Submissions

Legend Press has a commitment to quality and originality. Our list varies from commercial crime to quirky cult titles as well as historical. Each book is precious and we pride ourselves in working closely with our authors to get the most out of every book.

We keep our list select so that we can provide the editorial support and promotional activities necessary. We focus on publishing fiction, so unfortunately we do not accept anything outside of this, including children’s books, poetry or travel writing. We can only consider complete manuscripts.

The most important part of submitting your work to a publisher is making sure that your work falls within the fields that they publish. You might want to read through our recent catalogues and familiarise yourself with the types of books we look for.

We receive a huge amount of submissions, and therefore ask you to be patient with us. We aim to respond within 4-6 months and cannot offer individual feedback. We regret that we cannot process submissions that do not follow the guidelines set out below, so please read carefully.

For all queries regarding submissions, click here to visit our FAQs page. Please get in touch at submissions@legend-paperbooks.co.uk if you have any questions about the submissions process.
