We accept submissions for:
True crime, memoirs, biographies, essays or collections on a theme, Australian social and military history, Australiana, sport, photographic books, graphic novels / memoirs, and fiction.
With fiction, we are looking for compelling stories in a range of genres, with a preference for works in commercial genres such as crime, romance, personal growth, historical, and new adult.
Do your homework
Before submitting a manuscript or proposal to Echo Publishing, please do some research. Familiarise yourself with the genres we publish and if there are existing titles that have something in common with your book, it’s helpful to mention them as a point of reference.
If your submission doesn’t fit any of these categories but you’re familiar with the style of books we publish and think your project might interest us anyway, you can always email with a query and we’ll let you know promptly if we think otherwise.
All submissions should be double-spaced, in a readable 12-point font, with numbered pages. It is also important to ensure that your name and address are on the manuscript itself, as well as in your proposal/synopsis.
Include with your manuscript:
Submissions can be emailed with attachments via our Contact Us page.
Or posted to:
The Editorial Coordinator

If your initial submission looks promising, we will be in touch to follow up and may request more chapters to read, or more samples.
Unfortunately, due to the high volume of submissions, we are unable to give specific feedback on your manuscript or suggest ways in which it might be improved. We are also unable to respond to queries by telephone, so please don’t call to check on the progress of your submission.
We cannot return posted submissions.
We are OK with you making multiple submissions to publishers rather than waiting for our response, but please let us know in your cover letter if this is your intention. We endeavour to respond within three months of receipt of submissions but this is dependent on the number awaiting review at any given time.
