You've come far by yourself: You've come up with the idea, and spent hours, days, months and maybe even longer poring over each and every word.
But you know you're not quite where you want to be.
Perhaps you've sent your manuscript out to a few publishers, but you haven't heard back...
... Or maybe you just have a feeling that, in order to make your book as good as it could possibly be, you need some professional advice.
As a mainstream publisher with 30 years experience publishing successful books for adults and children, we're here to help.
Our premium manuscript review services gives you direct, one on one access to a senior member of our executive team who will work closely with you to help you realize the full potential of your book.
Exisle Publishing was founded in the early 1990s with the mission of giving a voice to writers whom the mainstream often overlooked.
Ironically, we've since become something of a mainstream publisher ourselves, with branches in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom, and a successful children's imprint, EK Books. But we haven't forgotten our roots, and our mission.
With Exisle Academy we want to guide people who have a message, who have something to say, but who may not yet have the knowledge, experience and industry contacts, along the path to making their book the success it deserves to be.
We will treat your book as if you were on author on our publishing schedule. The advice you get will be real, actionable, and no holds barred. Our goal is not to make you feel good - that's what your friends are for. Instead, our goal is to help you create the best book you possibly can: Something that you can truly call yours. Something to be proud of. Something that will last, and be read time and time again.
While this is unorthodox, this approach works—a recent Exisle Academy student just got her first publishing contract for her children's book, Cookie! Here's what some other students have said...
"I contacted the publisher lead you gave me and I followed your pitch process and things seem to be working! You're a legend!"

"Your advice about injecting craziness into the story, to have fun with it and build up on characterization, and to also allow for a more simple use of language, makes complete sense."

"I’d just like to say that I have never had such good, in-depth and motivational advice on my writing before, not even on the Creative Writing course, which was part of my BA hons degree with the [Major British University]."

When a current month is booked out, the payment buttons that read "Book Your Manuscript Review Now" will not be shown, and will instead be replaced with a clearly displayed "Sold Out" notice. For several months of the year this service may be unavailable for longer while our busy senior editors keep up with their regular publishing demands.
