Submissions

Sorry we are not accepting submissions at present.

Thanks for your interest in Opening Chapter

We are a growing publisher and are keen to look at submissions of well written and edited work. We will consider any kind of manuscript. Sometimes something clicks and we will want to publish a work. We don’t have any set rules, but bear in mind that we receive a lot of submissions and can only publish a few. If we do there is no money for an advance or a big book launch and we usually use print on demand (POD) and ebooks initially.

If you want to send us your work, please send the complete manuscript as an attachment by email. We accept Word and Open Office/Libre Office documents. Please tell us a little about yourself and the ideas behind the book in the body of the email. There is no need for a full synopsis or a chapter breakdown, but if you have them you are welcome to send them as well.

We’re not bothered about line spacing, so single or double is fine.

If we don’t take your book on, it’s no reflection on your work whatsoever, since there are too many factors to list that come into play when publishing a book.

It could take a while for us to get back to you.

Send the details and manuscript to submissions(at)openingchapter(dot)com

Reminder: Please send us the completed manuscript of your work. We do not want query letters unless they have a completed manuscript attached.
