We are accepting submissions…

Our aim is twofold, to find and publish important literature from emerging authors and to make sure the work we publish sells. According to the New Statesman, “the percentage of authors earning a full-time living solely from writing dropped from 40 per cent in 2005 to 11.5 per cent in 2013.” As pointed out on our home page it is even harder for authors of literary fiction. One reason for this is that many publishers are using antiquated methods to promote and sell their books. We’ve built a sales and promotion team dedicated to using modern methods to make sure our books sell.

Our tastes run the gamut, but we do have a soft spot for dark literary fiction with an existential bent. Think The Savage Detectives, Under the Volcano, or Death on Installment Plan.

Please submit a synopsis and first chapter to submit@jnewbooks.com.
