We are a small traditional publishing house in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
Thank you for supporting our authors and their books. Each book we publish has been carefully selected from open submissions and agency referrals, refined to its greatest potential by our editors, and produced and published in-house. Some of our signed authors came to our attention by shortlisting in the Hawkeye Manuscript Development Prize.
We look for manuscripts that will leave a lasting footprint on a reader’s heart and imagination. Our submission requirements are detailed here. If seeking publication we recommend accessing our titles to research your fit within our catalogue.
Hawkeye is a member of the Australian Publishers Association.
You can find Hawkeye books through all good bookstores and libraries, and at hawkeyebooks.com.au.
To be offered a traditional publishing contract by us your manuscript is exemplary, your writing original, and your book sought by readers. You most likely have worked with a professional editor prior to approaching us. Your manuscript is ready to be published with a light line edit, and proofreading phases.
In an exceptional circumstance when we believe you have a very good manuscript and a book that we strongly believe will be embraced by the market, but your manuscript requires significant work, we may take you on under a hybrid contract. We rarely offer hybrid contracts. There would have to be a compelling reason for us to offer you this option. Most serious authors have worked with a professional editor before approaching us.
