We welcome submissions from both new and emerging authors; those writers who have not yet published a work of fiction by a publisher at the time of submission. We also sign work, previously unpublished in the UK, by established authors. We are particularly interested in publishing English language translations of books previously published in foreign language territories.

We are looking for stories by bold and unabashed authors with a unique voice; work that strives to entertain, inspire, open and expand the mind. We are not looking for perfection, rather brilliance in whatever form it takes. Diamonds in the rough are most welcome.

If you meet these criteria, you can send your work directly to our editorial team by email. This is our preferred method and will ensure the quickest response.

Before submitting your work, we suggest you fully understand and are comfortable with our way of working. We believe we offer incredible value with high integrity. Judge for yourself. Read about our  Independent Publishing Contract.

Please send a synopsis and complete manuscript to submissions@foreshorepublishing.com


In the first instance, please send the following:

A synopsis and complete manuscript*

Word count (of complete manuscript)**

Genre and target audience

Your name and contact details

Any relevant information about the author should also be included.

Please send all material for review as a single Word document.

*Your manuscript should be in one file and not separate files for each chapter or sections. Please use Microsoft Word format and 12pt Garamond font.

**As a guide, your manuscript should be between 10,000 and 50,000 words for short fiction and between 50,000 and 125,000 words for full fiction.


Once your submission is received it is considered for publication by an editor, who will assess content, subject matter, and suitability.

The review process usually takes between 4-6 weeks.

If the editor considers the work to be appropriate for our lists, we will put forward an offer of publication.

Thank you.
