Manuscript Submissions

Author Focus


If you'd like to publish a book with us, please read the submission criteria below. 


Please note: we appreciate your submissions, but we are not able to send back any manuscripts or materials, mainly because of the volumes we receive.
 

Submission Criteria

 

Fiction

We try not to be too prescriptive, but here are some basics. We prefer hard copy submissions, printed on white A4 papers and on one side only. Double spacing is preferred as it is easiest to read. Pages should be numbered and it helps to insert the title of your manuscript at the top of each page as header.

Please do not send sole original copies of manuscripts as we cannot be held responsible for their return.

Include the following:

• A covering letter containing an outline of the contents and the target market
• A short author biography
• Please target your submission to the imprint that you think is most likely to publish your manuscript. Browse bookshops or libraries for a clear idea of what each imprint publishes.
• Please send the entire manuscript.

Submissions can be sent to:
