The Bywater Books mission is to publish well-written commercial literature targeted to lesbian readers. And our focus is on the following fiction and non-fiction categories: Romance, Mystery, Action/Thriller, Science-fiction/Fantasy, General Fiction, Cross-genre, Memoir, Essay, and Autobiography/Biography

We do not publish poetry or erotica.

If you do choose to submit anyway, we will do our very best to get back to you with a timely response.
