Publishing with Camphor Press

Are you writing a non-fiction book centered on East Asia? Camphor Press is interested in hearing from authors looking for a specialist publisher in the region.

What we offer

We are a small, independent publisher. On average we release a new book every three months, and producing quality books is the core reason we started Camphor Press. This means we are highly selective about the book projects we choose to take on.

What we are looking for?

Non-fiction with a central theme of East Asia. We will also consider exceptional submissions from adjacent regions. We do also publish fiction but currently have a full slate of forthcoming fiction titles, so we are not accepting fiction submissions.

In order for us to consider your submission, you will need to have at minimum a summary of the book’s theme, a sample chapter, and a short explanation of how you feel your book relates to others already out there. If we like what we see (and get a unanimous decision among the three founders), we’ll talk to you about taking it forward.
