What is the publishing process?

This question can be complex, with editorial, production, and marketing all being aspects of the process. If you have just submitted to us, the extended publishing process may not be overly important at this early stage.

Should your work be accepted, we offer a more open dialogue surrounding any questions regarding our process. That said, if you have a specific question early on, like ‘Do you sell via Waterstones?’ or ‘Do you distribute worldwide?’, then we can quickly and happily answer those.

(The answer to both of those questions is ‘Yes’, by the way.)

How should I organise my submission if sending through email?

Please send the work to us in either Microsoft Word or PDF format. Ideally, we need this in one single, fluid file. Please do not send multiple emails with multiple attachments.

You should be able to send us everything we need with one attachment, and the synopsis and covering letter can be contained within the body of the email.

For more information, please read our submission guidelines.

Is my book proof-read, is a cover designed, etc.?

Should the work be accepted for publication, these processes will, of course, be undertaken during the production process.

Can I submit more than one of my works?

We are only able to consider one submission at a time during the editorial process; any further work will be put on hold until the first has been considered for publication.

What type of genres/ literature do you not accept?

Although we are open to considering most genres, we don’t publish academic or foreign language works. A quick Google search will lead you to more specialist publishers for these genres.

Total number of words we have published in our books so far.

Must my work be proof-read before submitting?

Not necessarily. However, we would advise having a friend look over your work before you submit.

If your work is accepted for publication, it will always be proof-read, copy-edited and reviewed during the production process.

Do I need to double space my work?

No. We are not marking or writing on your manuscript during the early stages of the process, we are simply reading and evaluating your work for publication.

Do I need to call you to submit?

Although we welcome questions, we do not accept submissions over the telephone. We have a submission guidelines page which gives you all the information you need to get the ball rolling.
