man typingWelcome to Book Publishers Canada

My name is Brian Grove. I’ve been a published author since 2004. What have I written? Well, I’ll get to that in a minute. First of all please let me tell you a bit about this site.

I created this website because of the amount of authors who are struggling to find traditional, royalty paying Canadian book publishers, without the need for a literary agent.

A book publisher who shoulders all the financial risk.

The aim of this site is simple:

To create a unique, dedicated free database of traditional, Canadian book publishers who are accepting submissions from all authors, whether or not they are represented by an agent. Book publishers that have been properly researched, are regularly updated, and are accepting submissions.

This site is the result of painstaking research. There isn’t anything else like it anywhere else on the internet. If you are an Canadian author looking for a traditional publishing deal, Book Publishers Canada may become one of your most valuable free resources. I am not affiliated to, or earn a commission from any of the publishers listed on this site.

All of the Canadian book publishers listed on this site:

  • Are currently accepting submissions from all authors, whether or not they have been previously published, or are represented by an agent.
  • Will either have told me personally, or have stated clearly elsewhere that they don’t charge authors for publishing or pay an advance upon signature of the contract.
  • Pay royalties to their authors once any advance has been earned out. The only exception being the handful of publishers who offer to buy work outright.

On this site you will only find traditional Canadian book publishers. They are all accepting manuscripts and book proposals from unrepresented authors.

My website and database of publishers is completely free to access. It also contains a few useful articles and some resources that can help, but they are optional.

So, what now?

  1. Click on the book publishers that interest you from the menu tab above.
  2. Go through the various genres and click on the links for further information.
  3. Submit your work carefully following each of the submission guidelines provided.

You can also sign up for my free newsletter. Subscribers get immediate access to information about new traditional, book publishers in Canada which is a huge advantage for authors in a competitive publishing market.

If you need more information you can also contact me. I will try to help you if I can. Please note though; I do not represent authors. I’m often asked to do this, and I always say no. I don’t have the expertise, let alone the time. If you feel you need representation you will need to secure a literary agent.

If you would like to see my book at Little, Brown Book Group click here (authors G). In this particular instance I’m on the same page as Germaine Greer.

Best regards,

Brian Grove.
