Bad Apple Press welcomes unsolicited manuscripts! However, we are full up for 2022! Please check back to see when we will be opening for manuscript submissions again.

We have a day put aside each week to receive all submissions and that day is Thursday. So if you have a submission you would like to send us, please send on a Thursday.

We consider non-fiction manuscript proposals on all topics but our special interests are: memoir, family relationships, biographies, humour, health and fitness, lifestyle and psychology. We are primarily interested in publishing and promoting local authors.

To submit, please send a brief email summarising the book to our editor, Samantha Miles

This summary should include:

  • a synopsis
  • at least one chapter sample or the full manuscript if it is completed
  • a contents list
  • a few paragraphs on who it is for and how it differs from other books in this area
  •  some background on yourself and your qualifications for writing the book
  • possible markets for your book.

As you can appreciate we do receive a number of manuscript submissions. If your proposal is of interest to us we will contact you. Please do not send follow up emails or phone calls. We would love to offer feedback on all submissions received but as we are a small office we just do not have the time. However, be assured that if we feel your manuscript is one we would like to have on our list we will be in contact!

We also offer custom publishing services. If you or your organisation have a manuscript that you would like professionally produced and packaged, please see our information at Custom Publishing.
