Prospective authors

If you are interested in becoming a Hammersmith Books author please do contact us at [gmb@hammersmithpress.co.uk] taking the following into account:

  • We principally publish books for people with specific health conditions that give practical advice which goes beyond or challenges mainstream thinking.
  • We publish books that relate only to health.
  • We do NOT publish fiction.
  • We are a small, independent organisation; this means we cannot pay large advances.
  • In the first instance we would like to see a proposal that includes the following:
    • Why your book is needed and people will want to read it
    • How your book compares to any others on the same topic
    • Why you are the right person to be writing it and what sort of following you currently have – you can tell us about you using our Author Questionnaire
    • Proposed contents list with a description of what each chapter/section will include
    • Sample section(s)
