About Us

Founded by publishing industry veterans Jamie Raab and Deb Futter, Celadon Books, a division of Macmillan Publishers, selects each title with thoughtful consideration in an effort to create a list that is at once classic, uncommon, and fosters discoverability of new voices.

Our list includes a wide-ranging selection of  fiction and non-fiction, from page-turning thrillers and literary novels to works of history and psychology, narrative nonfiction and memoirs. The common denominator is that we aim to publish books of quality with commercial appeal.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: Due to the overwhelming number of unsolicited manuscripts, proposals and query letters we receive daily, it is our house policy not to read them. We do not accept responsibility for loss or damage to, or return of, unsolicited manuscripts; unsolicited materials you send to us will be recycled or otherwise discarded. We regret that we cannot read your material. If you would like additional information about publishers and literary agencies that do read unsolicited manuscripts, we recommend that you consult Literary Marketplace, a reference work published annually and available in many public libraries. Good luck placing your work, and thanks again for thinking of Celadon Books
