What to send

A covering letter giving your book’s working title and an outline of your idea. Please include a synopsis of your book, 2-3 chapters, and an idea of the kind of readers you think will enjoy it.

If you wish for your material to be returned, please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
We aim to respond to every submission we are sent. This can take us a few months, however, so please have patience when waiting for a reply.
