TELL US ABOUT YOUR BOOK

Slider

We welcome new book proposals from authors. Our core publishing areas are finance, investment, economics, business and marketing, but we do consider any non-fiction proposals.

In the first instance, please send a brief email to commissioning@harriman-house.com, giving the title and subtitle of your book, a synopsis of 250 words, a brief outline of the need for the book and a short biography. If we require further information, we will ask you to complete and submit the book proposal form, which can be downloaded below. All proposals are treated in the strictest confidence.

The purpose of the book proposal form is to allow us to find out about the aims, goals and main features of your book. You will be asked to provide information about the target market, existing works that will compete with your book, and how you will be able to work with us to promote the book once published.

We would normally expect to reply to all book proposals within four weeks. This allows enough time for our commissioning panel to make an assessment. We will also confirm receipt of your proposal within one week, so if you do not hear from us in that time then please get in touch again, as we may not have received your first message.

We look forward to hearing from you.
