WHAT WE DO

PUBLISHING

Our Imprint

We accept manuscripts in general fiction, literary fiction, thrillers, criminal fiction, current events and true crime. Additionally, we will consider engrossing personal sagas, complex historical fiction, romance, and contemporary fiction.

We don’t accept manuscripts for speculative fiction, short stories collections or anthologies (including poetry), young adult, children's picture books, or non-fiction (i.e. educational or reference material).

Previously published manuscripts won’t be considered. 

Submission Guidelines

Our Submission Guidelines set out what we accept and we ask to send to us so we can evaluate your work. Once we receive your submission, an editor will evaluate it for publishing under our Imprint based on content, substance, subject matter, and appropriateness. 

We are looking for passionate, innovative, well-crafted narratives with a strong voice in their fiction or memoirs. If you want to submit your work for publishing, send us an email with the following information: 

  • Name
  • Email
  • Title
  • Word Count
  • Genre
  • A 500-word synopsis that focuses on the central characters, major themes, and plot.
  • Your manuscript: it should be in a Word document with standard margins.

Evaluation and Acceptance

We will evaluate all manuscripts that meet our eligibility requirements for the content, subject matter, and suitability for publication.
Please allow at least three months to review your complete project; as a micro-publisher, we can only take on a certain of projects at one time because of our available resources.

If we decide to pursue your project, we will email you after reviewing your material with an offer to publish your work under a traditional contract (based on the contract recommended by the Australian Society of Authors). This is where the author does not incur any costs and we cover the cost for producing, publishing and marketing the work.

Please be aware that we do not send individual letters of acceptance or rejection. If you do not hear from us within four weeks, please assume that we have decided not to pursue your manuscript for inclusion on our lists.

Submit your manuscript

If you wish submit your work after reading our guidelines, please email us.
