Many factors determine whether we proceed
to read your full manuscript... size, and the quality
of the writing, genre and the storyline, and our assessment
of marketability... all influences our investment
attitude. Manuscripts must be the author's own work and
stories containing scenes or plot lines bearing an obvious
resemblance to other published works which may breach copyright
laws, will be rejected. Not all manuscripts are of the quality
we demand for publication and we regretfully reject a percentage
The completed, FULL MANUSCRIPT should
be forwarded as part of the initial submission, allowing
us to read as much of your work as we require. Do not make
a submission if your manuscript is unfinished - send an
enquiry email instead. Whilst we respond to all emails,
we do not provide any assessment or review of a title.
Only DIGITAL SUBMISSIONS as an attachment to an email
are acceptable. We do NOT accept paper submissions.
We read most FICTION, thrive on historical
and true crime and we love adult and YA romance and a good
story... and we accept a limited number of true-life, self-help
and an occasional biography. If in doubt -- enquire.
We welcome submissions from Literary Agents, but send an
enquiry email first.
