Publish your book

If you have a book or idea you would like us to consider, please contact our editorial department by e-mail at or phone 01970 832 304. One of our editors will be happy to give you advice on your proposal, and suggest how best to submit it.

Y Lolfa books are well known for being both popular and smart, for their high quality editorial work and for professional promotion and marketing. We take pride in the professional way we deal with royalties, grants and copyright payments.

Grants and author contributions

Some of our books receive grant aid from the Welsh Books Council. However, some types of books (e.g local interest books) that are more specialist are unlikely to pay their way without a grant. For this type of book we may invite an author contribution to the production costs, in exchange for an attractive Publication Agreement whereby we pay the author a larger than usual royalty, plus a commitment to keep in print.

These books are published under the normal Lolfa imprint and marketed in the usual way. Ask for full details and to arrange a meeting with us.
