Write for a Reason

Submitting a Proposal

Congratulations on finishing your novel – many people think about it, but you have done it!

If you would like to send in a book proposal to Dernier Publishing, please bear in mind the following points:

  • We only publish full-length novels that will encourage and inspire our readers in the Christian faith.
  • We publish chapter books for children 6+, teens and young adults.
  • We are unable to publish more than a small proportion of the manuscripts that are sent to us.
  • Due to the number of manuscripts we receive and time constraints, we are unable to comment on stories sent to us. If you would like a professional criticism of your manuscript, we may be able to point you in the direction of someone who can help you.
  • Reading a selection of our books before you submit your own manuscript will give you an idea of what Dernier is all about!

Please send submissions to us as a hard copy by post to the address below.  Your proposal needs to  include the first three chapters of your novel, a synopsis of the story, final word count, and details of who you are writing for. Please also include some information about yourself: previous publications, church background and any other relevant information. Please also include an SAE so we can reply to you. Thank you! We look forward to hearing from you. 🙂

Dernier Publishing, PO Box 793, Orpington, BR6 1FA, United Kingdom
