Holland Park Press
Why publish with Holland Park Press?
Holland Park Press aims to publish manuscripts that make a unique contribution to literature.
We accept literary fiction in the form of a novel, novella, memoir or collection of short stories. We also welcome poetry collections.
Literature is something we define as a work that the author was compelled to write and which provides compelling reading to book buyers.
We expect our authors to have their own unique voice and be able to add something new and lasting to literature.
The work we are looking for is here to stay and we are committed to ongoing book & author specific promotion throughout its lifetime.
We keep our list select so that we can provide promotional activities necessary to reach the full sales potential of your book.
When you are published by us we will do our upmost to prevent that that your book is heavily discounted and we aim to maximise your income.
