Supernova Books: Now Accepting Book Proposals

Supernova Books is the nonfiction imprint of Aurora Metro Publications, an established independent publisher in London. They are run by Cheryl Robson and they now have over 300 titles in print. They are made up of three imprints, Aurora Metro Books (fiction), Supernova Books (nonfiction), and Amber Lane Press (plays). This review will focus primarily on Supernova Books, but all three imprints are currently open to submissions.

Supernova Books publishes both general and specialist nonfiction titles.

To learn more about the nonfiction they are currently publishing, visit their website here. Although based on their submission guidelines, the only areas of specialty they are open to unsolicited submissions in are, biographies of well-known people, and books about the arts and culture.

Their submission guidelines are not detailed, and it’s a little confusing if they want the full scope of a traditional proposal or just a basic nonfiction query letter, but if you have the information prepared that meets their outlines for fiction and plays above, it does seem like it would be appropriate to submit.

All submissions must be made via email. To learn more, go here.
