Honest Publishing is a British independent book publisher of both fiction and non-fiction. Founded by three friends in 2010, the company strives to publish alternative, original voices, and to provide an audience for unique writers neglected by the mainstream.

UPDATE - As of 24 August 2017, we are open for submissions. Hit us with your best shots.




Have anything original, sublime, ballsy, raw, bold, surreal, different, revolutionary or just plain fantastical to get off your chest? Let us know. Tips:


  • Are we for you? Before submitting, please check out the books we've already published. Like every small press, we have a certain niche.
  • While we'll do everything our resources allow to push your work, author involvement is key when it comes to selling your book. We'd love to hear any ideas you have to promote or market your work.
  • For novels or novellas, send no more than three chapters.
  • Submitting poetry? Please send a minimum of five poems.
  • We dig short stories as well. Send us a maximum of four!


Please allow 50 days for a reply. Good luck!

Note: Work submitted outside Submittable will not be considered.
