We are particularly interested in backlist books, so if you have a backlist that isn't currently available in eBook form, please do get in touch!
To make a submission please read the guidelines below carefully, then send to Jasmin Kirkbride at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If your submission deviates from the guidelines below, it is possible it may not be read, so please do adhere to them.
We also recommend that you sign up to Endeavour newsletter for all our up to date information.
WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR
Endeavour are looking for works of between 25,000-120,000 words in length, both in general Non-Fiction (Biography, Memoir, History, Popular Science, Self Help, etc.), and Fiction (Crime, Thriller, Historical Fiction, Romance, Women's Fiction, Science Fiction and Fantasy, and Literary Fiction).
For crime and thriller and historical fiction submissions, ideas that expand over a series of books rather than stand alone projects are preferred. Stand alone fiction submissions will also be considered however.
Endeavour will also consider full length back list titles, which have not already been turned into an eBook, in the above genres.
1. Please send a brief cover letter, along with a 150-word bio, with links to all author websites and social media platforms, in the body of your email. The bio should include relevant information, including previous publications, and any review quotes that may be available.
2. Attached to this email should be a one-page (or 500-word) synopsis, and the first 10,000 words of your manuscript. These should be in Word (.doc or .docx) or PDF format. They should be in size 12, Times New Roman font, with 1.5 or double line spacing and include contact information for the author/agent/estate on the front page. Check thoroughly for spelling and grammar errors before sending. There should only be two attachments, and please do not send multiple emails.
3. If you are sending a proposal for a series, please send us the first book in the series, or the first book that has yet to be published, do also let us know if you are submitting your work elsewhere as well.
Due to the number of submissions we receive we are unable to reply to all correspondence. If you have not heard from us within eight weeks, please assume that we do not wish to publish your work.
