Submissions

We are happy to consider material from potential new authors and agents. It is not necessary to telephone the Carlton Publishing Group prior to making a submission but please follow these guidelines:

Check this website for the type of titles we publish. We do not wish to consider proposals for adult or children's fiction, poetry or academic books.

All submissions should be sent by email to submissions@carltonbooks.co.uk

Do not send any originals or copies of typescripts or artwork, as we cannot accept liability for them and they may not be returned. We do not accept submissions by fax or disk.

Along with a covering letter, submissions should consist of a short synopsis, a list of selling points, the author's professional biography, information on competing titles and up to two chapters or 20 pages of the manuscript, whichever is the shorter.

Owing to the high volume of submissions we cannot guarantee to reply to each one individually.

We try to respond to submissions within four weeks of receipt but cannot guarantee to do so. At busy times of year we may take longer to consider material.

For further useful information and general hints and tips on submissions, please refer to The Writers' & Artists' Yearbook published by A & C Black.
