The Procedure for Submissions
Grub Street is one of the few publishers these days who will accept unsolicited submissions from authors. Most publishers now insist on submissions via agents. We believe as a small independent publisher that it is right for us to be open to outside suggestions. However as we are a small publishing company there are one or two points you should consider when sending a book proposal.
Please familiarize yourself with the kinds of books we publish. We ONLY publish books on cookery and military aviation history, so please don't send us your novels and your poetry.
Check out our web site for titles we have already published; the chances are if we already have a book on the subject we won't be looking for another.
If, after doing this research, you believe your manuscript might fit our list, please send a letter to either John Davies for military projects or Anne Dolamore for cookery. The letter may include any of the following: a sample of your writing (preferably the opening of the book or in the case of cookery some sample recipes and a list of contents) of no more than 10 pages, a brief synopsis and biographical information about the author. Send an SAE as well.
Please, do not:
* submit a proposal by email (they will be deleted because of risk of virus)
* send anything without a SAE (that includes adequate postage)
* send queries via fax or email (they will NOT be answered)
* call about the status of a submission unless we have REQUESTED the manuscript and you have not heard from us for at least three months
We have very little time to spend reading through proposals, most of the time we are busy producing the books we are going to publish, so don't expect a response from us in less than three months and don't ring or write to ask if we have received your submission.
We cannot be responsible for the return of unsolicited manuscripts that do not follow these guidelines.
Otherwise send to Grub Street at 4 Rainham Close, London SW11 6SS
