Bain Press Publishing


Unlike most contemporary publishing houses we will consider non-commissioned submissions.

We look carefully at everything that is sent to us but we are a small outfit with a high reputation and we do not have enough resources to respond individually to every submission.


Please do not send submissions by email; they will be rejected automatically. Just send us the first 3 chapters of your writing plus synopsis addressed to The Editor, Bain Press, Bainfield, Goulceby, Louth LN11 9UB.

Submissions should be clearly labelled with your full name and contact details, written in English, typed, double line-spaced with numbered pages. If you haven't heard from us within three months please assume that we have decided not to take your submission further. If you wish your work to be returned, please also enclose SAE with correct postage attached.

Bain Press does not accept responsibility for delivery of manuscripts returned by post or the result of insufficient postage costs.

We are interested in more than one genre but if you are unsure whether your particular work would suit our list please e-mail your query before submitting it to us, click here for our contact page.

‘Scotland Yard calls in Big Bill Thompson’

Bill Thompson is building a new career for himself as a private detective in 1940s central London when an important Arab’s visit leads to his summons to the Foreign Office. A simple enquiry based on his Middle Eastern wartime experience and a former client’s recommendation lead to his most exciting case to date. Undeterred by violence and abduction, Thompson investigates in league with Scotland Yard who have a particularly awkward murder to solve. Thompson pursues his quarry to the surprising end, ably supported by his loyal and endearing assistant Nelly.
