D.O.V PUBLISHING House

Welcome to D.O.V Publishing House – a trading name of Diaries of a Visionary Limited. Here at D.O.V Publishing House we specialise in creating and publishing best-selling titles in all kinds of genres.

Our current titles available on Amazon include:

  • Diaries of a Visionary Inspiring Dreams – an inspirational memoir written by Desiri Okobia
  • I AM Bodel – a best-selling YA Fiction Title written by Desiri Okobia

We are currently accepting submissions for Young Adult Fiction books; in particular our interest is in characters of multi-cultural backgrounds. Here at D.O.V Publishing House we create fictional characters that explore the real issues that young people face whilst growing up. If you believe that you have a unique title or book idea that you would like to submit then please follow the submissions guidelines below.

For all submissions:

  • Email your submission to: info@diariesofavisionary.co.uk

  • Introduce the project, mentioning genre, age and word count (eg is it a funny picture book, or a fantasy for 11+?).

  • Tell us a bit about yourself, mentioning any books already published, any writing/illustration courses taken, and perhaps what has inspired you to write for children. It’s also helpful to know where you are currently based.

  • Attach your submission, as outlined below.

Fiction:  

  • Write a brief ‘blurb’ about the novel in the body of the email – just an outline of the main themes and/or story arc. Make it sound exciting/interesting!

  • Attach the first three chapters or the first 50 pages, preferably formatted with 1.5 line spacing.

  • Attach a synopsis of the novel – one  side of A4.

Non-fiction:      

  • Give a brief overview of the book concept, proposed length, structure, readership, what led you to write it, and what published books you see it sitting alongside.

We read all submissions carefully, and aim to respond within six weeks.

If you have any queries or would like to discuss your project then please send us a message using the contact form below.
