What types of books do you publish?
We love stories – fiction or non-fiction. We will consider most genres, topics or formats. Because we’re a young company, right now almost anything goes, as long as we like it enough to publish it. We’re looking to work with authors who love stories as much as we do, who are passionate about the art of storytelling, and who are willing to actively promote their work.
Our titles are simultaneously published in both e-book and print formats using print-on-demand and online channels which distribute worldwide. We only print what we need, where and when we need it, to reduce our carbon footprint and to minimise our overheads, meaning we can give opportunities to a greater number of authors.
What don’t you publish?
SRL Publishing will not, under any circumstances, accept or review submissions with any of the following topics or elements: graphic or eroticised incest/rape; necrophilia; pedophilia; bestiality; erotica, fetishes or porn; or anything that encourages violence, hate or racism. No exceptions.
We’re currently not looking to publish poetry, self-help titles, or faith-based books.
Do I need an agent?
An agent is not required; direct submissions are very welcome.
Do I have to pay any upfront fees to publish with you?
No. If we offer you a publishing contract, there are no fees involved. We never charge an upfront payment from anyone.
How do I submit my manuscript to you?
We incorporate green business practices as much as possible, as we are all too aware of the amount of paper waste that is produced by the book publishing industry. Therefore, we do not accept paper submissions, and you should email your piece to email@example.com
Please ensure you include a cover letter, full synopsis and a detailed bio with your submission. Incomplete submissions will be deleted unread.
We don’t need your entire manuscript straight away, just the first three or four consecutive chapters of your book will do nicely.
We aim to get back to you within 8-10 weeks of submission. Unfortunately we’re unable to provide feedback if we decide to pass on your manuscript.
