Publish your books with us!

It can be challenging for writers and even existing authors to get noticed in front of publishers. That's why we created an easy to navigate and straightforward online submission system. Since 2020, our system has allowed authors of all genres to have their work considered by one of our editors.


Please note that 5310 Publishing only accepts unsolicited manuscript submissions through our electronic system.
