Vertu Publishing is both a boutique traditional publishing house and a full-service developmental resource for writers of all genres.

Vertu Publishing is currently accepting unsolicited manuscripts in the fiction space only. At this time, we will consider works of fiction written for audiences ranging from young adult through adult. See our Publish With Us page for more information.

*Please note - Using our developmental services in no way guarantees your book will be accepted for publication by VP or any other publisher.

Written with a Reason

Do we accept unsolicited manuscripts?

Yes, we are happy to accept unsolicited manuscripts for consideration. And because we believe in the creative process and think authors should have the right to manage their own careers if they so choose, we DO NOT require agent representation.

We want you to be published as badly as you do, so the developmental resources we offer are designed to radically improve your chances (whether you choose to submit your work to Vertu Publishing or not). Why? Because rejection letters are no fun for anybody.

Is your book ready to be published?

Competition is fierce in the publishing world. Before you submit your manuscript for consideration with any publisher (Vertu included), it’s highly recommended that you take practical steps to put your best foot forward.

Unfortunately, not every manuscript is publishable, and rejection letters are a sad-but-true part of what we do. So, to minimize the number of sad letters we have to write, and to give authors an edge on their competition no matter where they submit their work, we encourage all authors to explore development of each manuscript prior to submission.
