Harbour Publishing House (HPH) sees its mission as publishing the best, most innovative work across a range of genre. We draw on the strengths of the traditional publishing model and marry it with the current dynamic digital environment. As an independent publisher, we aim to be nimble, creative and offer the reading public a product they cannot find elsewhere in the market.

Specifically, we are looking for:
Commercial fiction - thriller, crime, historical, humour, fantasy
Literary fiction and non-fiction - novels, and narrative non-fiction only
Children's books and young adult - picture books, junior and middle grade fiction, young adult/crossover fiction
Commercial non-fiction - history, memoir, mind body spirit, travel, health, diet, biography, cooking, photography

We do not publish category romance, scripts, plays or poetry in Australia and will not assess them.
Our team endeavours to respond to all submissions within four weeks of receipt. However, this is not always possible due to the volume of submissions. Please do not send hard copies of your work. Any unsolicited hard copies will not be read or returned.

Any emails with dubious attachments (such as viruses) will be left unopened and deleted.

Authors agree that all submitted work is entirely their own and does not infringe on the copyright of any other works. Copyright of all work submitted remains entirely the property of the author, unless otherwise stated in writing by all parties. The author indemnifies the publisher against any suit or legal action brought by any person or entity in regard to the contents or themes of the works submitted.
