MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION

Quiller Publishing is an independent publisher of a large range of subjects, including country, sporting and equestrian titles. Our titles are written by talented and enthusiastic authors who are widely acclaimed as experts in their field. Our strength in publishing lies in that we have a large and successful backlist – we don’t publish books that are here today and gone tomorrow. Please take time to view the books we publish so you can be sure your book would fit within our range of titles.

We welcome submissions and suggestions so if you have an idea and would like to discuss this with us, please do contact us at Quiller Publishing, either by letter, email or by phone.
