Marion Boyars Publishers are not accepting submissions for new titles at the moment. We have decided to have a break from our publishing schedule for the time being, so please do not inundate us with manuscripts by email or post, as we will not be able to look at your work or respond. Our backlist is selling very strongly and our authors have nothing to be worried about. The company is continuing and we will post here when we feel we can change our future policy on new books.

If you are looking for a good publisher, we suggest that you head for a respected independent bookshop, or a quality chain bookseller, and find a book similar to the one you have in mind. If you are really original in your thinking, you can publish yourself, and send review copies to the main literary bloggers. We can assure you that good books do not go unnoticed in this world, and eventually, your work will find readers.

If you wish to interest an independent publisher, it is likely that they will want to see the complete work, or commission an entirely different book which will fit their publishing programme. They are unlikely to commission an unwritten novel, as they do not have the resources to do this.
