Submissions

We publish trade fiction and non-fiction, and we publish what we like.

Virtually every genre is represented by one of our fine authors; this is owed to their individual ability to tell a good story. From classic literature to political memoirs, from illustrated picture books to gripping suspense thrillers – the key is in the quality.

We ask for your patience in waiting for our response. We do our best to respond within 6 months, but occasionally are unable to do so.

We look forward to reading your submission!
