At the head of your synopsis please put your:

  • Your contact details.

Also include any previous publishing history and who you think your book will appeal to.

  • Your manuscript should be laid out as double-spaced, Times New Roman font 12, with 2.54cm margins all around. – PDF or Word Doc or Word Docx – 
  • If you cannot submit in this format we will not be able to assess your work.
  • We are currently taking 2-6 weeks to assess submissions. We do not give comments on any manuscripts we reject but we do contact each author who submits their work to us.
  • We do not charge an assessment or reading fee.
  • If we are interested in representing you we will advise if that is in a hybrid (cost-share or author funded) manner or if we would be prepared to enter into a traditional publishing model that sees us taking a commission on royalties.

*Please note: The Leschenault Press and The Book Reality Experience accepts all genres for review, but we retain the right to not proceed with projects we find are inflammatory, racist, sexist or otherwise offensive. Any decision to not proceed is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

“As an already published author, I was looking to have more control over the publication and marketing process with my second book… I chose [Book Reality] to publish my second novel, frenzship. I have been delighted with the service which can be end-to-end covering the whole publication, registration and marketing process or just assistance with various aspects of the process if you want to do more yourself. I unreservedly commend Ian Andrew and the Book Reality Experience to anyone looking for an independent publishing facilitator.”
