Updated List of (2014) YA Publishers

All the existing lists on my blog are still current. The only one that I had to remove was Strange Chemistry that closed their doors recently. Some of these publishers pay advances. I will mark them (Adv) Some are brand new: (N) please proceed with caution. Some are outside the US. (I will mark those accordingly.)  Some I know for a fact are reputable. Those will be marked with an (R.)

The Novel Fox: Adv, N
Bloomsbury Spark: Adv, N, R
Switch Press (Capstone Imprint): Adv, N, R 
Dancing Cat Books:  N, R, (Ca)

Again, proceed with caution on any new publisher. Make sure you find out all you can before you sign with any publisher (new and existing.) But be especially careful with brand new ones. If you find out these are vanity publishers, please contact me and I will remove them. If you have any new ones that you’d like to share, I’d love to hear from you.

Hope this is helpful.

What a resourceful post. Now if only it was for MG and PB... Bet there are some out there.

Thank you, Mirka. Yeah, the only one on here for MG is Curious Fox.

I have had people ask me that. Maybe sometime soon I can compile a list for those categories too.

Off hand, Speeding Star Publishing comes to mind. They're an imprint of Enslow which has been around for years. But they only cater to MG for boys.

Thanks so much for mentioning Curiosity Quills Lisa!! We're making our way through the slushpile with answers soon, we promise!

Sure thing, Nikki. It's good to know. Thanks for stopping by.

I didn't realize Strange Chemistry closed. That's a shame.

Lisa M. Cronkhite said...

Yeah it is a shame. It was pretty recent too-- due to market saturation. Thank you for commenting, Kelly.

Good post and very helpful, writers are always looking for places to publish and having a list in one place is great!
