Getting a foot in the door of the publishing world is notoriously difficult. Often, writers are kept outside not because their work is flawed in some deep way, but because they are missing a few little things that publishers immediately notice.
Open only during brief windows each year, our "Publishing Concierge" service gives you a publisher's eye view of your book so far. We'll show you both the strengths and the weaknesses, and help you discover opportunities in your work that you may have missed.
Send your work into our senior editors, and you will receive a forthright document designed to help you get your work commercially published and identify what impediments there might be for you to overcome and how you can build upon your strengths.
Depending on your current progress and level of commitment, our experienced commercial publishers can either show you the path, or walk with you side by side as you journey towards becoming a contracted and published author in 2021.
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.
Exisle Publishing and EK Books are boutique, traditional publishers who accept authors on merit only and pay our authors a competitive, industry-standard royalties. We typically receive thousands of submissions per year, yet publish only about 20 non-fiction and 12 children's titles annually. This means we are unable to respond to the majority of people who send manuscripts to us.
Being a "Publishing Concierge" service puts you in direct contact with the very editors who make editorial decisions at Exisle and EK Books. While this does not guarantee we will publish your book, we do allow all Exisle Academy customers to skip the queue and receive clear answers and detailed feedback - if we feel something isn't working, we'll explain to you why and give you the steps you need to correct it. This is one of the reasons why several Academy students have gone on to receive publishing contracts with Exisle Publishing and EK Books - you become part of our extended family as soon as you register as a student.
