Submissions

We are a new agency, excited to build our list and find new writing talent across Fiction and General Non-Fiction. We are not currently taking on new Children’s books.  The areas we are interested in are:

Fiction – We are looking for novels that fall into the Book Group, Commercial/Literary crossover area.  These aren’t really genre specific, but are always intriguing, incite debate and have an exciting hook that can be pitched in just a few lines. We don’t represent Science Fiction – there are other agents who are experts in this genre.

Non- Fiction – We are excited to be representing books from our well known TV talent in the areas of: Lifestyle, Memoir, Cookery, History, Social Affairs and Humour. We don’t represent: Academic Books, Scripts or Poetry

It is only fair that we take on books that we feel absolutely passionate about. There will be great books that won’t be right for our list, so please don’t be discouraged if we feel your work isn’t right for us, as there will undoubtedly be another agency that feels differently and is a better fit for your work.

We cannot consider submissions sent by post, or return any that are.

For more information on what a literary agency represents please visit the Writers & Artists Yearbook.

GUIDELINES

Please send only one email submission with the following information:

  • Please add your full name and the title of your manuscript in the boxes provided

 

  • Please give a brief pitch or description of what the work is about, and a small biography in the Message Section

 

  • Please attach as a Word document or PDF – a one or two page synopsis and the first three chapters (or the first 30 pages if the chapters are very short) of the manuscript.

 

  • Please make sure the attachments are labelled with author name, title and whether it is the synopsis or the chapters.

 

  • The Manuscript and Synopsis should be double spaced, and have page numbers.

We will get back to you within 8-10 weeks, but do let us know via the submissions email address if other agents have requested your complete manuscript or you have an offer of representation.
