TO SUBMIT YOUR MANUSCRIPT
Mind, Body &
(About any person)
Please see the
us page for our email details and then request to send your script
and if deemed a subject we are interested in then we will contact you with
an e-mail address for you to forward us your script.
We only accept
scripts in Microsoft Word format.
Make sure the
spaces between words are double spaced and double space the gap between
the lines, otherwise it becomes difficult to speed read.
Supply a synopsis
of the whole manuscript and also supply a chapter by chapter synopsis.
Provide your details
in a clear and concise manner, otherwise it will be difficult to contact
you. You will be surprised how many manuscripts are sent with no

plan. In regard to a marketing plan, this is an essential part of a proposal;
if an author can't produce one that's satisfactory, we won't consider the
book for publication. The author has to prove to us that he or she is an
authority on the subject, or that he or she has a following to whom the
book can be sold, and that he or she understands the importance of participating
in marketing efforts willingly. At the same time, the marketing plan has
to be credible and realistic. We know what works and what doesn't, so if
an author shows naivety or grandiose notions, it's a signal to me that
he or she knows less about the market than we do.
Should you require
the manuscript to be returned then always provide a return envelope with
full postage on it. Failure to do this will result in your manuscript
not being returned, unless of course it is accepted for publication and
then we will require more details.
NOT TO SEND US YOUR MANUSCRIPT PROPOSAL
If it is less
than 40,000 words, although initlally we do not want to see your full manuscript
a synopsis and a few sample chapters usually suffice, but you must have
at least 40,000 words ready to send if we request sight of the full manuscript
If you have previously
published your work in any format (e-book, self-published, other publisher's
cast offs, etc, etc) then please do not send a proposal for it. We only
want fresh work to consider.
If you have tried
lots and lots of publishers and keep receiving rejections then there is
obviously a reason for this.
We no longer
publisher fiction, only non-fiction. If you have a fiction script then
please find a publisher with an interest in this genre.
Do not send your
manuscript to all of the publishers you can find in your search listings,
this just wastes your time, postage and printing costs. Far better
to locate a willing publisher than a one that simply shreds your manuscript
before it has even been read.
Make up a marketing
plan. For example, create a basic outline: say a list of 50 or even 100
contacts, media contacts, local bookstores who have agreed to take your
book, where you plan on listing your book etc., it shows the publisher
you have done some legwork.
Besides good content,
the most important thing that we want to see is that you have a platform
or have the means to promote this book. Be sure you know your market. Who
is in it? How big is it? How will you reach them? Be active in social media,
like Twitter and Facebook. Have a blog and update it frequently with
articles on your subject matter. Write articles for websites, blogs and
magazines. We want to know that you are viewed by the media and by potential
readers as an expert on your subject matter.
Don't worry too
much about grammar or punctuation, if the subject matter is good then this
can be sorted out for you.
WE LOOK FOR
What is important
is your enthusiasm, don't send a covering letter saying that you want a
£1m advance payment, etc. Provide positive details, say if
the piece has won a prize or newsworthy praise.

Assuming you have
not approached any other publisher:
Should you have
sent your script to every publisher under the sun, then, please, do not
send it to us, we can work wonders but not miracles!
WILL IT COST YOU?
will cost you nothing! Yes, nothing! Only later on, when we

it be necessary for you to become worried about that, as that is when we

may take your title on for publication. Please allow up to three months,
as we receive up to 1,000 manuscripts per year.
We may turn down
what are you waiting for, start to change your life for the better!
We are introducing
a service, where if we are not prepared to take a chance on your book due
to the costs then we may consider offering you an opportunity to share
in these costs. After all, producing one title before it even reaches the
print stage can run into several thousand pounds. Your book may have merit,
and if this is the case then we would ask you to consider this route, although
to date none of our books have ever gone down this route, but there is
always a first time. But first we have to see some merit in the subject
matter you offer us, that is something a vanity publisher would not do
... they would just publish anything and not have a sense of responsibility.
