Sorry - submissions are closed at the moment. Keep an eye on social media for updates.

We publish novels - and nothing but.

We are a new venture and, as such, will not be able to offer an advance on royalties. We can, however, promise that any novel we publish will receive the widest possible distribution and the heaviest marketing we can muster. We will not ask authors for a financial contribution. 

We want to encourage writers to keep out of the public eye, to stay Behind the Hat. We want them to write great books, not great blogs or great tweets to build great social media followings. A great read is nothing to do with who or what the author is or does. Behind the Hat is not selling the worship of the author, it’s selling the work, the word.

To get a good idea of the kinds of novel we are looking for, visit our About page and have a look at our first publication, CL Moir's Old and Ugly here.

If you feel your novel could fit the bill, send us a single page synopsis and the complete manuscript, either as a Word document (or something that can be read by Word), or as a PDF.

If you've spent months and/or years writing a novel, we think we should take the trouble to read it and reply. We'll get back to you as soon as we can - whether it's a yes please or a no thank you.

Send your submission to: including the word SUBMISSION, your name and the title of your novel in the subject line.

We look forward to reading you.
