Red Axe Books Submissions

Welcome to Red Axe Books

We welcome submissions from anyone and will respond individually to everyone (especially unpublished writers), but we will only publish literature (novels, short stories, poems) which is radical in content or in style, or by previously unpublished authors. Or things we like or believe in. We will consider non-fiction of any sort which we feel is unusual and original, radical or different. We can provide editorial advice, a proof reading service, an ISBN and a full printing service. We take only our costs and 5% of any profits, thus maximizing profits for the writer.  We publish what we like and what we think is good.


All submissions must be by e-mail to


Please send us a synopsis of the whole novel and the first three chapters in one rtf file.

Short Stories

Please send us four of your best stories in one rtf file.


Please send us six of your best poems in one rtf file.

Non Fiction

Please send us a detailed chapter-by-chapter summary as well as a synopsis of your proposed work. The opening chapter should be included too: these can be sent in one e-mail in separate rtf flies.

We aim to respond to all submissions within one week.
