We welcome submissions sent directly by authors and thank you for considering Myriad. Before you do, please take a few minutes to explore the website and read about the other books we’ve published to be sure yours would fit with the general style and themes of our list.

We publish no more than ten books each year, and choose very selectively. Our aim is to publish excellent writing and great stories that offer new ways of seeing. We publish contemporary and historical literary fiction, and crime, especially psychological and political thrillers. Our graphic books encompass a diverse selection of viewpoints and frequently express unconventional and controversial opinions. They span a variety of genres including memoir, Graphic Medicine, documentary comics and fiction.

• We are currently experiencing a high volume of submissions and cannot accept any new submissions at present •

How to submit
If you feel your book might suit our list, please tell us why by email ( and attach a synopsis as well as either the complete manuscript of your novel in MS Word or, for a graphic book, a sample PDF (no larger than 10MB) and a link to the complete work.

We do not accept paper submissions and cannot return any materials posted to us.

We regret that we are no longer able to offer feedback on manuscripts if you are unsuccessful. But please remember that our decision is not necessarily a reflection on your work but simply a judgement based on what suits our list.

Currently we do not publish young adult fiction, horror, science fiction or fantasy, short stories or poetry. We do not reissue books that have been previously published or self-published (in print or as ebooks).

We are also happy to receive submissions from agents.
