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

We are currently accepting manuscripts in the Christian space. Our authors write fiction, non-fiction, young reader stories, children's books and reference material.

Written with a Reason

Do we accept unsolicited manuscripts?

Yes, we are happy to accept unsolicited manuscripts for consideration, but we highly recommend that authors take advantage of the resources we’ve made available here prior to submission.

We want you to be published as badly as you do, so the 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 have dedicated a component of our publishing house to author preparation.

Pre-Submission Reviews

Pre-submission reviews are exactly what they seem – often called an editorial letter, we’ll conduct a thorough review of your manuscript and make professional recommendations about what it needs to really sing

Wordsmithing is an art, and many writers can string a beautiful sentence and still fall victim to passive voice, or a dropped word, or an incorrect verb tense, or a dangling participle.

Developmental Editing

Are you having trouble bringing your concept full circle? Maybe you have a great vision for your book, but your manuscript is choppy or disorganized. Or, maybe, you have a manuscript, but you need help bridging gaps. That’s where developmental editing comes into play.

Paid Reviews

It’s no secret that book reviews are of vital importance to readers –which makes them vitally important to authors too. An eloquent, well-written book review can be invaluable to an author who’s trying to increase his or her credibility and visibility in a specific genre.
