Submissions – Books

All adult submissions should be typed with double line spacing on one side only of A4 paper and pages should be numbered.

We can only return material if postage has been included.

Please do not send the only copy of your work; while every care is taken to return material if postage has been included, because of the volume of submissions we receive sometimes mistakes do happen and manuscripts are separated from their postage and accidentally recycled. We cannot take responsibility for loss of or damage to material sent to us.

We try to read the material as quickly as possible but due to the very large number of submissions we receive every week we are unable to acknowledge receipt or give editorial guidance or advice on the material we reject.

Please note that unless we feel we may be able to offer you help or representation, a form rejection letter or email will be sent. This time-saving measure was introduced to allow more time for proper reading and consideration of all submissions.
