A Gill Books Publishing Opportunity

***Please note, there has been an uptick in publishers that are not accepting unagented submissions. Too many presses and publishers are getting mass submissions that do not fit their catalogs. DO NOT submit your work if it doesn’t fit the publisher’s guidelines.

Gill Books is one of Ireland’s leading publishers of content in terms of both the Primary and Secondary schools market, but they also publish nonfiction for adults. They accept proposals for adult nonfiction and children’s books.

Gill books does not accept the following: adult fiction, poetry, short stories, or plays. So please do not send them any submissions in these writing forms.

They are a division of Gill Education and based out of Dublin. This publisher has excellent distribution within Ireland and focuses on books with Irish interests in mind, although they also publish books outside of that scope. They have a committed marketing team and editorial staff.

To get a good feel for what they are currently publishing, please visit their catalog here. Do not submit unless you feel like your book fits with what they have published before.

They ask that all proposals include the following components:

  • A descriptive outline or synopsis of the work highlighting any unique features (not more than 500 words)
  • A table of contents or chapter outline
  • Two sample chapters
  • A brief author’s biography, with reference to your qualifications for writing the book and the connection to your potential audience

Good luck to all of you who choose to submit. I’ve got my fingers crossed for you.
