Rampart Books is the new kid on the block, and our aim is to be one of the top independent publishers within the UK by delivering excellent commercial fiction, especially crime and mystery fiction in its many genres. We will also consider other fiction if it is well-written and with an outstanding story to create amazing books and turn them into bestsellers. We look forward to working with authors from across the world to turn their wonderful books into bestsellers.

We accept submissions from agents, previously published authors (including self-published authors) with long backlists, to first-time writers with only one book to their credit. We are dedicated to pouring all our efforts into each and every book we publish.
