Welcome to the CHP website

Welcome to the Crawford House Publishing Australia website. We hope you find what you are looking for, and if you have any problems or queries about the website please email us here.


Please do not e-mail your submission and in particular do not send any attachments to us via e-mail. Send your submission by conventional post.

Include a stamped, self-addressed envelope/Postpak if you would like your submission material returned. Failure to do so will result in the material being re-cycled after our appraisal.

Your submission should be single-sided on A4 paper, double-spaced, 40 mm margins and unbound. Please provide:
  • A paragraph that outlines your ability/authority to write on your chosen topic.
  • A paragraph describing your target audience and why you think this is a timely project worthy of publication.
  • A paragraph listing similar books in print and what makes yours unique.
  • A paragraph on how you think it could be promoted and any industry or media contacts that would help us to market your book.
  • A 400 word synopsis, a list of chapter headings and a brief indication of chapter contents.
  • One to two sample chapters. We prefer the introduction and/or chapter one.
Please allow approximately eight weeks for the appraisal process to occur. You will be notified of the outcome by mail.

Ensure that you retain the original copy of all the submission material that you send to us. Crawford House publishing takes all possible care with submissions but bears no responsibility for the loss or damage of unsolicited materials received.
