You have a LGBT book you have written, you’ve edited it, written up a synopsis and cover letter and now you’re serious about getting it published with an established publisher. But who do you start sending it too.

Below is a list of LGBT publishers I recommend to get you started. These are not mainstream publishers but they can help you get a foot in the door. Two ways to submitting you story. Submit to one publisher at a time and do not sent out your submission until you have been rejected or submit your story to as many publishers at once and then accept the best offer, declining the others. I recommend submitting one at a time, waiting for that rejection email.
