Submission Guideline

ROMAN Books is an award-winning independent publisher. We publish fiction, non-fiction, poetry and contemporary literary criticism by acclaimed and debut authors from all over the globe. We have two imprints—ROMAN and Quintus.

We have offices in London and Kolkata. We have a global sales network based in India, the UK and USA. Our books are available in all major bookstores in India, the UK, USA, EU and Australia.

WE ARE NOT A SELF-PUBLISHING COMPANY OR VANITY PRESS. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT IF YOU WANT TO SELF-PUBLISH YOUR BOOK.

We do make relevant investments in sales, marketing and promotion of accepted manuscripts with active support and involvement from the author. The nature and extent of this varies from title to title.

We are currently accepting unsolicited submission for the following:

FOR NEW AUTHORS: Submission of fiction and poetry from debut, unpublished and new authors will be open again in mid-2022. Please check back.

We are accepting submissions for consideration from new authors for academic titles.

FOR ESTABLISHED AUTHORS: We welcome submissions from established authors. Please give us complete details of your previously published titles with full details of sales history.

Please send electronically typed COMPLETE MANUSCRIPTS and not sample chapters.  Each submission must contain your short biography of approximately 300 words and a covering e-mail without which we shall be unable to consider the submission.

Once received your submission will be given full consideration by our experienced editorial board. You can expect a reply from us within 8-12 weeks.

Please send your submission as an e-mail attachment to [email protected]. You do not have to send copies of your e-mail to our other e-mail addresses.

We look forward to reading your work and working with you.
