Unsolicited manuscripts with Asian, particularly Southeast Asian, themes are welcomed from agents as well as published and unpublished authors.

• Please include with your submission an outline of your work, a brief bio and a list of three comparative titles in the market.

• We accept partial and full manuscripts but we prefer the latter.

• We are currently not accepting poetry for publication, sorry.

Please allow Monsoon’s editorial team 8 weeks to evaluate your submission. If you do not hear from anybody within 8 weeks, please email us. Monsoon Books does not offer a manuscript appraisal service. Due to the large number of submissions we receive, we are unable to offer a critique of rejected submissions. There are plenty of specialist manuscript appraisal agencies available, most of which have an online presence and can be found using regular internet search engines.
