We are very keen to develop new talents and we are open to fresh ideas. We only publish fiction.
What we are particularly looking for:
- Characters that intrigue and convince;
- a plot that takes the reader by surprise;
- writing that avoids clichés both of thought and phrase
Please send a brief summary, something about yourself and three chapters or the first fifty pages
