Submission Guidelines

In response to the vast number of unsolicited manuscripts we receive at Allison and Busby, and in view of the fact that we simply do not have the time or the manpower to evaluate these properly, we regret that we can now only consider submissions which come via a literary agent.

We therefore suggest that you seek representation by an agency which is in the best position to evaluate your submission. Once accepted, they will send it to the appropriate publishers, and negotiate on your behalf if your work is accepted for publication. Most literary agencies are listed in The Writers and Artists Yearbook, published annually by A&C Black. This can be found in most bookshops and libraries.

We wish you all the best in the successful publication of your book.
