Please email your submission to email@example.com
I don’t accept any submissions by post.
This is what to do! (Please don't phone or email ahead. It's all here!)
1 Type your book title and surname in the email subject line.
2 In the email, tell me briefly about your book and yourself.
3 Paste the following into the email (i.e. not as an attachment):
for fiction, a brief synopsis of the whole plot, followed by the first 3000 words of your book;
for picture books, the complete text.
for non fiction, a short proposal and text for three sample pages.
This is what NOT to do!
1 Please don’t include any images, as this can overload my system.
2 Don’t email the whole manuscript (except for picture books).
3 Please don’t send your book until it’s finished!
And this is what to expect.
1 You'll receive an acknowledgement when your submission arrives.
2 If I am interested in seeing more, I will contact you within four weeks. If you haven't heard from me after four weeks, I'm afraid that means I don't want to take things further.
Submissions which don't follow these guidelines will not be considered, and all postal submissions will be recycled and not returned.
I look forward to hearing from you!
