Bookouture - digital publisher of brilliant fiction

What we’re looking for

Entertaining Fiction

We’re looking for gripping, commercial storytelling – books that keep us up all night, which effortlessly transport us to another world, with characters we’ll root for all the way.

A Distinctive Voice

What makes your style of storytelling unique? What will readers remember about your writing?  We’re looking for fresh, distinctive voices that stand out from the crowd.

A Reader Promise

Why do you keep reading your favourite authors? We call it a reader promise. One of the most important questions we’ll ask is what will make your readers come back for the next book?

Genres we’re particularly interested in

  • Crime & Thriller
  • Psychological Thriller
  • Domestic Suspense
  • Police Procedural
  • Women’s Fiction
  • Contemporary Romance
  • Romantic Comedy
  • Reading Group
  • Multi-cultural Fiction
  • Cozy Crime
  • Historical Fiction
  • Chick Lit
  • Non-fiction

But if you think you’ve written the next bestseller which isn’t in one of the genres above, we’d love to hear from you.
