“Too many beautifully written books are rejected on a regular basis because the submitting author doesn’t have a strong enough author platform. The barriers for authors are getting higher and the publishing industry less discerning and more unscrupulous. By operating a hybrid publishing model, Cranthorpe Millner can invite authors to publish with us based on the merit of the manuscript alone.”
Cranthorpe Millner say it is important to them that every author they ultimately choose to offer a publishing agreement to knows that they give all of the authors a traditional house experience. Every author receives traditional distribution and an experienced editorial and production team, while allowing the author to retain full ownership of the project.
We endeavour to respond to every author who submits a manuscript to us within three weeks, even if it’s bad news. If they wish to work with you, you will be contacted by their Acquisitions team to discuss the terms they would like to offer you. They stress all of their authors receive editing, copywriting, distribution and marketing & PR services.
