Publishing ‘twisty’ fiction, but always on the lookout for something that Wows them with a Northern focus, e.g. author, setting, …
In their own words…
When did you start publishing?
Hideaway Fall opened for business with the publication of Broken Branches in Spring 2017.
What made you want to start an independent publisher?
We leapt onto the indie publishing scene after founder and author M Jonathan Lee launched Hideaway Fall to help northern authors get published in an industry that is so often focussed on London.
What genres do you specialise in?
So far we’ve published predominantly contemporary fiction but in submissions we’re just looking for something that takes our breath away. Twists, turns, cliff-hangers, sucker punch endings… nothing much!
Where are you based?
We’re based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire in a Business Village full of independent entrepreneurs.
Do you have a submission window, if so when?
At the moment we’re open to submissions all year round. If you’ve got a twisty-turny book with northern flair then we want to hear about it!
What is your submission procedure?
Start by pitching us your idea at www.hideawayfall.com/book-submission and if we like the sound of it, we’ll be in touch!
Who are you (team photo if possible)?
If you’ve ever spoken to us on social media, by email or simply appreciated one of her bookish memes on Twitter, you will have met our lovely front-of-house Communications Officer, Holly.
Background in the book industry?
Jonathan had been previously published by another company but had been dissatisfied with the impersonality of the system and its marketing efforts. Still continuing to write, he decided to set up Hideaway Fall with his close friend, Sarah, in 2017. Holly then joined the team in Summer 2020 following the completion of her English Literature degree.
Talk about some of your books if possible?
Our most recent publication is 337, which has also just been released as our very first audiobook! It has so far been very well received and we look forward to producing more for future projects. Give it a listen here (Audible link).
