For Authors

Cover to Cover is a small, privately owned press located in Peterborough, Ontario.

At Cover to Cover, we are always on the lookout for excellent manuscripts. Our focus is on publishing quality non-fiction, especially books that tell Canadian stories in pictures and text. Specifically, we are interested in publishing well-illustrated books of local, regional, and national interest in the following fields:

  • Social and popular history
  • Biography and memoirs of regional or national import
  • Art, architecture, and cultural heritage, especially heritage buildings
  • Boating, recreation, sport, or wilderness conservation and use, especially as these relate to Canadian history and culture
We do not publish mass-market fiction (e.g., fantasy, romance, science fiction, or other genres), how-to guides, cookbooks, or non-fiction geared primarily for the academic market.

If you think you have an idea or a manuscript for us, please send a query letter to the attention of senior editor Karen Taylor. Or submit a sample or full manuscript for her consideration to the mailing address below. (We do not consider email submissions.)

All work should be typed and submitted on unbound paper; please use only one side of each page. Include a cover letter, a brief biography, a list of previous publications, and a self-addressed stamped envelope. Submissions without a self-addressed stamped envelope will not receive a reply. If you would like to have your manuscript returned, you must include sufficient postage.

We typically reply in four months.
