Black & White Publishing was founded in 1995 and is now one of the largest Scottish publishers. They currently have over 200 books in print.  They are based in Scotland but they are open to publishing work by authors of any nationality or current geographic location.

They have good distributor and are starting to break into the eBook publishing world. They publish general non-fiction, biography, sports, and humor, as well as selected fiction, crime novels, young adult, and children’s books.

They are currently accepting both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts that are fiction, non-fiction and young adult. They have published a number of established authors of various nationalities. Their covers are generally well designed and appealing

They prefer receiving submissions by email but are open to submissions by post. Attach to your email (that contains a query letter) a detailed synopsis outlining the whole manuscript and the first three chapters or first 30 pages of your manuscript. Attachments should all be word documents. The words NEW SUBMISSION should be in the subject field.

They try to respond to all queries within three months. If you have not heard from them by that time you must assume that your work has been rejected.
