We do not publish children's books, YA or poetry. Please send the first three chapters and a synopsis. Unfortunately we can’t get back to you straightaway but will do our best to let you know if we want to see the full manuscript hopefully within twelve weeks. Thanks for your patience.
Submissions should be sent electronically to kevin [at] bluemoosebooks [dot] com.
Bluemoose Books is an independent publisher based in Hebden Bridge, West
Yorkshire. Kevin and Hetha Duffy started Bluemoose in 2006 and as a
‘family’ of readers and writers we’re passionate about the written word
and stories. Stories are transformative and as publishers we delight in
finding great new talent. We don’t have the heft of a London publishing
house with the millions of pounds to promote our writers but we do
manage through innovative marketing to get our books into high street
bookstores and reviewed in the national press. If you’re looking for
orange headed celebrity books, you’ve probably come to the wrong place.
But if you want brilliant stories that have travelled from Hebden
Bridge, across the border into Lancashire, down to London across to
Moscow, Sofia and Budapest and into the United States, Australia, India,
Colombia and Greenland, Iceland and Bosnia Herzevogina then Bluemoose
is the publisher for you.
