Prospective Authors

Lion Hudson is committed to publishing books true to the Christian faith and welcomes submissions that fit our imprints. Learn more about us here.

Please familiarise yourself with our books before sending us your submission. This will give you a better idea if your manuscript would be suitable for us. If the genre you have in mind does not appear on our site, then unfortunately it’s not the right fit for us.

Please note we do not accept manuscripts for poetry.

Please also be aware that Lion Fiction has decided to pause with respect to commissioning fiction for adults until the end of 2023.

We are also no longer accepting publication proposals or typescripts that are sent to us by post.

We want to encourage you to be inspired by the Spirit and to write as well as to read books. However, please note that our publishing programme is full for the next two years (which is normal for most publishers).

Please also be aware that “commissioning” in the Christian book category generally means that we approach an author with a concept or idea and then commission a book rather than discovering a new commission amongst unsolicited manuscripts. It is very rare that we would publish an unsolicited manuscript. We receive over 400 unsolicited manuscripts per annum.
