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.

Do you charge any fees?
No. 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.
Do I need an agent to submit?
No. We welcome submission from un-agented authors and love working with those new to publishing.
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, though most likely not stocked on physical bookstore shelves.
Will you consider previously published backlist titles?
Yes! We are happy to consider books previously published in any format. Our acceptance of these works will be based on several factors, including past sales history.
