Back Story Publishing book projects are internally driven, from concept to production. Our editorial team develops promising book ideas and follows a detailed process of obtaining subject agreements, assigning authors, collecting images and shepherding each work through to a manuscript and finally a produced, final work.

We do not accept unsolicited manuscripts, and any and all concepts, ideas or suggestions made to Back Story become our property upon receipt.

We are happy to accept inquiries from authors with expertise in sports and sports personalities. See our submissions section for guidance.

Back Story sells through the standard retail and online channels, but can also customize a title for civic, corporate and/or institutional users who want to distribute our books to community youth, libraries, schools, as premiums or for special internal or external events. If you are interested in a customized edition of one or more of our books, please contact Rich Perelman at
