PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR WORK TO:
All authors are asked to send in a sample – Three (3) chapters and synopsis of their book, preferably by email, to email@example.com
We aim to read initial submissions within six (6) weeks of receiving them. If we like what we see, we will then ask to read your full manuscript. After reading your manuscript we will then decide whether we place the book on our longlist for future publication.
A position on our longlist is not necessarily a guarantee of publication. Should we decide not to take your manuscript any further we will always try to provide constructive feedback although we can’t always give you detailed reasons for our decisions.
If we do wish to proceed with your work, we will discuss fully our plans and timescales with you and at that point offer you a contract to publish.
Please be aware that agreeing to read your initial submission or the full manuscript does not constitute an offer to publish.
