Welcome to Barnes Brothers Books. Thank you for considering us as a possible press to publish your book. Our mission is to provide diverse books for all readers. Representation matters. This means people of color need to see themselves in books. Also, people from different backgrounds need to see people who do not look like them. Our belief is the more we are surrounded by diversity, the more we will understand each other.
With our mission in mind, we are looking for writers who have a completed manuscript where the main character is from a diverse background.
Please note: This is not a vanity publisher. Authors do not pay to publish with us. We are also insured.
