Submissions closed for the moment ( from 15/01/15). We are overwhelmed by the quantity  of manuscripts offered!

We will start to look for submissions at the beginning of 2015.  Look at the books published here for an idea of direction. We will be searching for new writers worldwide. ( Though a sneaking preference will be  given to writers from Devon and Cornwall).  But from a loft in Manhattan to the popular quarter of Mumbai, we will look at everything. An account of a journey, small or large, would be interesting. Can you also mix fact, fiction, memoir, polemic, adventure, noir and humour in an original manner?  Robert Tressell out of William H Gass with a side of Damon Runyon would be ideal. Ability to self promote would also be useful. Profits will be minuscule, sales even smaller and for 2015 only one writer will be selected. SO WHATS STOPPING YOU?.  
(Send as word.doc Include at start of file bio details, story outline and ideas for promotion. Send to rorie@tantanbooks.co.uk)

UPDATE 1: Already received a seriously interesting selection.  Please keep them coming. Will reply to all and start to think about a selection early in 2015.  Sorry but  children's books and poetry aren't going to  make it. Short  stories only if they coalesce  into a whole. If you are serious you should also have a working knowledge of the books already published.  If your work is in the same area that is going to be very interesting. (Kindle price less than a glass of  wine!) See blog  for more detail.

UPDATE 2: Where  are the submissions  from Devon and Cornwall? Had submissions  from all over the  world - Afghanistan even. But so far nothing from the  region.  Surprising.
