What traditional book publishing houses are accepting submissions?

Question by Travis: What traditional book publishing houses are accepting submissions?
Looking to submit my book to a publishing house. I know the book may not be the best with grammer but submitting to a publisher, they can offer a tradition publishing contract and help improve the book. Any suggests where I could submit?

Best answer:

Answer by кιтту кмℓ
Publishing houses want to see good *grammar*. I mean, Y!A actually puts an angry red underline when I write “grammer” – so aren’t you using that spell checker?

I would suggest brushing up on those skills and editing the book.

    Don’t bother. All your doing is wasting your money getting print outs of the MS. If you think grammar is no biggy, the rest is probably equally as bad. If you think you can grab a list of trad. publishers off line, you have no shot of figuring out what you’re doing wrong. If you think publishers even want to hear from writers, you’ve lost the battle before you really got started. And, considering you think bad grammar is no biggy, you haven’t really even gotten started.

    Your first step it to secure an agent, not a publisher.

    And if you hope to have a snowball’s chance in the dessert of landing an agent, not only must your grammar and spelling be *perfect* (yes, I’m serious), your story must be amazing.

    — no they’re not. Your book needs to come to them ready to publish. If it needs too much editing then they’re going to reject it. You need to show them that you can write; you do want to be an author after all. Publishers are understaffed becasue of layoffs and they dont’ have time to do heavy editing on books that need it. Publishers aren’t suffering from a lack of submission; they have their pick of the crop, so if your book isn’t ready to go then they’re going to choose someone who’s book is ready.

    & I visited an editors blog (he works at a large publisher) and he said that he rejects books that need more than 5% editing. That alone should tell you how high the standards are. Never settle for mediocre work because that won’t be enough to get you published. There are exceptions, there always are, but they’re just that – exceptions.

    Yeah, I have a list, but you also need to put in the efforts to do your own research instead of expecting someone to hold your hand and do it for you. Pick up the writer’s handbook, or whatever it’s called; i’m sure someone here will suggest it to you.
