Read more about us here.

We welcome material from established and emerging authors. We are happy to consider adult fiction and non-fiction as well as novels for young adults, English-language manuscripts or proposals for children books based mainly on illustrations or images to be made.
We read and consider all the material that we receive and we will get back to you within 10 weeks. Due to the number of submissions we receive, we are unable to give editorial guidance or advice on the material we reject.

What to send us:

  • Editorial synopsis of the proposed manuscript (including working title, genre and estimated word count) or book already published (in the case only for translation for distribution in a different market).
  • The whole manuscript or the first two or three chapters.
  • CV.
  • Please note that we will open only word-processing attachments such as Word docs or Libre Office (.doc/ .docx/ .pages/ .odt).

On the home page you can download the PDF memo with the requirements for the submission.

Important: when submitting it, the manuscript must respect the following characteristics:

  • It is allowed to format the title of the chapter.
  • Bold and italics where needed.
  • Font size: pt12.
  • Font: courier new.
  • Justified alignment with Hyphenation.
  • Sheet format: A4
  • Editorial folder: page of 1800 characters (30 lines by 60 characters including spaces).

Considering also the diversity of the default setting of each writing system even in using the editorial folder that you will find below, it does not matter if instead of being 1800 it will be 1790 or 1890 characters; it is important to keep the advice given as much as possible. We inform you that on the editorial folder we leave a margin of 100 characters.
Download the pre-set editorial folders for the .doc, .docx, .odt format, which you will find below.

Please note that all files that do not reflect the above requirements will not be taken into consideration.
