Submission Process

Submissions Now Open

We do not charge a submission fee to read your manuscript. If we do feel that your Work has merit, and has potential for a broader audience, then you will be offered a 3 year contract under our Hybrid Publishing Model.

We have a strict vetting process where we will review your submission and advise if we are interested in publishing your work.

We work one-on-one with authors to help them publish a high quality book, whether your book will be available as Print (POD), Digital and (for Children’s Books) Board Books.

Once your Title is released, our team will work with you to ensure you receive the maximum exposure for your Book.
