Below are Our Submission Guidelines. Please read them carefully before submitting your manuscript to us. We do not publish picture books or children's stories, only adult paperbacks in black & white and full colour book cover. We offer both gloss and matt book cover in full colour and a choice of white or creme paper. Manuscripts must be at least 20,000 words to be considered for publishing. Most importantly, manuscripts must be well-edited and publish-ready before being submitted to us. 


We will not be held liable for any defamation, slander, plagiarism or copyright breaches by authors, as we do not carry out content checks, apart from formatting for printing and publication purposes. Please note that we do not accept books promoting terrorism or pornography. By  emailing your manuscript, you agree to all the terms of publication as contained in this website. Canaan-Star Publishing reserves the right to change the book price and to cancel any contract at any time.


Email your ready-to-publish manuscript in word document only to enable us add your ISBN number and format for publishing.


If you already have a book cover or image, then send it to us and we will use it. Otherwise, we can design an individual book cover for you. Your book cover should be sent along with your manuscript in separate files and not as a single email attachment. Send your book back-cover blurb separately, which is the information we will use to distribute your book.


In your email, put as your subject: Submissions, Book Title, Author name, Cover type, paper colour.  So example: Submissions, Night Flies by James S Smith, Gloss cover, creme. Remember to send your back blurb and cover image, if you have one, as separate files. Please type your full email address below your name.
