We are always on the lookout for exciting new work and we welcome submissions across all relevant genres* by email.

Please email all submissions to:

We only accept electronic submissions. Please include a covering letter, brief synopsis, short author biography and the first three chapters of your manuscript as a Word document or PDF attachment. Downloadable material, e-books, or links to any such items are unacceptable. Please note that all postal submissions will be recycled unread.

We look forward to hearing from you!

*Unfortunately we are unable to accept radio/theatre/TV scripts. We are unable to accept submissions in the following genres: non-fiction, poetry, fantasy, SF/Horror, erotica, or short stories. We are unable to accept submissions in the field of adult illustrated books on art, architecture, design, and visual culture. We cannot accept submissions delivered by hand or submissions on discs, memory sticks or other electronic devices. We are no longer accepting submissions in the YA/Childrens genre. Please note: We endeavour to read every synopsis and submission we receive. However (with apologies!), due to the huge number of submissions we receive, if you have not heard from us in six months, it is unlikely we will be interested in your work.
