Send us a Sample

Email info@shadowandstar with a sample of your completed manuscript. Please make sure you attach a 1,ooo word synopsis along with the first three chapters of your story. Arial font, size 12 and double spacing is preferred. In your cover email, ensure you include you full name, pen name if applicable, postal address, telephone number, details of your writing experience and the word count for the completed manuscript.

Our Review

Our initial team will aim to review your manuscript within six weeks because we hate to keep authors waiting! If it appeals, they will request a copy of the full manuscript to be passed to our editorial team for consideration. We are looking for fresh stories which we can do justice to. Please note personal feedback cannot be provided. If accepted, an editor will work with you to agree on the way forward with editing and formatting.


We utilise print on demand and ebook services to get your book on the market as quickly as possible once your manuscript is ready. Production will always include paid online advertising and initial reader feedback to make sure your book is given the attention it deserves. We believe in a 50/50 royalty split because we're in this together! Royalties are paid every six months to allow time for accurate reporting.
