What books and authors do you prefer?

We are highly selective in what projects we take on, concentrating on authoritative authors who have outstanding credentials, recognized voices or high profiles and who can write with flair and passion.  

We are looking for original, important or influential ideas; topical or provocative arguments;  good stories – backed up with solid analysis and research; and creative writing that opens up new worlds for general readers.

It also helps if you can demonstrate a need for your book and convince us of its international appeal and backlist potential.

We take on established authors as well as new writers, liaising closely with them all to give inspiration, advice and support from pitch to publication and beyond.

We do not deal with poetry or screenplays, although we are willing to consider fiction and children's books.
