Submission Guidelines

We welcome unsolicited manuscripts and proposals submitted by post or
e-mail. However, please note that we do not accept e-mail attachments larger than 4 MB.

Your book will be considered by our editorial team. You will be contacted within 6-8 weeks.

Once you have received a contract from Maverick House publishers, we would be grateful if you would read the following notes, which will help to avoid any problems or inaccuracies in translating your manuscript into book form.


It is very important that you provide us with a hard copy (i.e. a printout) which is identical to the electronic version. All editorial work is done on the hard copy. We prefer work produced on Microsoft Word and saved on CD-RW discs. If you are using a different programme, please contact us for clarification.

If you have been asked to supply illustrations please ensure that these are numbered, captioned and that the manuscript is marked to show where the pictures are to be inserted. Captions should give the name of the photographer/illustrator or the copyright holder.

Once your proofs arrive, please make any corrections clearly and remember, though it may be tempting to rewrite certain sections, changes other than typesetters’ errors are expensive to make. We would be grateful if you could also supply us with a short description (200-250 words) of your book, which we can use for catalogue information and the book jacket, and a photograph of yourself.

Please read Maverick’s house style guidelines carefully. If you could follow our style it would be immensely helpful. If you have any strong preferences, however, we will of course accept these.

Please send all submissions to:
