More publishers submission guidelines

I dealt in an earlier post with the BIG UK publishers. Here is a selection of other, smaller publishers and their guidelines. And check out the link on the title for email addresses for lots of UK publishers.

Allison & Busby The small publisher of big books. They only accept submissions via a literary agent. They publish fiction particularly thrillers and non-fiction.

Arcadia Books is an independent publisher specialising in literary fiction, translated fiction, EuroCrime, biographies, travel, multi-cultural books under BlackAmber imprint, gay and gender studies. Bliss imprint is for popular fiction. They welcome agent's submissions only. As far as I can tell, they plan to publish 20-30 titles in 2007.

Black Lace (Virgin Books) publishes Erotica. Website is currently parked so I dont know if they are accepting submissions.

Robert Hale does consider unsolicited manuscripts. 3 sample chapters and a synopsis. They publish general fiction, crime and westerns particularly.

Souvenir Press. Prefers an initial letter of inquiry before sending manuscript. Contact: Tessa Harrow, Souvenir Press Ltd., 43 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3PA

Snowbooks accepts unsolicited manuscripts via email and the blurb.

Virago Press will not be accepting unsolicited fiction for the forseeable future but they do say you can send a brief synopsis, sample chapers and a letter. They publish books by women, for women.
