    [Publisher] Head of Zeus

    A new publishing company in London. Anyone knows if they accept unsolicited manuscripts?

    Adding link: http://www.headofzeus.com/

    There's no page about submissions, so I don't think they're currently accepting unsolicited submissions.

    That aside, their covers are gorgeous, and they look very professional. They've only started since January. My only complaint is that they seem to publish a large variety of genres.

    From their about us page:

    Our list will be a mix of general and literary fiction, genre fiction and non fiction.
    I do like that they're only publishing 24 titles this year, and 36 the next year. That's 2 titles a month, and 3 titles next year.

    Anthony Cheetham, the CEO, is hugely experienced in UK publishing and they have some seriously heavyweight authors on board

    I see their books regularly in Waterstones. Never heard of any of their editorial staff attending conventions, or seen any indication that they are other than agent-only submissions.

    I currently see a notice "Submissions Are Closed" on their website. Are they periodically open to unsolicited submissions?
