Here at Corona Books we aim to publish the brilliant, the innovative and the quirky, regardless of genre. If you think you have a non-fiction or humour book project that would tick at least two of those boxes (with the first on the list being an essential requirement), we'd be happy to hear from you. We're not really that into rules here, so there are no submission guidelines as such for you to follow. Send us what you think might convince us of its commercial viability - obviously we'd like to know why you think the project is brilliant and/or innovative and/or quirky and otherwise why it might sell, see a sample of your work and know what stage the project is at.
Please write to us by email to [email protected] with pdf or Word attachments only please.
In terms of fiction, at present we're only interested in receiving short story submissions for our anthologies. Unfortunately, at the present time it doesn't make sense for us to be open to submissions for full-length fiction, novels or novellas. For writers of fiction, the best route to working with us is through short stories; but we'll update this page as and if the situation changes.
We've just finished the call for The Third Corona Book of Horror Stories, where we received several hundred submissions which we've read through. In fact, we received 824 short story submissions in response to that call. And we read them all, so we've been doing a lot of reading! However, once we've had a chance to recover there will be future open calls for short story submissions, so please watch this space.
