Of the multitude of niche writing markets on the scene today, the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender reading audience is one of the best educated, economically advantaged markets today. And they are hungry for information that affects their lives.
The book publishers profiled in this guide publish nonfiction titles ranging from sociopolitical textbooks on gender issues to lifestyle and health choices for the gay family and fiction ranging from romantic comedy to murder mysteries to same-sex erotica.
This is a growing niche market. Publishers and editors in this niche market are ALWAYS on the look out for fresh, new ideas and voices. No longer just hole-in-the-wall print shops, these publishers include both small, esoteric houses and the monoliths from New York City.
The biggest stumbling block writers have trying to break into niche markets is not how to write, but how to sell what they write.
The key to improving your chances of acceptance and having your book published is to know your market.
