The Hookline Novel Competition is no more

Instead we have moved to a more nimble process. 

There is no timeline nor a submission fee. However to ensure that writers submit only their very best work, we will accept only one manuscript each year from any writer.

The rules are simple: writers should submit the first three chapters of their novel and a very brief synopsis. We will assign it to an interested book group and profile it on our 'Discover new authors' page. If readers like the work, we will ask for the complete manuscript. Writers who receive a thumbs up will be offered an ebook contract. Those who receive a resounding thumbs up will have their work published in paperback and ebook format. 

To submit a manuscript, please fill out the form below and email the first three chapters of your work and a brief blurb: editor@hooklinebooks.com

Please complete this before emailing your manuscript
