Becoming an Author


We’ve published exciting titles from great authors, and are always open to receiving proposals!

You can start by downloading our Book Proposal Form. It’s your way of communicating your book idea with us.

The form also provides you with an opportunity, even at this very early stage, to provide Curtis Press with a detailed potential market for your book including individuals and institutions that might be interest in placing advance orders.

Once your book is accepted:

At contract, we will send you guidelines for preparing and submitting your manuscript. This includes the file formats that are acceptable to Curtis Press’ production team.

Upon delivery of your manuscript, copy editorial and typesetting will begin. This work is all undertaken in the UK to the highest book production standards. During production time, you will be asked to consider the marketing in more detail – providing Curtis Press with any additional information, not supplied on the book proposal form, that we might require to maximise sales of your book. Finally, your book will be printed, in colour where necessary. You will receive your complimentary copies and the book will be brought to market.

We look forward to hearing about your book!
