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?
