At Hookline Books all our fiction is chosen for publication by book clubs and serious readers.
We consult with book clubs in choosing the novels that go to print. Book clubs or individual readers who love fiction and would like to participate in reading Hookline manuscripts can view the "Discover new authors" page.
Genre vary from literary to crime to historical, romance, young adult and fantasy.
We accept manuscripts only from students and graduates of MA creative writing courses - new writers who have sacrificed time and money to improve their fiction.
To help decide the novels we should put to print, we consult with book clubs from around the UK.

Out in April 2017:
Hear Me by Julia North
After yet another shameful one-night stand Lissa has to accept that her sisters are right – she is an alcoholic and it’s time for rehab. She hates the idea of therapy, doesn’t want to examine her past, but just as she begins to see reasons for her drinking, life takes a brutal turn. Who are her fellow patients? Why is one of them so damned perfect?
Hear Me is a powerful story about life and death, addiction and sobriety, racism and the fight for justice – but above all it is a story about love.
