We are a small publishing venture in the UK with a growing list of full length fiction, some for children, some for young adults and others for mature readers. Our emphasis is on originality, quality and sensitivity. We have had first class reviews in major magazines and are constantly aiming to produce books that will stand the test of time.
International Agents and Publishers interested in rights sharing - we would love to offer our titles to markets beyond the UK.
No picture books or non-fiction. We are a small venture with a limited list but we are not a vanity press and do not charge for any aspect of the publishing process. However, there is no guarantee that published books will be distributed through retailers or make you rich and famous. You should certainly contact mainstream agents and publishers before submitting manuscripts here. If, after all this, you still would like to try, please follow these guidelines:
1. Send no more than the first 30 pages
2. Enclose a brief synopsis
3. If you want the manuscript returned, enclose correctly priced SAE
4. If you don’t want the manuscript returned, enclose basic SAE or email address
Hawkwood Books takes no responsibility for loss or damage of manuscripts in transit.
