About Gemma Halliday Publishing

We are a small, boutique publisher of quality women's genre fiction who work with a select number of authors per year. Our publishing model is a hybrid between the benefits of traditional publishing and the freedoms of indie, or self-publishing. We are a full service publisher and never charge authors any fees, meaning our authors start earning royalties from their very first sale. We work closely with our authors on all aspects of publication, while employing a team of professional editors, artists, and marketing & sales force to ensure maximum quality and distribution for our readers.

Are you open to submissions?
We do not take unsolicited submissions from unagented authors at this time. Because we strive to maintain a small, hands-on approach to publishing, we only work with a select group of authors. Submissions are by invitation only at this time.
Do you pay royalties?
Yes. We pay authors royalties on a sliding scale depending on total number of units sold.
Do you charge any fees?
No. Unlike a vanity press, we cover all costs of editing, cover art, marketing, sales, and registering your ISBN information.
Do you accept all manuscripts submitted to you?
No. Because we are a small, boutique publisher we can only take on a select number of authors who we feel represent the type of quality books our readers look for.
Are your books available in print?
Yes. In most cases, ebook and POD Trade Paperback versions of books will be released simultaneously. Print books will be widely available in online retailers, and through special order to libraries and physical bookstores.
Are your print books returnable?
Sometimes. If you are an independent bookseller wishing to stock our books, please contact us for information about our returnable titles or for discounted wholesale pricing. We are happy to work within your budget and business model!
