Liberties Press is actively seeking new work from new and established authors, and accepts unsolicited submissions.
We charge a fee to consider a manuscript for potential publication. This fee covers the costs involved in preparing a report on the material submitted. The report, which is shared with the author (or whoever has commissioned the report) within six weeks of payment of the invoice, covers the content and structure of the work, the literary quality of the manuscript, and the marketability of the project.
When you have reviewed the report, and if we are interested in pursuing the project further, we can arrange a phone call or meeting to discuss next steps. In the event that we are not in a position to proceed, we hope that the report will be of use to you as you consider other avenues for the work.
Submissions should be in digital format (although we also accept submissions in hard copy**), with a minimum of three chapters (though preferably the full manuscript), a synopsis, and a covering letter.
We have a hard-earned reputation as an innovative publisher of high-quality books. Over the years, we have received thousands of submissions, and have successfully published hundreds of new titles. We hope that authors will think carefully before submitting material to us, and to value the work that we do, both before and after publication.
We look forward to receiving your submission. Please contact us via the email contact form if you have any queries; we aim to respond to all queries within one working day.
* This fee is currently €950 (plus VAT at appropriate rate). The VAT rate within Ireland is currently 23% – giving a total of €1168.50. No VAT is payable internationally, so the total cost for authors based outside Ireland is €950.
** If submitting in hard copy, please do not include original photographs or documents, as we cannot take responsibility for the loss or damage of such items. Material supplied in hard copy will not be returned.
