Carapace is an independent press specializing in contemporary commercial literary fiction. We are always looking for new writng so please head over to our submissions page if you’re a writer looking for some help taking your work to market. We particularly like quirky stuff that bends, blends and breaks genres.

We specialize in taking the load off new authors, working with the best editors on the planet today, cover designers who read your book and get it and we know every global channel to take your manuscript to book – that’s electronically, hard cover and paperback (and anything else you can think of). We’ll make sure your work leaves us perfect and beautiful, just how your readers will love it. And you too.

And we can help with your marketing – you just want to write, right? We know how to work the social networks, set up your launch party, virtual book tours and we can advise you on how to keep up your blog and identify guest blogging opportunities. And we understand how we can maximize the income on each sale for you, the author, the rights holder. We are writers ourselves and we know how pricing promotions work. We’ll get you up the bestseller lists, hell, we might even get you an award. Whatever, we’re here to hold your hand. And we like to hold tight. You’ll like it, we promise.

If you’d like to ask us any questions about who we are and what we do, please email us at: info@carapacebooks.co.uk.
