How to submit

Manuscripts can be submitted in complete form or as a partial manuscript including a full proposal or book outline.  Please be sure to also include the following items in your submission:

  • Author biography (what you do, where you live, any past experience in publishing, any notable published works/essays/short stories etc.)

  • Author platform – how you can support your book (website, blog, business, social media etc.)

  • Synopsis of the book (350 words MAX)

  • Approximate manuscript word count

  • Competitor analysis (where you feel your book will fit in the market, other recent similar titles)

  • Sample chapter or whole manuscript as preferred (as a single word document attachment)

If we find that the manuscript has sufficient commercial merit, we will send the author a letter of offer. At this stage we would also seek to arrange a meeting between the author and the publisher to discuss the book and ensure a good fit between parties.
