E Publishers

Please note that this list is by no means exhaustive, there are many, many e-publishers out there. We have not listed subsidy publishers (to the best of my knowledge) and have chosen those companies that appear genuinely interested in fiction. This list will doubtless continue to grow as time for research permits.
Please check guidelines in full at websites wherever possible. Markets come and go very quickly, requirements change, they sometimes close to submissions, or become overstocked in some areas. Accuracy is not always possible under the circumstances.
