Familiarise yourself with the kind of work we like in the Mind, Body & Spirit genre.
We publish fiction and non-fiction, biography and poetry, with themes that range from the paranormal
to mystery, nature and psychology, from angels to druids and much more.
In general, authors should first contact us with a brief synopsis of their work, a statement of how it supports our vision, the first few chapters and some information about themselves, in separate MS Word attachments
double-spaced with no headers/footers, sent to our email address.
We look forward to hearing from you!
GENERAL SUBMISSION TERMS
DO NOT SEND FULL UNSOLICITED MANUSCRIPTS AT THE OUTSET
Please consider the following points about how we operate:
- To keep costs down, we generally only publish paperback books, on white paper with a limited number of illustrations. However, printing and binding is of the highest quality and our covers are professionally designed and in full colour. In special cases, books are published fully illustrated in colour.
- Our books are produced in the UK, the USA and South America, Europe and Australia on a Print On Demand basis and are available for distribution worldwide, including all major outlets, on the High St and online. After print publication there is a further option to make the title available as a digital book (eBook), which will be available on all platforms.
- We only accept manuscripts, preferably fully edited, in MS Word and submitted electronically on separate attachments. (No headers/footers or page numbering please.)
- We do not offer any financial advance on royalties, but upon publication royalties are paid in full, twice a year in arrears. Royalties are typically 15-20% of the book’s retail price, substantially higher than most traditional publishers offer.
- Upon acceptance in principle of a manuscript, a one-off very low Consultancy Fee is payable. Because we are an ethical, not- for-profit company that exists to support authors, this is a fraction of what most other independent companies charge. Full details of this will be provided at that time but it includes basic editing, text formatting, cover design and all administration.
- We believe that the marketing and publicity of the work is partly the author's responsibility; we do offer extensive and detailed professional advice in this area. We also share in the marketing effort and many of our books are entered for national prizes.
