Eye Books began life more than twenty years ago publishing books by people who had amazing stories to tell but were not necessarily writers. As the company has grown in stature and spawned the fiction imprint Lightning Books, we now publish some very experienced writers, including prize-winning novelists.
Many of those authors come to us via literary agents or have a polished manuscript ready to submit. However, that does not mean we have forgotten our roots, and we are still very keen to hear from first-time authors with a great story to tell, who may need guidance to get their account into manuscript form.
If that’s you, we hope the guidelines and attached documents on the Publishing With Us tab will be of use.
When you are ready to submit, send a synopsis and your first three chapters (for fiction) or a proposal and any sample chapters (non-fiction) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
