Author / Translator Submissions
We welcome unsolicited submissions from authors and are keen to consider debut writers. (We only consider unpublished writers who write in English. Writers in other languages must be published and achieve recognition in their own language before we consider their work for translation.) Please only submit if world English rights are a possibility, ie if we could potentially distribute and sell the book anywhere.
We take a lot of time reading these submissions but cannot guarantee to reply to each author individually (although we normally will). We would ask you to familiarise yourself with us first by signing up to our newsletter – and why not subscribe too? You’ll get special first edition copies early, are thanked by name in the books, and can take part in our publishing choices in many ways.
Reading submissions is a weekend task for us. The week is taken up producing books and promoting them. To help us continue in these difficult times for literary fiction, we would kindly ask that if you send an unsolicited submission you include a receipt to prove the purchase of one of our books or let us know you are a subscriber.
We accept paper submissions only and answer most by letter. It would be best to send submissions to:
91 Tadros Court,
Bucks HP13 7GF
Please say why your book could fit our list in your covering letter. Include your email address, a small stamped addressed envelope if you live in the UK, about fifteen pages of the work and a proof of purchase or mention of your subscription (as explained above). We do not return submissions.
We try to respond within about three months. If we don’t accept your work, please don’t take it personally or ask for reasons. We’re a very small team and don’t have time to give individual feedback in each case – thanks for your understanding. It probably just wasn’t the right book to fit in with our list.

Tip for Translators
If you are submitting as a translator, you will find useful tips in translator Ros Schwartz’s guidelines on submitting a book proposal. She has kindly given us permission to share it with you:
