One More Chapter: Now Accepting Manuscript Submissions

One More Chapter, HarperCollins UK’s award-winning digital-first publisher, is currently open to submissions. They focus on publishing commercial fiction. Because they are a digital-first publisher, even though they are based in the UK, their eBooks are accessible globally. They don’t have any mentioned geographic limitations in terms of submitting authors either, which is why we are reviewing them.

They are currently open to the following genres:

  • Crime & thriller
  • Historical
  • Romance
  • Contemporary
  • YA fantasy

You can get a feel for what they’ve published in the past by going to their main page here. You can learn more about their editors here.

The one section of their website that I found lacking was the fact that they never fully explain what they mean by “digital-first.”  The term has been used by publishers and imprints over the years to mean many things. Sometimes, it means that book will only be available in print format later on if a certain number of copies are sold, other times print publication is guaranteed, but only with print on demand. Please keep this in mind if you only want to work with a publisher that will print your book, although as an eBook publisher, it’s clear they do a good job in terms marketing and sales.
