Divertir Publishing is an independent publisher located in Salem, NH. Our goal is to provide interesting and entertaining books to our readers, as well as to offer new and exciting voices in the writing community the opportunity to publish their work. We seek to combine an understanding of traditional publishing with a unique understanding of the modern market to best serve both our authors and readers.
What we are interested in:
Science Fiction, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Historical, Historical Romance, Alternate History, Mystery and Suspense, Paranormal, Romance, Short Stories, and Young Adult.
Political/Social Commentary, Current Events, and Humor and Satire.
What we ARE NOT interested in:
Erotica and graphic novels (sex/violence), Textbooks (any topic), Novellas, Memoirs, and Single-Author Poetry and Short Story collections. Also, we don't publish Young Adult or New Adult manuscripts with sexual themes – because we’re prudes.
Divertir Publishing believes the most effective way to establish readerships for up and coming authors is through short story collections. Thus, we publish several collections each year. We prefer stories between 1,000-15,000 words.
We use a combination of digital printing (print-on-demand) and distribution in electronic formats for the majority of our books. We understand that relying solely on digital printing and eBooks limits our access to some distribution channels (such as brick-and-mortar bookstores). We believe the cost savings resulting from the use of these technologies will allow us to publish in niche areas which are not currently served by many publishers – such as publishing short story collections. We limit the number of books published each year to guarantee that each book receives the individual attention required to create the highest quality product possible.

Fiction and nonfiction should be 60,000 to 80,000 words. Please note that, unless the author can demonstrate the length is warranted, we will not consider manuscripts of more than 100,000 words for publications.
