KRP publishes historical fiction and historical romance, any story set in an era prior to 1960 is acceptable. We also publish medieval fantasy. We do not publish science fiction. We do not publish fantasy with children and/or animal protagonists. We do not publish novels that involve any aspects of time travel.
We welcome the submission of a well-written, detailed synopsis and the first three chapters of completed manuscripts directly from authors.
Authors who are represented by agents should have the agent submit the manuscript on behalf of the author. Agented submissions by the author will not be accepted.
We do not accept proposals or incomplete manuscripts.
Before submitting the first three sample chapters, we encourage you to ensure that your writing is of publishable standard.
Regrettably, due to the high volume of submissions we receive, we are unable to respond to authors whose manuscripts we decide not to pursue. If you have not heard back from us within two to three weeks, we have decided not to pursue your submission.
Knox Robinson Publishing does not accept follow-up submission enquiries via telephone or email. We wish that we could speak with each of you, but the volume of manuscripts we receive prevents us from doing so. We appreciate your interest in publishing with us and if your submission is not successful the first time, we encourage you to resubmit a different manuscript after a period of at least six months.
Knox Robinson Publishing does not accept submissions made by mail/post or fax.
All submissions must be made via email using the address firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to continue accepting unsolicited and unagented manuscripts, we require that authors strictly adhere to our rules for submitting manuscripts. These rules enable us to maintain a system whereby each synopsis and sample chapter is read by an editor.
We require that you submit a questionnaire along with your synopsis and sample chapters.
Click on the following link to download the questionnaire:
*Please note that the questionnaire will open as a Word document in your browser, save a copy on your desktop and then complete the form.
Submissions without the questionnaire will not be considered.
- Your email should clearly state the genre and title in the heading, ex. Historical Fiction - "The One Who Walked Away"
- The body of your email should contain a letter of introduction explaining why you wish to become a KRP author and a short summary of your novel
- Email attachments should be as follows: synopsis, three sample chapters and the questionnaire
- The synopsis and three sample chapters should be in .doc format, 12 point Times New Roman font, double-spaced
