YOUR MANUSCRIPT...
                                       
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 of submissions.

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.
