors that were eventually picked up by larger traditional publishing houses. That is a big deal especially if you are looking to get your foot in the door. This publishing house accepts manuscripts for all types of African-American literature so don’t be shy if you aren’t an urban fiction writer. What I like this company also is that it has a down home feel to the website. for submission information you must send your manuscript. Follow the link for their guidelines.

Life Changing Books

I mentioned this publishing company in a previous post but thought they were worth another mention. It is a ten-year old company that has already made its mark in the urban fiction game. Many of this company’s authors go on to become best-selling authors. It is owned by Azazel an author whose claim to fame was with their debut urban fiction tale ‘A Life to Remember’  They are currently accepting submissions and provide their guidelines on their site. You can get a feel for the type of work they accept by browsing through their bookstore. Bring your A game when you submit your work.
