As you can see from looking at this site, Alanna books is a small list with a very specific philosophy. We very occasionally consider submissions, but only those which fit our list especially well. Our few overworked and very busy staff are really busy editing and promoting our existing books, so we will not return manuscripts with comments or advice - sorry. You can submit via the Contact us page - no telephone calls please.
Our list is full up to 2019, so at present we are not accepting any submissions.
Advice We are often asked for advice from authors - the classic piece of advice is to read 1000 picture books before you write one (there's another rule for fiction but we don't know that because we don't publish fiction).
We suggest you research any publishing company (or agent) you make a submission to and only submit material which fits their list (this sounds obvious, but we're amazed at the amount of fiction we are sent considering we don't publish any).
Just because we (and similar companies) are small, does not mean we are 'uncommercial' - we are a publishing business, it's what we do, it's what we live on. So please don't send books that are "not commercial enough for the big publishers".
Finally, please read our books carefully - we try to publish inclusively, but we do not publish issue books. If you don't understand the difference, you probably need to do more research.
You can start your research here or here or here (this is a US site, so the references are American, but the information and advice are excellent). Specific advice on submitting manuscripts is here and here.
