Best Book Publishers UK | Austin Macauley Publishers

How We

While we remain committed to giving underrepresented writers access to the publishing world, our pride and reputation rest on the books we publish. We must, understandably, uphold certain criteria for any book we select. These include having a knack for storytelling, a compelling plot and well-developed characters, as well as some awareness of the book’s target readership and audience.

Partnership Publishing

As a partnership publisher we differ from self-publishing and traditional publishing. The partnership publishing model gives us the option to offer both standard and partnership contracts. Every manuscript submitted is reviewed by our editorial team, after this we would either offer a contract or decline the opportunity to publish the work. If you are offered a contract, all contracts include paperback and eBook formats (where appropriate) and dependent on the title we also have the experience in publishing audiobook and hardback to meet the criteria of the book. Royalty rates are in line, or even higher than average for publishers with a combined digital and print royalty rate of 60% or above, although there is no standard royalty rate in the industry among independent publishing companies.

Open Submissions Policy

We have an open submissions policy which allows us to support emerging writers that have credible well written stories but have not been given the opportunity to highlight their titles in the market. In recent years, there continues to be more published books on the market which has made it competitive to get published. Whilst some look to self-publish, others can take confidence in alternative routes like partnership publishing and at Austin Macauley we look at every title individually to identify how we can work with you.

From typesetting, editing and design to distribution and marketing, a contract with Austin Macauley Publishers includes the essentials needed to enhance the potential of each title. To find out more about what to expect with an Austin Macauley contract please see our Become an Author page.
