Submission Guidelines:

We welcome submissions from both new and previously published authors. In the first instance, please send a synopsis and three sample chapters. We would prefer to receive this by email at: submissions@smoakhousebooks.com or by using our online submission form below.

Electronic versions of your manuscript should be in one file and not separate files for each chapter or section. Only .pdf or .docx formats are accepted.

Manuscripts should use 12pt Times New Roman font and double spaced.

Include details such as: estimated word count (of complete manuscript), genre and target audience as well as your name and contact details. Any relevant information about the author should also be included.

All our submissions that make it through to the final stages of review are put forward for a traditional contract. On the occasion when we are unable to make an offer but where we still feel that the work is of high standard to be published, we may decide to put forward the option of a shared cost contract. This option may not be for everyone, but for those who do wish to continue with this type of contract, it brings with it all the backing and expert staff that would accompany a traditional contract.

Nothing to submit, but love to write?
