Fiction as therapy illustration

We are a member of the Independent Publishing Guild.

We publish for Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult Fiction and non- fiction in print, audio, ebook and for the bibliotherapy service, as ZunTold Living Books. ZunTold Living Books are also an opportunity for publishers and authors to distribute their existing work to a new audience.

Please contact us at elaine@zuntold.com to discuss.

We love all genres and have a particular interest in fiction to support empathy and good mental health and wellbeing.

We love contemporary fiction and poetry, historical fiction, fantasy, magical realism and just about anything as long as it has depth. We like books that stand the test of time. The books we take on must have substance.

Our authors are award winning writers or have been nominated for leading literary awards. Amongst them are Kate Wiseman, Miriam Halahmy, Samuel Pollen and Anna Bowles.

We are interested in launching new and diverse voices and nurturing writers at an early stage of their career. Twice a year we open our door to non -agented writers (June and December). Un-agented authors can submit a synopsis and first three chapters to elaine@zuntold.com but only during the month of December and June. Please note that we can't look at work outside of these windows.

We work with agents also.

If you are an agent and would like to submit to us, please email a synopsis and manuscript to elaine@zuntold.com .
