We’re always on the lookout for exciting projects by both new or established authors and illustrators.
We publish books for children 3 to 12 years old. We’re looking for creative, out of the box stories and illustrations. As a rule, we stay away from books with issues that are overtly didactic. As an editorial line, know that our taste leans away from the reigning moral realism.
We get a lot of approaches, so we try to reply to all submissions within 3 months, but sometimes we may fall short. Our 2018 list is already close and we are slowly collecting works that we’ll consider for 2019.
We only acquire world rights in all languages, so if your book is already published in another country or language, it won’t work for us.
Please make all submission by email, including copies of any supporting visual material. You should also send a short covering letter containing all relevant information about you and your work.
Send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word SUBMISSION TO SYNCRETIC on the subject. Our preferred format is Word or PDF
For Illustrators, our server has a hard time if you send very large files. Please send us links to material or to websites.
Please don’t be too disappointed if we reject your work or don’t respond! We’re a small company and can only publish a few new books each year, so do try other publishers and agents: publishing is a hugely subjective business. We wish you luck!
