About Us

Single Stride Publishing is a different kind of publishing company. We welcome books with quirky topics from first-time authors and we have faster turnaround times than many other publishers. A lot of publishers don't want to take a chance on an "unproven" writer, but here at Single Stride we know how difficult it is to get your foot in the door. Many authors struggle to even get their query letters read; at Single Stride we always read each submission and reply personally to every author.

Single Stride is committed to quality: quality work from our authors and quality service in what we provide. Good writing, well-crafted plots, and meaningful subject matter are more important than genre, although Single Stride takes a particular interest in young adult, children's, and mystery fiction. Our readership consists of people who enjoy solid story-telling and aren't easily impressed with flashy graphics and "trend" writing. Some of the genres we won't consider include science fiction, horror, fantasy, comic/graphic, poetry, and self-help.

Single Stride publishes both commercial and literary fiction by new authors and provides more marketing and promotion services than many other publishers. We like to treat each book individually and we work hard to create innovative ways to sell that particular book. We develop highly focused multi-dimensional sales and marketing plans that are tailored to meet the needs of each book we publish.

We are currently at capacity for new projects and are unable to accept new submissions at this time.
