WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We take submissions very seriously and this has resulted in some notable successes. We receive thousands of submissions a year and make a point of reading every one.
We are particularly interested in exciting commercial and literary fiction, children’s fiction for 8+ Young Adult and non-fiction for the adult market. Do look at the authors on our website to get a clear idea of the kind of books we represent.
WHAT WE DON’T TAKE
We do not accept science fiction, horror, adult fantasy, light romance, self help, gardening, film and TV scripts, plays or poetry. We also don’t accept picture/illustrated books for children or adults.
Whether submitting by email or post, we require the following:
For adult and children’s fiction: a covering letter, a synopsis and the first 3 or 4 chapters, double or 1.5 spaced with the pages numbered.
For adult nonfiction: a covering letter explaining why you are the best person to write the proposed book, an outline of 3-4 pages to a maximum of 30 pages setting out clearly why the book is both important and original, what research or experience you are basing it on, how it compares with other books on the same subject and finally what you would cover in it.
Make sure you tell us your email address for a reply and include a SAE if you want hard copy returned.
