Submit your Book

There are many wonderful publishing companies out there, publishing all genres of books – children, crime, history, memoirs, cookery, sci-fi, health, travel, etc. – but which one is for you and how should you approach them? You will get just one shot at making an impression. Let us help you to make it a good one.

Submit your book to a publisher
To have your book published by a traditional publishing house you should submit a cover letter, a brief – but informative – author biography, a synopsis of the book and a sample chapter. All of these elements must be carefully considered and crafted before you contact a publisher.

You will get one shot to pitch your book to a publisher; make it a good one. We can help you to master the craft of direct submission and pitch your book to the publisher that works for your book.

Find a literary agent
A literary agent is an agent who represents writers and their written works to publishers, theatrical producers, film producers and film studios, and assists in sale and deal negotiation. Literary agents most often represent novelists, screenwriters and non-fiction writers. While they will charge a fee, usually a set commission once the book has been placed with a publisher, most publishers will take notice of submissions that come in from agents.

Agents, like publishers, are selective about which authors they take on, so your approach to them must be right. As you would with a publisher, you will need to submit a cover letter, a short author biography, a synopsis of the book and a carefully chosen sample chapter. You will also need to approach the right agent for you and your book. We can help you with this.

“Siobhán’s breadth of publishing experience and professionalism were obvious from the start of the consultation. With a down-to-earth approach, she gave a clear outline of what’s involved in a publishing project and the options available at each stage. Her enjoyment at working with writers comes through in her supportive attitude and yet at the same time I never felt any pressure to move towards any particular option.”
