Submission Guidelines

BLACK ROSE BOOKS welcomes book projects in the social sciences and the humanities. We are a non-profit publisher of books that offer a radical analysis of our society. The books we publish have to be solidly documented and presented as lucidly as possible.

Each submission requires a pre-paid evaluation fee of $50. This fee is returned to the author[s] if we decide to publish the manuscript.

Please review the previous books published by Black Rose Books on our web-site to gain a sense of our fields of interest.

Submitting a Proposal:

So that we may evaluate your manuscript for publication as quickly as possible, we ask that you send the following materials:

  • A letter explaining the subject of your manuscript and its intended audience;
  • An outline of the text and/or the Table of Contents;
  • A preface and/or introduction;
  • One sample chapter;
  • Current curriculum vitae and, if applicable, a list of contributors.

Typically, the editors meet to consider potential manuscripts for publication quarterly. This being the case, a review could take between 3 to 6 months, but we do make every effort to reply as quickly as possible.

Please send your proposals to the following address:
