Almost all Serpent’s Tail manuscripts come from literary agents, and this is our preferred method. While we can’t recommend an agent to you, a good place to start is The Writers and Artists Yearbook who provide great advice on submitting your work.
If you don’t have an agent, and would still like to send us your novel, you can try sending an email with some sample text (10 pages or the first chapter only please) and a short query (no more than 250 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to put SUBMISSION followed by the title of your novel in the subject line of your email. But beware: you will need to be very convincing and the writing will have to be outstanding to rise through the mires of our slush pile.
We will respond to all emailed queries, but due to the volume of submissions we receive it can take up to three months. Please do not call the office to check the status of your query. If you have not had a response after six weeks, please email to ask for an update.
