Information for authors

We can't always get a fortune in royalties. Neither do we all have huge publicity departments organising promotional events on our behalf. Even if royalties are enough, inspring the next generation of writers - or just improving literacy - is so important.

If we want to boost our income and/or our profile as authors, we need to do some work ourselves. And that’s where Contact an Author can help: our searchable database lets you advertise your availability for interviews, school-visits, events and writing work.

For a small annual fee, you get your own page within the site and have complete control over its content so you can change it as often as you like. You also benefit from our ongoing publicity campaign for the site such as emails to schools and print adverts in relevant magazines.
