Bookouture

Full details

  • We are looking for full-length, commercial fiction and some text-lead non-fiction, but no children’s books, film scripts, poetry or short stories
  • Please send us a complete manuscript of your full-length book in a clear font with double spacing
  • If you have used track changes to edit your book, please remember to switch it off before you send it to us
  • Have a look at our website to give you an idea of the books we are already publishing. Is yours a good fit for our list?
  • If you’re unclear how to pitch your book, don’t panic! Just tell us in a couple of sentences what you think it is about and make sure you attach the full typescript. We’ll do the rest!
  • If you are able to pitch your book in a couple of sentences, using published titles that you feel are comparable to yours, this is helpful, and a good indication that you know your market
  • We read everything that is submitted to us, and will aim to come back to you within a month. But due to the volume of submissions and the size of our team, we are not able to give you a detailed response with editorial feedback
  • Our decisions are based on what will work for us commercially and how we can position a book with forensic precision. If this isn’t clear it will be very hard for us to publish successfully. But we might still be fans of your writing and in that case it’s likely that an editor will be in touch with you to explore the possibility of further ideas
