Breedon Books is always
looking for new authors in all our areas of publishing.
Few of our authors are professional writers: most
simply enjoy writing on their chosen subjects in their
spare time. If you have an idea, or a finished manuscript,
that you would like us to consider, then please feel
free to approach us with a written proposal at the
address below, or send
your submission by email.
Before sending anything, is a good idea to have
a look around our site to get an idea of the types
of book that we publish. We concentrate on local history,
motorsport and football titles, although there are
always a few that fall outside these areas, and we
will look at each submission on its merits. We do
not publish any fiction or poetry.
If you feel your idea is one in which we we will
be interested, it is best just to send a covering
letter and a synopsis (an outline of what the book
contains) to start with. It is helpful to include
an estimate of the total number of words the book
will run to, and to tell us whether there are any
Breedon Books is a commercial publisher. We bear
the costs of the editorial work, design, printing
and marketing of our books, and pay royalties to authors
based on sales.
We are always keen to hear from councils, libraries,
archives, local newspapers, local history groups,
football clubs and other organisations interested
in producing books in their local area.
