So you’re at that stage. You’ve finished a novel and are ready to have it published. Many congrats.

Now it’s time to reach out to agents and publishers to try and land the much-coveted deal.

Is it difficult to land a publishing deal? Hell yeah. But easier now than it has ever been, what with the birth of a multitude of brilliant indie publishing houses over recent years. But still, your manuscript will have to be in great nick, and – even moreso when it comes to first impressions – you’ll need to get your submission package bang on the money.

After all, agents and publishing houses deal with up to 500 submissions a day, so you need to make sure yours stands out.

I can help you with that.

“Working with David is always a fantastic experience. He cuts through the gristle"

– Critically-acclaimed author MR Mackenzie

Mostly – though not exclusively – agents and publishing houses will be expecting you to submit a cover letter, a synopsis and the first 10,000-words (or first three chapters) of your novel.

I’ll show you how you can perfect each of those key components and will ensure you have – at hand – the perfect submission that will generate your best chances of landing a publishing deal.

Aside from that, I will also include a contacts list sheet for anybody who seeks this service from me. It will include the email addresses of all publishing houses and agents that will suit your genre of writing. You’re welcome!

Considering the service provided here, the prices below are extremely fair. That’s my congratulations to you for finishing your debut novel.

Service Cost
Agent/Publisher Full submission package feedback and editing (includes cover letter, synopsis and first 10,000-words) £179
Agent/Publisher Lite submission package feedback (includes cover letter and synopsis) £69
