Publishers and Republishers of Remarkable Original Fiction

NOTES FOR AGENTS

What we’re after
We want your two or three best undeserved ‘failures’ of the year. Here we can only repeat what we are saying to authors: the best way to get a handle on the kind of thing we want is to look at our list of current and forthcoming reprints – read them if you don’t know them – and have a good read of our original titles. The next best way is to absorb our prejudices and our pleasures in the sections Books We Love - And Books We Hate.

One agent to whom we explained our wish-list commented: “I’m sure that you will be overwhelmed by agents sending you their very best failures. It is a sad fact that the beautifully crafted ... character-driven novel no longer has a place on mainstream publishers’ lists.”

We can’t afford to be overwhelmed, but we are always interested in real new talent that deserves the hearing no one else might give it.

E-mail us at publisher@firecrest-fiction.com in the first instance.
If you’ve had our mailing, feel free to write or phone.

Technical stuff
We will accept submissions only in electronic form. We can read 3.5in floppy disks, Zip disks, and CDs, formatted for PCs or Macs. We can read most current and some very ancient word-processing software, but vastly prefer Rich Text Format (RTF) or PDF files.

Like most agents, we reckon the first 100 pages, three chapters, or the first part of a novel are usually enough to make a fair judgement. If we like those, we'll ask to see the whole book. In declining a book we will always give honest reasons why we've done so, but please don't expect a lengthy critique.
