Heart of Albion
Advice for authors
The limited number of new titles appearing on the Heart of Albion web site may give the impression I am not commissioning many new titles. This is not true! While economic matters are generally challenging I am being more selective than usual about what I take on. But clearly I need to publish new books to keep going!
Heart of Albion titles are always written in an 'accessible' style, although this does not mean 'dumbed down'. When commissioning titles I send out an 'Advice to authors' document that outlines the preferred ways to develop ideas; guidance on the finer details of 'style', etc.; and otherwise makes the transition from your MS to final typeset as smooth as possible.

If you still think your ideas will interest me, please email the following:
I would much prefer you to contact me before you write the whole thing but, if it's already written, send only a synopsis and sample chapter for the attention of Bob Trubshaw. If I'm interested I'll then ask to see the rest. Believe me, all publishers only read the synopsis and a few pages before deciding whether or not a book fits in with their range.
