Manuscript Submissions

Even though Love & Write is a self publishing business, we are very selective on what products we release as we only want to release quality products to the market that are commercially viable and make money for the author.

Before we take you on, we would ask that you submit a manuscript proposal. Please carefully read and follow our submission guidelines below:


Love & Write Publishing will accept submissions in the practical mind body spirit/wellness genres. We will work with you to find the best package that delivers you the product at the right price.

We are a company that likes to publish books that make a difference, but we must take on and publish books that make commercial sense for the author too so they don't waste their money.

Having run Rockpool Publishing for 11 years we can assist authors in finding that commercial balance within a product.

Please read the following guidelines carefully before you submit to us. 

Your hard copy proposal should include:

  1. A clear and concise cover letter including date and your contact details.
  2. Author/business credentials-1 page.
  3. Short synopsis + Table of contents.
  4. 1-2 sample chapters - Please do not send original artwork, please can you number each page of the manuscript.
  5. Brief overview of market research, target audience, marketing ideas (please do look in bookshops and online to see if a similar book has been published, we are interested in how your book is different to what is already out there).
  6. If you wish to have your submission returned, please include a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Otherwise, clearly state in your cover letter instructions to discard.


  1. Before making your submission, we would appreciate if you could take a look at our previously published books or cards to gain an understanding of the type of books we are interested in, and if we have already published a book in your topic area then please think about why your book would be good for the reader if there are many books already published on the topic.
  2. Keep it brief and to the point.

We Love

  1. Practical mind body spirit books, cards
  2. Originality in subject matter and writing
  3. A submission that demonstrates your writing ability at its best

Tips: You should have researched the market completely and know the competition in the genre, or topic area. You should point out why your book will sell and what differentiates it from the competition.
