What royalties do you pay?

Our royalty rates are based on the standards published by the Australian Society of Authors.

How can I submit my book to Rhiza Press?

Please refer to our submissions page for further information. We will only consider submissions that follow our guidelines so please make sure you read them carefully.

Do you take unsolicited manuscripts?

Yes, Rhiza Connect takes unsolicited manuscripts as well as those from agented authors.

How long will it take you to respond?

Turnaround time for return of submissions is between 3 and 6 months.

If my book is accepted, how long before it is published?

It generally takes at least 12 months from date of acceptance to date of publication. Traditional publishing is not a quick route to seeing your book in print. It takes time to ensure your finished book is the best it can be, which involves editing, rewriting and design.

How do you find the right publisher for my book?

It is important to find the right publisher for your book. To make sure your book is a good fit for our publishing house, please read ‘What we are looking for’. If your book does not relate to one of those areas, please don’t submit it to us. If you have written a children’s book, your submission should be sent to Wombat Books (which has its own submission guidelines).
You should also review the books we have already published as this will help you understand the style and types of books we want to publish in the future.

Can you provide help for me to self publish my book?

No. We are a royalty-paying publishing house and cannot assist you with self-publishing.
